Focus on: Italeri EF-111 A Raven 1:72 scale (kit no. 1235)

The General Dynamics EF-111 Raven was developed on the airframe of the F-111 Aardvark ground attack aircraft. The supersonic aircraft, with its characteristic variable geometry wings, has in fact been identified as a valid platform to host the electronic component necessary to effectively carry out the new tasks assigned. The EF-111 Raven has therefore become a point of reference for “Electronic Warfare” missions, being used in numerous operational activities in Libya, Bosnia and Iraq. Easily recognizable by the large protuberance on the rear fin, it had cutting-edge electronic equipment for the time such as radar for terrain mapping and the adoption of radar jamming systems and electronic countermeasures. The Cockpit has also been revised with the installation of the control “suite” designed for the EWO (Electronic Warfare Officer), the officer specialized in electronic warfare.

The General Dynamics EF-111 Raven was developed on the aerodynamic platform of the ground-attack aircraft F-111 Aardvark. The supersonic aircraft, featuring variable-geometry wings, was identified as a suitable platform to accommodate the electronic components necessary to effectively perform the new assigned tasks. The EF-111 Raven thus became a benchmark for Electronic Warfare missions, being employed in various operational activities in Libya, Bosnia, and Iraq. Easily recognizable by the prominent protrusion on the rear fin, it was equipped with state-of-the-art electronics for its time, including terrain-mapping radar and the adoption of radar jamming systems and electronic countermeasures. The cockpit was also redesigned with the installation of a control suite specifically configured for the Electronic Warfare Officer (EWO), the officer specializing in electronic warfare.
