Survivability and armour

Examine the survivability of the aircraft. Note how vulnerable the structure is and how secure the pilot is, whether the fuel tanks are armoured, etc. Describe the armour, if there is any, and also mention the vulnerability of other critical aircraft systems.

Armaments

Suspended armament

The Phantom FG.1 can be outfitted with the following ordnance:

  • 1 x 20 mm M61 cannon, -mounted (1,200 rpg)
  • 8 x 1,000 lb G.P. Mk.I bombs + 1 x 20 mm M61 cannon, -mounted (1,200 rpg) (8,000 lb total)
  • 108 x SNEB type 23 rockets + 1 x 20 mm M61 cannon, -mounted (1,200 rpg)
  • 4 x AIM-9D Sidewinder missiles + 1 x 20 mm M61 cannon, -mounted (1,200 rpg)
  • 4 x 1,000 lb G.P. Mk.I bombs + 4 x AIM-9D Sidewinder missiles + 1 x 20 mm M61 cannon, -mounted (1,200 rpg) (4,000 lb total)
  • 4 x AIM-9D Sidewinder missiles

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

Summarise and briefly evaluate the vehicle in terms of its characteristics and combat effectiveness. Mark its pros and cons in the bulleted list. Try not to use more than 6 points for each of the characteristics. Avoid using categorical definitions such as "bad", "good" and the like - use substitutions with softer forms such as "inadequate" and "effective".

Pros:

  • Great top speed; one of the fastest aircraft in the game.
  • Decent maneuverability for a plane of its size.
  • Great rate of climb, rivaled only by the F-104 Starfighter.
  • Adequate selection of secondary ordinance.
  • Powerful M61 Vulcan can wreak havoc against enemy aircraft.

Cons:

  • As with most jets, tends to bleed off energy in sustained turns.
  • Relatively big target due to its size.

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 If the historical reference turns out to be too long, take it to a separate article, taking a link to the article about the vehicle and adding a block "/History" (example: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.
