about the McDonnell F-4J Phantom II
by 1982 the F4 had fought in 5 major conflicts, nine years in Southeast Asia, twice in the desert of the middle East and against each other at one time. It was used in every role; fighter interceptor, fighterbomber, reconnaissance, tanker and drone. They specialized in attack roles as wild weasel defense suppression and laser Designator bombers. They also defeated the best aircraft that the opposition could put against it. The only time It lost was when pitted against another F4, during the greek-turkey conflict. With the U.S. Navy in the headlines everyday with this new interceptor, the American defense department ordered competitive tests be flown against the best aircraft in the U.S. Air Force inventory. Convair’s f-106 Delta dart was selected to fly against the Navy’s Phantom II, and the Phantom easily won top speed, low-level speed, altitude, plus the unrefueled range and radar range
