As we chatted about interference cancellation systems, I couldn’t help but notice an odd decal decorating the side of the fuselage. I asked the pilot: What’s that aircraft decal on the fuselage?
“That’s an F-22,” he said.
Well, why is it there?
“Because this is the EA-18G that killed an F-22,” he explained.
Two ways to look at this.
A) Really? Killed by a Growler?? Really? That’s gotta hurt the zoomies right in their frilly little zoom-bags with the sweet green combat boots.
B) Really? The F-22 is SOOO awesome you felt the need to put a stencil on the side for a kill in an exercise? Have you nothing better to do? I’ve killed plenty of surface ships in exercises and you don’t see me tacking stenciled DDG’s and CVN’s on the side of the sail.
What do they say in football?
Act like you’ve been there before.
