US Navy F-4 Phantom II MiG Killers 1965-70 Paperback
by Brad Elward
Illustrated by Jim Laurier, Iain Wyllie
Part of the Osprey Combat Aircraft series
For every American fighter pilot involved in the Vietnam War, the ultimate goal was to "kill a MIG".
In eight years of conflict, 43 Vietnamese Peoples Air Force aircraft were claimed by US navy and US marine corps Phantom II crews.
Navy Phantom II's scored the first kills of the Vietnam War in April 1965, as well as scoring the last in January 1973.
This volume charts the successes of the navy fighter crews as they encountered "MIG's, missiles and AAA" over the jungles of North Vietnam.
It is packed with first-hand accounts from combat veterans and features scale plans of all the major navy F-4 variants.
