History

 

The idea for this aircraft comes from my Nazi Cold War timeline on my alternate history wikia.

 

The RAN proposed the acquisition of Essex class carriers to the Government in 1964 to replace the Majestic class HMAS Melbourne. The aircraft the RAN proposed was the F-4B Phantom.

 

Operating an F-4B from the relatively small deck of an Essex class carrier is problematic, to say the least. On the other hand, the F-4K Phantom modifications would enable the operation of a Phantom from such a small deck.

 

The F-4K entered service in 1969. Three squadrons operated the Phantom; 805 Squadron, which operated from HMAS Melbourne; 808 Squadron, which operated from HMAS Sydney; and 724 Squadron, which conducted the RAN's Phantom training from HMAS Albatross in Nowra, NSW. Both 805 and 808 Squadrons were homeported at HMAS Albatross. They initially served beside the RAN's A-4E Skyhawks. From 1972, the Phantom's counterpart was the A-7E Corsair II.

 

They served in the Vietnam War protecting supply convoys to North Vietnam to aid its fight against the Fascist regime in the South. They subsequently served in the Gulf War of 1995. After the war, the F-4K was replaced by the McDonnell Douglas FV-16C Wraith STOVL fighter.

 

The F-4K remained in service until 1995.

These skins can be integrated with the British-style F-4K Phantom FG.22 mod which is also available. Note that this aircraft has a different name. The British-style version's name is "F-4K Phantom FG.22 (RAN)", while this mod is named "F-4K Phantom (RAN)"
