Diecast Aircraft Information  Diecast Aircraft Information MetalWings Diecast Aircraft Reference by Dauntless Aviation
The F-4E variant was an improved version of the C/D with an elongated nose and compact
radar. These two things made it possible to install a 20mm M61A1 6 barrel 640 round Vulcan
gun pod in the nose. The F-4E was the most produced variant with 1387 aircraft being made
over its 12 year production period. The “E” also equipped more air forces than any other variant
of the Phantom II.


In the 1970s South Korea felt a possible security risk from North Korea so they decided to
acquire Northrop F-5Es and McDonnell Douglas F-4Es to bolster their defense capabilities as a
deterrent to aggression. Ex-USAF F-Ds were procured in the late 1960s and in 1978 the first of
the new built F-4Es began to arrive. F-4E 60-499 c/n 4972 was originally assigned to the 152nd
/ 17th FW at Cheongju. In 2019 this aircraft was assigned to the 153 Fighter Squadron at Suwon
Air Base.

Around 2008 the RoKAF began to reduce its reliance on the Phantom and replacing them with
the new F-35.
