U.S. Navy EA-18G Growler Sports Mysterious Mi-24 Kill Mark | Aviation

A U.S. Navy Sailor, left, and a U.S. Air Force Airman standby to support pre-flight checks are conducted at an undisclosed location in the U.S. Central Command area of responsibility, May 2, 2024. Note the kill marking (U.S. Air Force photo)

The kill mark can be seen in a recent photo of an EA-18G assigned to VAQ-130, currently deployed in the Red Sea aboard the USS Eisenhower aircraft carrier. The Navy, however, has never disclosed any aerial kill of the Growler and the Houthi’s access to Hind helicopters is unconfirmed.

The U.S. Air Force released through AFCENT (United States Air Forces Central) on DVIDS (Defense Visual Information Distribution Service) a photo of a U.S. Navy EA-18G Growler’s crew preparing for a joint mission with F-15E Strike Eagles. The photo might have gone unnoticed if it weren’t for a detail on the aircraft: a kill mark of a Mi-24 Hind attack helicopter on the fuselage.

We don’t know much about the photo, other than it was taken on May 2, 2024 at an undisclosed location in the U.S. Central Command area of responsibility. As it can be seen of the fuselage, the aircraft is assigned to the Electronic Attack Squadron (VAQ) 130 “Zappers”, which is deployed aboard the USS Dwight D. Eisenhower aircraft carrier, although the photo was taken at a land base.
