By 1982, the F-4J Phantom II had fought in 5 major conflicts, including nine years in Southeast Asia, twice in the desert of the Middle East, and against each other at one time. It was a versatile aircraft that was used in every role, including fighter interceptor, fighter bomber, reconnaissance, tanker, and drone. The F-4J Phantom II specialized in attack roles such as wild weasel defense suppression and laser Designator bombers. It proved its superiority by defeating the best aircraft that the opposition could put against it, with the only loss occurring when pitted against another F-4 during the Greek-Turkey conflict.
