VMFA-232 "Red Devils"

The unit with the longest history among the Marines famous for the "Red Devils", drawn on the fuselage. They played an important role during the Linebacker Operations in North Vietnam. And, they're also famous because they stationed in Japan for a long time after the war.

Since its first flight in 1958, the F-4 was produced in 5195 machines and extensively adopted by the countries of the former Western Bloc, achieving important results in many battlefields like Middle Eastern War, Gulf War and Vietnam War. The airframe design follows the layout of the F3H, previously built by the same manufacturer, with the sharp radome pointing to the front of the tandem cockpit. The intakes are on both sides of the cockpit, leading the air to the twin-engine J79 through the duct, enhancing the engine efficiency. A unique aircraft developed in many variations and still used by several air forces (e.g. Israeli Air Force, Japan Air Self-Defense Force) that created their own, improved versions.
