The F-4E variant was an improved version of the C/D with an elongated nose and compact radar. These two things made it possible to install a 20mm M61A1 6 barrel 640 round Vulcan gun pod in the nose. The F-4E was the most produced variant with 1387 aircraft being made over its 12 year production period. The “E” also equipped more air forces than any other variant of the Phantom II.

Six F-4Es from the 3rd TFS/ 3rd TFW “Peugeots” based at Clark AFB, Philippines staged at Hickman AFB on their way to Incirlik AB, Turkey but two had to stay at Spangdahlem due to mechanical problems. On February 22, 1991 the unit carried out it first mission led by F-4E 73-1199 marked as the 13th AF flagship. The mission involved AAA suppression for F-16s flying against Al Mosul. With their mission complete the F-Es departed Incirlik on March 19, 1991 and went directly to AMARC. In 2017 73-1199 was sent to be scrapped.
