Synopsis

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

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.

About the Author

Based in Bristol, Peter is also presently working with Brad Elward on another volume on F-4 MiG Killers in 1972-73. Jim Laurier attended Paier School of Art in Hamden and has been working professionally in the field of fine art and illustration ever since. As a pilot he combines his love of history with his flying experiences to create some of the most realistic and historically accurate aviation paintings available. Jim has aviation paintings on permanent display at the Pentagon and has been published in many books, magazines, and calendars.
