This first book of our two volume publication on the F-4K (FG.1) and F-4M (FGR.2) in Royal Navy and Royal Air Force service covers the design, development and service introduction of the Phantom. The publication finishes with the decommissioning of HMS Ark Royal and the handover of the FG.1 to the RAF, as well as the change in roles of Phantom equipped RAF squadrons from 'ground attack/strike' to 'air defence' in 1978.
