Hmm!  Not a lot different to the F-101A ---

Reveals a drawing showing a F4H with guns pretty much positioned as above.

What is interesting though is that the preference was moving away from 20mm towards 30mm cannon.

That's very interesting GTX, because I was leaning towards suggesting 2 x 30mm cannon in place of 4 x 20mm cannons, as the metamorphosis of the YF4H into a carrier-based interceptor (prodomantly a bomber killer) would mean the 30mm cannon would have much greater destructive power....Also, as the Phantom II became more multi-role, these same 30mm cannon would also be far more effective against ground targets....
