Prowler taxis out for a Rwy 31 departure. Crew consists of 1 pilot and 3 EW (Electronic Warfare/Weapons Systems) officers or WSO's. Originally EA-6's had no offensive weaponry; making them vunerable to enemy fighters and ground attack. But Shrike missiles and limited bombing capabilities were later added. Still no air-to-air missiles or gun. But if you fly within it's EW system's operating range; it could fry the enemy aircraft's electronic components. Thus turning them into expensive paperweights!
