This sheet includes markings to complete any four of the fifteen F4J Phantoms purchased by the RAF as stand-ins for the still in development Fighter Variant of the Panavia TornadoF.2/F.3. The 'J' was used by No74 'Tiger' Squadron and served for almost 10 years until replaced by the Tornado ADV. The F4J was a direct purchase of former US aircraft with no provision for standard RAF equipment so flight crew had to use USAAF flying gear compatible with the ACES ejection seats fitted to the aircraft. The F4J also came with the J79 Turbojet, notice the long, vaned exhaust and slimmer intakes which were modified by the British when the Rolls Royce Spey was fitted. The decal sheet comes with a full suite of stencilling data although not all stencilling was present on every aircraft; it is recommended you check with your reference as to broadly what was used on the aircraft you wish to depict. Also, a few flight crew names are included but these, of course, would have changed over the career of each aircraft.
