"The large payload makes this fighter good for ground attacks. A fighter ace it's not, but still a good multi-role plane."
Harry's description of this plane in the shop.

The F-4E Phantom II was an aircraft created around the time of the Vietnam War. It was created as an interceptor, being capable of hitting mach 2.2. It's had an incredibly long service time, existing in service even up until 2017 in other nations. It has appeared in all three Airforce Delta games, and sees use by John Rundal in Airforce Delta Strike.

Design (All Games)

The F-4E is an interesting looking craft; it's a very large and bulky craft, with an odd rear-wing set up (being connected to the vertical stabilizer instead of the side of the craft like most other planes). It has a twin-engine design, and two large, slightly curved wings.

Performance

Airforce Delta

A decent early-game plane, unlocked after the second mission. It has less mobility than the F-5E, but all other stats are superior. Compared to other early game craft, it's superior to the Kfir C.7 in all aspects, but it has less power than the MiG-21. It's not a bad plane for early game, but you will quickly find yourself replacing it once better rolls around, and better is just around the corner in this game.

Airforce Delta Storm

A plane with surprisingly solid stats for the early game, that's absolutely crippled by one major flaw: It has a pathetic 1 range. So despite having great stats, you'll still have to stop at every intercept point to waste your time shooting down mooks. Therefore, despite being objectively better than a lot of planes in your arsenal at this point, it's still a bog-standard early plane thanks to the atrocious range, and will quickly be retired once better rolls around, like its enhanced counterpart, the F-4S. Having a poor attack stat isn't doing it any favors either.

Airforce Delta Strike

A fairly decent anti-ground plane for John. It's got okay stats all around. However, it's a bit hamstrung by its poor special weapon, which is hard to aim properly and doesn't deal much damage at all. Therefore, this should probably be replaced by the MiG-33 "Fulcrum" once it's unlocked, as it can do this plane's job, but better.
