Word on EP-3's?

In primary currently, from what I hear EP-3's are still selecting with no transition or replacement in sight. Was wondering if anyone has heard differently?

There is a transition plan that is tied to the Triton program. Folks that select EP-3’s this year will have the opportunity for a full fleet tour.

In other words, avoid it like the plague. Transitions with no manned replacement are going to equal risk to career timelines and lots of potential headaches. Go TacAir, specifically Growlers, which is a growing community with a certain future.

Navy loves to throw money at P-8’s. If you like working directly with aircrew system operators and the general MPRA lifestyle, check that as well.

I really liked the idea of intelligence collection and am primarily looking for something that can (relatively) translate to a three letter agency afterwards. Growlers seem like a good choice for that but as always its risky as I’ve been told there’s more strike positions than EWO positions in intermediate/advanced.

Just about everything one could possibly do as a Naval Officer translates relatively easily into three letter agencies. Don't make that one of your criteria for platform preference.

He means having SCI and being accustomed to completing three times the amount of paperwork necessary to complete a task.
