Présentation de l'éditeur

The American manufactured F-4 Phantom II was used by the Israelis in air-to-ground missions, as an attack aircraft, and air-to-air missions as a fighter. Despite performing both roles with equal success the Israeli reliance on the Mirage III and Nesher delta fighters meant that the F-4 was used most regularly in its air-to-ground role. The kill total of the Israeli F-4 community was, consequently, a modest 116.5; significantly lower than that of other Israeli aircraft types in service between 1969 and 1982. A handful of aces were, nevertheless, created and, using first hand accounts, this unique book tells their stories.
Many F-4 pilots had previously flown the Mirage III but most of the navigators were either inexperienced flying school graduates or had been transferred from transport aircraft. The decision to create such teams may have appeared an odd one and it certainly led to a number of interesting experiences but proved, ultimately, to be so successful that by 2010 the Israeli air force will have more two-seat combat aircraft than single-seat fighters. The F-4 experience was, therefore, crucial to moulding the future of the Israeli air force.

Great complementary to your aviation library! 6 juin 2005
Par Efim Sandler - Publié sur
Format: Broché
Really rare and hard to find data on Israeli Phantom kills, covering every kill (many in details). Many non-seen before photos and exceptional color profiles.

The information that presented in the book is the Israeli look on the Phantom air-to-air combat results. It is not a traditional ace by ace coverage, but more chronological victory by victory account, grouped by squadrons.

There is also a very, very brief biography of ace pilots (not the navigators).

The problem is - the Osprey book format (96pp), there is so much information, photos and details to be covered, that 96 pages are simply not enough. To compensate this, the photos are shrunk and the text is very compact. I could wish more exceptional photos to be included, as I've seen some in different sources.

Bottom line, I will suggest this book to every aviation enthusiast, who deals with Middle East aviation warfare.

Good combat history; short on technical details 1 juin 2009
Par Robert K. Vincent - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Israeli F-4 Phantom II Aces, by Shlomo Aloni, offers superb combat narratives, photography, and other illustrations of one of the most important warplanes in history. For anyone interested in modern Israeli military history and/or the F-4 in particular, this is a "must have" volume.

However, I would offer two criticisms. One, I would have liked to have seen more technical data/history on the F-4s used by Israel, so as to be able to put their combat use in greater perspective. Along with this, I would have liked to have seen a description of the "Kurnass 2000" upgrade program; this type is mentioned repeatedly, but just what the upgrade consisted of is not described in any detail.

I understand that this volume primarily concerns "combat aces" - i.e., the men who flew the planes and their exploits - rather than the airplane itself. However, while "war stories" are fascinating, it is rare that I have seen comparable histories involving other aircraft that are as devoid of technical treatment of the aircraft in question as this work is.

ive seen military reports more interesting 30 octobre 2009
Par panther - Publié sur
Format: Broché
i got this being interested in the combat history of the phantom and its abilities against soviet fighters,also in wishing to read about how it faired against them when they did not have crippling ROE working against them like in vietnam.I was very very board reading it as its hole text just one sleep inducing jumble of numbers.The decsriptions of the air fights is very brief and usually is SUCH AND SUCH GOT THEIR 3RD MIG KILL ETC ETC.The pictures are good and the plates are acceptable but thats not good enough if the bulk of the text is boring,hence the one star.
