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 war with Iraq.
