The RF-4C was an unarmed reconnaissance variant of the F-4C Phantom II. It was designed for information gathering. The RF-4C can carry a variety of cameras in three different stations in its nose section and take photos at both high and low altitude, day or night. It carried no offensive weapons, although during the last few years of service some were fitted with AIM-9 Sidewinder missiles for defense. The first production aircraft made its initial flight on May 18, 1964.
The McDonnell Douglas F-4 Phantom is a two-seat, twin-engine supersonic jet fighter originally developed for the US Navy. Proving highly adaptable, it became a major part of the air wings of the US Navy, Marine Corps and Air Force. The F-4 Phantom was used extensively by all three of these services in the Vietnam War, serving as the principal fighter/bomber for the U.S. Navy and Air Force, as well as being important in the ground-attack and air reconnaissance roles.
