USAF F-4 Phantom II Mig Killers 1965-68, Paperback

USAF F-4 Phantom II Mig Killers 1965-68 Paperback

Part of the Combat Aircraft series


The USAF introduced the F-4C Phantom II into the Vietnam war in April 1965 from Ubon RTAB, Thailand.

The F-4C/D soon became the Air Force's principal fighter over the North, destroying 85 MiGs by the close of 1968.

This book describes how the USAF turned a gunless naval interceptor into an opponent to the more nimble VPAF MiGs.

It explains how the Air Force gradually followed US Navy initiatives in the use of the F-4's missile armament but employed very different tactics and aircrew training.

The roles of key personalities such as Col. Robin Oldany are discussed, together with armament and markings, crews and engagements.
