The McDonnell Douglas F-4 Phantom II is a tandem two-seat, twin-engine, all-weather, long-range supersonic jet interceptor fighter-bomber aircraft manufactured by McDonnell Douglas and designed as a carrier-based interceptor to fill the United States Navy fleet defense fighter role. The first flight of the F-4 took place on the 27th of May 1958 and it went into service on the 30th of December 1960. Despite the imposing dimensions and a maximum takeoff weight of over 60,000 lb (27,000 kg), the F-4 has a top speed of Mach 2.23 and an initial climb rate of over 41,000 ft/min (210 m/s). There were over 5,195 built between 1958 and 1981, and many are still active in service. Primary users are the United States Air Force, United States Navy and the Islamic Republic Iran Air Force. In 1965 the cost per unit was estimated to cost 2.4 million US dollars.
