Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Different versions of the jet have provided the backbone of the frontline strength of the Iranian air force since the 1970s, and whole generations of Iranian pilots and ground personnel have been trained to fly and maintain them. Indeed, the type bore the brunt of active combat operations during the long war with Iraq. Iranian F-4 Phantom IIs were also some of best equipped examples ever exported by the USA. Some Iranian Phantom II pilots gathered immense experience on the type, flying it in combat for more than ten years. This book removes the veil of secrecy surrounding Iranian Phantom II operations since the Iran-Iraq War (1980-1988).

Synopsis:

Contents An IIAF Requirement
- Revolution Sweeps
- The Start of the War

- Thrusting into Iraq
- Fighting Over the Gulf
- Final Assaults

Synopsis:

The F-4 was the key weapon in the bloody Iran-Iraq Gulf War of the 1980s. Using numerous first-hand accounts from serving Iranian pilots involved in the War, this is a study of the aircraft, seeking to remove the veil of secrecy surrounding Iranian Phantom II operations.
