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.
The first Hellenic Air Force (Greece) F-4E Phantom II arrived on April 4, 1974. In June 2019 the HAF sent aircraft to Volkel AB in the Netherlands for Air Force Days 2019. F-4E AUP 72-1507 from 338 Mira (Squadron) was given a special paint scheme for the occasion. On the right side of the tail is Spooky wearing a Greek flag, holding a gun with a tulip in the barrel and wearing Dutch clogs. On the left side is ARES (Mars) God Of War who has been the 338 symbol since 1974.
