The nuclear symbol on the nose (last picture) is interesting. Could some one comment on this please.

Morning Dick, don't think it's 'nuclear', more likely the symbol used to differentiate between the Prowler and Intruder for the carrier landing officer, as the Prowler had a higher landing weight and the arrester wires are pre tentioned for the aircraft landing on.
