The USAF would acquire 583 F-4Cs that were basically F-4Bs retrofitted for ground operations.
The F-4C arrived in Southeast Asia in early 1965 and by 1966 equipped 7 squadrons in Vietnam
and 3 in Thailand. The early F-4Cs lacked guns and relied totally on missiles but it wasn’t long
before the addition of SUU-16A gun pods with M-61AI-20-mm guns were put to use to
compensate for the lack of internal guns. The first F-4Cs suffered from many defects and It wasn’
t too long before the F-4D made an appearance.

McDonnell Douglas manufactured the F-4H for the USN and when the USAF saw the great
performance they want the aircraft as well. Two USN F-4H-1 Phantom IIs; serial 149405 and
149406 were delivered to Langley Field for evaluation and re-serialled 62-12168 and 62-12169.
In 1962 approval was given for the USAF variant to be designated the F-110 Spectre. Later to
clear up confusion of the different designations both designs were named Phantom II. The USN
variant became the F-4B while the USAF variant became the F-4C.
