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?
