Bruce Radebaugh is his name and his post I believe was under the Vendor thread.



Sure that wasn't Erik Mark?

You're right! Look here:

http://www.airwar.ru...er/f4_d/rwo.jpg
http://www.airwar.ru...d/rwo_loran.jpg


The first photo shows the LORAN controls mounted center above Aft Inst. Panel.

The second photo shows a standard aft cockpit arrangement (if there actually was such).
There was no scope involved in the LORAN system as I remember. :hmmm:

The differences in the Radar Scopes was due to the different radar installed in the C and D models.
The C had the AN/APQ-100 and the D had the AN/APQ-109.

New question on Phantom armament:

In the photos below, what is the object between the AIM-4(D, I believe) missile and the inboard pylon? Is it specifically for mounting the AIM-4? It's new one to me.

A/C are from the 13th FS 432 TRW out of Udorn in 1967-68.

Any assistance will be greatly appreciated.

P.S.: Note strike camera under stbd. wing/fuselage join on 714 & 721. Also, looks like additional ECM pod mounted centerline on 721.

Hi!

You're right: AIM-4 Falcon missiles used a specific mounting.

I've somewhere a good picture of this mounting under the inboard pylon of a ...Japanese F-4EJ!

From my above post:

"P.S.: Note strike camera under stbd. wing/fuselage join on 714 & 721. Also, looks like additional ECM pod mounted centerline on 721."


Thanks to the sharp eyes of LSP member Tony T, the "ECM pod" mounted on the centerline rack is actually an empty MER. I happily stand corrected. This is an excellent example of why LSP so great!

Best Regards,

D.B.
