The F-4E Phantom II is a fighter available to ANZAC and BLUFOR decks, first introduced in Wargame: Red Dragon.


The McDonnell Douglas F-4E Phantom II is a twin-engine, two seat supersonic fighter first flown as a prototype in 1965, and produced from 1967. It was the most produced variant of the F-4, and was the basis for several F-4 variants used by NATO-allied nations (e.g. F-4F and F-4EJ). One of its most notable features of the F-4E is its internal 20mm M61A1 Vulcan cannon - the F-4E was the first Phantom II model to carry an internal cannon. The F-4E features improved fuel capacity, the APQ-120 radar, and slatted wings for improved maneuverability. It is powered by the J79-GE-17 turbojet engine. In Australian service, the F-4E was leased starting in 1970 as an interim multi-role combat aircraft until the United States delivered the F-111C Aardvark in 1973.


The F-4E Phantom II is a moderately-priced air superiority fighter available to ANZAC and BLUFOR decks. It carries an internal M61A1 Vulcan cannon, four AIM-9B Sidewinder and four AIM-7F Sparrow air-to-air missiles. The type has Exceptional air detection. The F-4E is able to attack helicopters with its four AIM-9's and enemy fighters at long or short ranges. The 20mm Vulcan gives the F-4E a level of tactical flexibility, allowing it to strafe infantry and lightly armored vehicles.

The major drawbacks of the F-4E are its poor ECM and its missile performance. Although the type does carry ECM, it is not powerful, which leaves the F-4E vulnerable to long range SAMs and AAMs. Its AIM-9B is not particularly accurate or maneuverable, and its AIM-7F is a semi-active missile, requiring the F-4E to continue to close with its target until the missile hits, increasing the probability of the F-4E taking return fire. At 100 points per aircraft, the F-4E provides the player with decent mid-range air superiority capabilities.
