Developed from the A-6 Intruder, the EA-6B Prowler is a tactical electronic warfare aircraft designed to jam enemy radar systems. The Prowler is highly effective at its job. Since its introduction in 1971 the Prowler has fought in Vietnam, The Gulf War and Operation Iraqi Freedom among others. The Prowler works by detecting enemy radar signals and then emitting electronic counter measures on the same frequency thereby blinding the enemy. Continually upgraded throughout its service life, the Prowler can also carry the AGM-88 High Speed Anti-Radiation Missile (HARM). This weapon gives the Prowler the capability to strike the radar installations it detects. The EA-6B Prowler is so effective at its job that no aviator wants to fly over hostile territory without a Prowler to provide the electronic shield. It has been reported that the Prowler has been used effectively in Afghanistan to jam electronic devices used to remotely detonate improvised explosive devices.
Mark, you have amazing work. love it. do you have any tutorial or suggestion for a beginner? Thanks,
So nice....I can look at it all day....
This is so well rendered, with so much subtlety, it's almost photographic! Amazing work!!!
Mark. Is your work oil painting, acrylic, digital painting or a combo. Do you use model renderings? Just curious. Very nice work.
So beautiful...love it!
wow...again, u r amazing...
Do you have FSX (Microsoft flight simulator 10)?
Excellent work as always Mark
A bird with a lot of character, great stuff!
Obviously you've done an outstanding job on the lighting...as that is the first thing I noticed, especially on the cockpit...and prior comments seem to concur. This is beautiful...I feel like I'm there. Having just finished reading about the Intruder/Prowler series a few weeks ago...I can appreciate your work even more!
Thank you very much. I realized the gold color of the cockpit would be a major focus area. It was a tricky balance to get the color just right for the lighting conditions.
Wow! I was waiting for this. Yes!
Once again Fantastic work here.
Once again Fantastic work here.
Ah nice! Love this jet in a big way.
Thanks Lyle. I love it too. It looks a bit like a giant tadpole with wings but it has a lot of character. It's mission is fascinating to me as well.
Yes, the lighting is fantastic! I really like the cockpit area as well, the reflections on the glazing. Spot-on mate!
Thank you very much Luke. This piece is all about the lighting.
good work ! the light in this one is truly beautiful.
a bud of mine used to fly these with VMAQ-2 "Playboys" when they still had full-colour markings....
Another absolutely magnificent study mate. The light on the nose is incredibly effective as is the effect of the atmospherics you've so deftly dropped into the background.
Once again very beautiful piece. U know to me, one of the more forgotten heroes of Vietnam was the F-101 Voodoo. Don't know why I like that bird so much
Thanks. I need to do a Voodoo one of these days. I've accumulated hundreds of references on the airplane.
Beautiful. Glad to see an older airframe kept in service like that.
Thanks. Their days are number though. Only the Marines fly them on active duty now. The Navy still has a training squadron I think.
Unfortunate, but at the same time, what can be done? Technology is outpacing the old design...
Yeah but sadly she may not stay in service for much longer because of the Boeing EA-18G Growler. But let's not forget that when she goes, she served her country long and well and she will be remembered and the prave men and wemon who flew her in harms way.
she's a good ol bird
