Good point !

Well, in this case you can take advance of not bend marginal area. Even you can use the design of F-15 prototype and some other studies in order to have an additional AAM rail.

F-4EJ XKai: ysi_maniac's second idea for Second Korean War GB
« Reply #316 on: February 14, 2018, 01:12:03 PM »



My current ideas about this modernization project:
- F-15 wings
- I think it is convinient to use F-15's tail plane for a matter of compatibility. Less canted than F-4's
- Minor tail fin mod, for aesthetic purposes
- A new less framed canopy, a little raised which allows to raise ejection seats
- Use of F-15 ejection seats?

What do you think?
Would you delete any of these mods?
Would you add any other mod?

F-15 mods to F-4 fit so well.  Ideal for a kit-bash. :smiley:

Some of the last F-4s produced had frameless "blown" windscreens, so this isn't too far out at all.

Hi Evan, what do you think about using F-15 tail plane or F-15 ejection seats?

I don't see a problem with the first, offhand, and the second would likely introduce a better seat to the aircraft.

I have a thought for a single-seat variant going back to the original low canopy profile, fitting a blown windscreen, and using the F-15 wing, likely with the extra wingtip rails for Sidewinders and the like.

F-4B as featured in the backstory of Japanese anime "Battle Fairy Yukikaze".  The premise is that, after beating back an alien invasion of Earth, an United Nations counter-attack pushed the enemy back to the other side of the alien venue of attack, a planet named "Faery" by the Humans, and used re-activated military surplus (MiG-21, F-4, F-106, etc.) to build up their fleets.

Strange choice- the FAF (Faery/Fairy Air Force) does eventually operate aerial aircraft carriers, but (I think) not during the timeframe where they were still flying their first gen. aircraft.  Wouldn't the F-4E have been more easily-available?

My understanding is that the origins of the F-4K RR Spey powered Phantom, apart from political requirements to use UK systems, was so they could be operated from the UKs smaller carriers, specifically Victorious and Hermes, through until their planed retirements in the 1970s. 

Does anyone know if this was actually viable?  I recall reading somewhere that it wasn't but could Hermes have been upgraded successfully operate F-4K?

How about LEX leading edge extensions? You would have to shorten the leading edge slats.

Interesting.  Maybe do one in similar scheme to their F-104s:
