  1. Awesome graphic! One note spotted right away (for future correction): the EA-6B silhouettes for VAQ-134 are incorrectly identified as EA-18G. Not sure if this was intentional due to the transition to Growler or not.

    1. Thanks!

      Correct! And I should have even replaced the Prowler silhouettes with Growlers, but since they just finished the transition this month I thought I’d let them, just to have an extra type of silhouette on the graphic!

  2. Interesting but slightly misleading in that you did not include any of the Navy Remotely Piloted Vehicles. There is a small but important level of surveillance being performed remotely.

    1. I included a couple MQ-8B firescout, they are integrated in some of the HSM and HSL squadrons. I think the MQ-8C is still in evaluation, so is the Triton.

      I think that some surface combatants have some small RPVs as well, but they are not organized by squadron (are they organic to the ships?)
      or at least not that I know of.

      Let me know what you think, I’m always looking for ways to improve the accuracy of the graphics!
