USA104 McDonnell Douglas F-4B Phantom (1:285)
This pack contains one Douglas F-4B Phantom.
The Phantom is another example of a versatile aircraft whose flexibility made it extremely useful and widely used. It is a two-seat carrier borne, fighter bomber. It saw extensive service in the Vietnam War and was still in use in the 'wild weasel' radar suppression role in the Gulf War. It was used by a wide range of countries seeing combat with the Israeli air force and the Iranians. It used air-to-air missiles as it's primary air defence weapon. The lack of dog fight training was highlighted in the Vietnam War, after which the Top Gun school was set up to correct the omission.
