The F-4E Phantom II is a dual-seat multirole fighter aircraft created by the former McDonnell Douglas.

DescriptionEdit

One of the foremost aircraft of the United States Armed Forces during the mid to late 20th century, the F-4 was originally conceived in 1952 as a successor to the F3H Demon to satisfy US Navy requirements for an all-weather fighter-bomber. A preliminary prototype, the XF4H-1, was made two years later and competed against the Vought XF8U-3 Crusader III, which it ultimately defeated. It was named after the FH-1 Phantom, a carrier aircraft previously produced by the company.

The Phantom II was adopted in 1962 on the orders of Robert McNamara as a unified aircraft for the USAF, including the Navy, Marine Corps and the Air Force, its main user. It was one of the United States' main fighters during the Vietnam War, and was exported to several other countries, including Japan, Australia and Turkey. It was retired from combat service by the US in 1996, but remains operational in other nations. The most produced variant was the F-4E of the USAF, of which over 5,000 were produced.

Strangereal universeEdit

In the Strangereal world, the F-4E was employed as a carrier-based fighter by several militaries, including the Independent States Allied Forces and the Aurelian Navy. Other countries, such as Belka and the Osean Federation, fielded them instead as conventional air force aircraft. During the Emmeria-Estovakia War, F-4Es were deployed in a limited manner by the Estovakian Air Force, and were supposedly retired from combat service after the Emmerian counterattack campaign. A single F-4E was also used by Gustav Dvornik presumably as his personal aircraft.

Infinity universe Edit

The Phantom saw extremely limited use in the USEA Federation. A few units were seen in action over Tokyo, but most if not all units were shot down by the UNF.

As for the UNF, the F-4E was a very popular aircraft for starters, being one of the most flown aircraft during Operation Eternal Liberation.

Called the "Phantom II," it is the first aircraft shared by three branches of the U.S. Armed Forces: the Navy, Marines, and Air Force.
