F-4 PHANTOM II
The F-4 Phantom II first flew in May, 1958. It was originally designed as an attack fighter; a fighter jet capable of duking it out air-to-air with other fighters, but also capable of ground attack bombing. With its distinguishable crooked nose, serrated wings, two J-79 engines, and large air intakes, the F-4 was emblematic of Western air power during the Cold War.
Adaptable to a variety of tasks, the F-4 would serve as a multi-role fighter, fleet air defense interceptor, air defense suppression aircraft, and reconnaissance aircraft. A total of 5,195 F-4s were built altogether, serving with the U.S. Navy, Air Force, Marines, and air forces of 11 allied countries.
