The F-35 Lightning aircraft undertake the Electronic Attack roles similar to the E/A-18 Growler. Fitted with the AN/APG-81 radar and AN/ASQ-239 system, the F-35 has robust electronic warfare (EW) Capabilities and can operate in the EW role utilising the Active Electronically Scanned Array (AESA) multi-function radar.
