Marine Tactical Electronic Warfare Squadron 4 (VMAQ-4) ‘Seahawks’ returned home to MCAS Cherry Point, North Carolina, on October 10 following the unit’s last operational deployment with the EA-6B Prowler. The unit has completed a six-month deployment with United States Central Command (CENTCOM) at Incirlik Air Base in Turkey.

According to Lt Col Paul K. Johnson III, commanding officer of VMAQ-4, the Marines conducted electronic warfare and disrupted so-called Islamic State (IS) communications in Iraq and Syria in support of Operation ‘Inherent Resolve’. VMAQ-4 is to be deactivated in the summer of 2017.
