Air to Air

The F-4E Phantom II stands as an enduring testament to aerial supremacy, owing much of its reputation to its formidable air-to-air capabilities.

The AIM-7 Sparrow missile takes center stage in the Phantom II's air-to-air capabilities. Comprising a substantial portion of the F-4E's air-to-air armament, the Sparrow's radar-guided system allows pilots to engage adversaries before they enter the visual horizon.


In close-quarters engagements, the F-4E relies on the AIM-9 Sidewinder, a short-range, infrared-guided missile celebrated for its agility and responsiveness. Constituting a vital component of the Phantom II's air-to-air weaponry, the Sidewinder excels in the intense and dynamic scenarios of dogfights.
