E-6B Block I Mod

The E-6B is a Boeing 707 airframe loaded with high-tech communication equipment. The E-6B has the ability to communicate directly with the nation's ballistic submarine fleet. Its battle staff, when airborne, is under the command of a flag officer — an Air Force general officer or a Navy admiral. General and flag officers are from USSTRATCOM, the Air Force's Air Mobility Command (AMC) and Air Combat Command (ACC), Air Force Space Command (AFSPC), the Navy's Commander, Submarine Group NINE, Pacific (COMSUBGRU NINE) and Commander, Submarine Group TEN, Atlantic (COMSUBGRU TEN), and the Air Force and Navy Reserve.

L3 created the E-6B platform by combining the mission systems of the E-6A and the EC-135 platforms.
