F-4E Phantom II

Calling all Phantom Phanatics...

The McDonnell two-place, twinjet, all-weather F-4 Phantom II, with top speeds more than twice that of sound, was one of the most versatile fighters ever built.

The F-4 established 16 speed, altitude and time-to-climb records. In 1959, its prototype set the world altitude record at 98,556 feet. In 1961, an F-4 set the world speed record at 1,604 mph on a 15-mile circuit.

F-4's saw combat in both the Vietnam War and Operation Desert Storm and served with the air forces of 11 countries in addition to the United States. Both U.S. military flight demonstration teams, the Navy Blue Angels and the Air Force Thunderbirds, flew the Phantom II from 1969 to 1973.


Max Speed: Mach 2.23 (1,472 mph, 2,370 km/h)

Service Ceiling: 60,000 ft (18,300 m)

Rate of Climb: 41,300 ft/min (210 m/s)

Power Plant: Two 17,900-pound-thrust General Electric J79-GE-17A turbojets

Armament: 15,983 pounds of weapons

Introducing the MilViz F-4E Phantom II

We are very proud to present our F-4E Phantom, now with multi-platform support!

A Definitive Simulation

Utilizing every resource available to us and spending countless hours in design, testing, revising, and more testing again, we're confident that our model represents an extremely true-to-life rendition of the real world aircraft. We've taken great care in presenting an authentic environment for the virtual pilot; closely reproducing the original in looks, systems, sounds and flight modelling.

Attention To Detail

The cockpit of an F-4 represents a busy, complex workplace for the pilot. However, we've strived to perfect the feel of actually sitting in the pilots seat, being able to scan your vital instrumentation with a glance, all replicated with high resolution textures and smooth 3D animation. Being able to run through checklists, flipping all of the needed switches and toggles, monitoring systems as they spring to life. Being able to light the engines and feel the rumble of the massive turbojets behind you. Every bit of it, in your control and command!

Choose Your Loadout

We've included a very large selection of authentic weapons and pods to outfit your F-4 with. Our configuration menu lets you setup and configure your payload any way you wish, allowing you to configure for almost any mission. And of course, adding or removing ordinance or fuel will have an appropriate effect on flight dynamics and handling characteristics.

Important: All weapons in the Standard Edition are completely non-functional with the exception of jettison abilities.

Variety And Possibility

Seeing as the F-4E was the most numerous Phantom variant, with some 1,370 built, as well as the most widely exported Phantom, having seen service with 9 countries outside of the US, there is no shortage of interesting liveries to consider. We've created a large number of extremely detailed liveries for your enjoyment; so many in fact that to lessen the size of the initial product download, we've provided a separate livery pack available for download, completely free. In addition, we're also providing a high quality paint kit for users to create their own liveries.

MVAMS

Our innovative MilViz Aircraft Management System (MVAMS) is included with this release. It allows for easy control and set-up of many aspects of the aircraft, including configuring the default start-up state, control configuration, aircraft behaviour and more. It also allows for easy notification and application of hotfixes as they are released for your aircraft.

Multi-Platform Support

The MilViz F-4E supports a full range of platforms, in a single downloadable installer:

  • FSX: Acceleration
  • FSX: Steam Edition
  • Prepar3d v2
  • Prepar3d v3
  • Prepar3d v4 New!

Extended Functionality Available

We now offer two optional & additional add-on modules for the MilViz F-4E Phantom II. These separately purchased modules are available to allow you to tailor your F-4E experience to your own liking.

Our TacPack module adds complete integration with the TacPack software available from Vertical Reality Simulations. This allows for simulation of combat activities within Flight Simulator X and Prepar3d and adds full weapon functionality and gunsight integration.

Our Advanced Series F-4E add-on module further extends the simulation fidelity and depth of the F-4E to allow for complete study level use of this very capable and complex aircraft.

Award Winning

" There is no doubt about it, these are a hell of an add-on."
- excerpt from the review at Mutley's Hangar, where we are very proud to say the F-4E scored a 9.7/10 and received a Mutley's Hangar Gold Award!

Vertical Reality Simulations' TacPack software offers stand-alone weapons and warfare platforms for Flight Simulator X and Prepar3d. It is a payware product, and is not included with your purchase of the TacPack Add-on MilViz MilViz F-4E Phantom II. A working installation of the TacPack software is required for full weapon functionality and gunsight integration.

Please Note: This product makes significant changes to the existing installation of the MilViz F-4E Phantom. Installing this product will make a reversion back to the original (non TacPack) F-4E product impossible. When uninstalling this product it will, by default and with no other option, completely uninstall both the TacPack Add-on as well as the original product.

Please make a back up of your F-4E installation directory BEFORE installing this product.
