  •  Going by the engines, the F-4 was a big mofo (4+ / 0-)

    It packs twice the powerplant of a F-104, two GE J79 for the Phantom vs only one GE J79 for the StarFighter. And the J79 installed on the F-4 were 20% more powerful than the earlier ones of the F-104.

    F-4 Phantom, the discreet charm of raw thrust in the service of brute-force design.
