Inscription. The F-4 Phantom II was a two seat supersonic long range all weather fighter-bomber originally built for the US Navy. The Phantom II began service aboard aircraft carriers in the early 1960s, and would set many speed and performance records. During the Vietnam War, the Phantom II would be used by the Navy, Marines, and Air Force. The Navy began replacing the Phantom II with the F-14 Tomcat in the mid 1970s. Marines used the Phantom II until replaced by the F/A-18 Hornet in the early 1990s. The last Air Force version (F-4G Wild Weasel) retired in 1996. The Phantom II continues to serve in many foreign militaries.
