History

 

The RAN ordered the Phantom to replace the de Havilland Sea Vixen FAW.22 which had served on Australia's Audacious class carrier HMAS Melbourne R21 (ex-HMS Africa). They were delivered in 1969, and served with two squadrons, 805 Squadron, which was the operational squadron embarked on HMAS Melbourne, and 724 Squadron, which served as a training unit. Both were homeported at HMAS Albatross in Nowra, NSW. Where necessary, additional training was provided in RAAF Phantom FGR.22s with 2 OCU at RAAF Williamtown.

 

The RAN's Phantom FG.21s served with Commonwealth forces in the Far East and the Indian Ocean for many years, including sporadic skirmishes with Indonesian aircraft and ships. In 1982, HMAS Melbourne was assigned to aid the British effort to liberate the Falklands from Argentine occupation.

 

After the Falklands War, the Phantom FG.21 continued to serve. HMAS Melbourne was paid off in 1987. The surviving Phantom FG.21s were turned over to the RAAF to provide spares for the RAAF's Phantom FGR.22 force. The final flight of a Phantom FG.21 in RAN markings was at the Australian Bicentennial Airshow in 1988.

Notes

 

There is also an RAN F-4K available wearing US-style schemes and a camouflage scheme based on that used by the RAN's A-4Gs late in their service. It can be integrated with this mod. Note that this mod has a different aircraft name. The name of this mod is "F-4K Phantom FG.21 (RAN)", while the US-style version is named "F-4K Phantom II (RAN)".
