Hi all,

I have to admit, I have a hard time telling the difference between an F-4C and an F-4D Phantom. How can you tell? What are the distinguishing features?

I was looking at this photo

and thought it was a D, then I look at the info and nope, it's a C.

Hi Ray,
the most discernible external difference between the -C and -D is the additional bulge attached under the IR-seeker below the radome.

Oh yes, I see it now. Thanks Andreas! If it wasn't for that, it'd be very hard to distinguish the two.
