Electronic Attack Squadron (VAQ) 133 “Wizards”


Provide strategic and tactical Airborne Electronic Warfare Support against any target when called upon​.

About Us

VAQ-133 was commissioned in 1969 and had a long and proud tradition of excellence in the EA-6B Prowler community. With the transition to the EA-18G Growler completed as of June 2014, the Wizards continue to maintain our standard of excellence well into the future of Electronic Attack.

The EA-18G Growler aircraft we fly represents the most advanced technology in airborne Electronic Attack and stands as the Navy’s first line of defense in hostile environments. 

A variant of the F/A-18F Super Hornet Block II, the EA-18G Growler combines the capability of the combat-proven Super Hornet with the latest AEA avionics suite evolved from the Improved Capability III (ICAP III) system. The EA-18G’s vast array of sensors and weapons provides the warfighter with a lethal and survivable weapon system to counter current and emerging threats.
