Usage in battles

Describe the tactics of playing in the aircraft, the features of using aircraft in a team and advice on tactics. Refrain from creating a "guide" - do not impose a single point of view, but instead, give the reader food for thought. Examine the most dangerous enemies and give recommendations on fighting them. If necessary, note the specifics of the game in different modes (AB, RB, SB).

Pros and cons

Pros:

  • Eased up modifications over the F-4EJ
    • Comes with 2 x AIM-9Ps stock instead of 2 x AIM-9Bs
    • 4 x AIM-9Ps is a tier I mod without the need of AIM-9Es
  • AN/APG-66J Pulse Doppler Radar
  • A wide range of suspended armaments, suitable for any play-style
    • AIM-7E-2 (Dogfight) capable
  • Deadly frontal armament with high burst mass
  • Makes use of a ballistic computer for assisting in the aim of cannons, rockets, and bombs against ground targets
  • Large reserve of countermeasures

Cons:

  • Limited ammunition in the frontally-mounted cannon
  • Quite large and heavy compared to other fighters at its rank

History

Describe the history of the creation and combat usage of the aircraft in more detail than in the introduction. If the historical reference turns out to be too long, take it to a separate article, taking a link to the article about the vehicle and adding a block "/History" (example: https://wiki.warthunder.com/(Vehicle-name)/History) and add a link to it here using the main template. Be sure to reference text and sources by using <ref></ref>, as well as adding them at the end of the article with <references />. This section may also include the vehicle's dev blog entry (if applicable) and the in-game encyclopedia description (under === In-game description ===, also if applicable).

Media

Excellent additions to the article would be video guides, screenshots from the game, and photos.
