This magazine focuses on the third F-4 Phantom II. The F-4 Phantom was born in the age of universal missile theory. The need for fixed armament (machine guns) arose from experienced gained in war games and more, and the F-4E was created by extending the nose of the F-4D reconnaissance version used by the U.S. Air Force, and mounting a 20mm Vulcan gun under it. The F-4E was used as a main fighter in Japan and many other countries. The so-called British Phantom F-4D underwent its own evolution when its engine was replaced with the Rolls-Royce Spey engine, leading to its being known as the Spey Phantom.
