Notes
For ECM missions, the Prowler carries one or more hardpoint-mounted ALQ-99 active jamming pods. Each pod carried is represented as an ECM Perk at Rating 3, and are managed in the Laboratory (ECM) by the two ECM officers in the rear seats (sometimes referred to as the "office"). A common configuration is to carry a pair of ALQ-99 pods, which increases the TV to 1730.
