The F-4E variant was an improved version of the C/D with an elongated nose and compact radar. These two things made it possible to install a 20mm M61A1 6 barrel 640 round Vulcan gun pod in the nose. The F-4E was the most produced variant with 1387 aircraft being made over its 12 year production period. The ā€œEā€ also equipped more air forces than any other variant of the Phantom II.

On December 21, 2016 the USAF officially ended the use of the McDonnell Douglas QF-4E Phantom II when it was used to make a final fly-pass at Holloman AFB. The QF-4E had replaced the QF-106 that had previously been used by the 53rd WEG (Weapons Evaluation Group) / 82nd ATRS (Aerial Targets Squadron). The F-4 has been in service with the U.S. military since 1963 and was the primary multi-role aircraft through the 190s and 70s. The QF-4 provides a realistic full-scale target for air-to-air weapons system evaluation, development and testing.
