USAF F-4 Phantom II Mig Killers 1965-68 Paperback
by Peter Davies
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.
