The F-4E, which took off on its maiden flight on June 30th 1967, became the leading Phantom model, with 1,389 planes built. The first F-4E was delivered to the Air Force in October 1967. The Air National Guard received its first F-4E in 1985, the Air Force Reserve in 1987. This model, with an additional fuselage fuel tank, leading-edge slats for increased maneuverability, and an improved engine, also has an internally mounted 20mm multibarrel gun with improved fire-control system. 

  The F-4E was different from earlier models in that it has an integral cannon, as well as improved systems that give it an added edge in air-to-air and air-to-ground operations. Since conventional wisdom held that the combination of high-speed and sophisticated systems would eliminate classic close-in dogfighting, the Navy’s F-4B and the Air Force’s F-4C and -D fighters were not configured with internally mounted guns. Initial tactics used by US pilots to try and turn with enemy aircraft had been relatively unsuccessful, and it had become apparent that missiles in use at that time were relatively unreliable at long ranges. Pilot training and revised tactics were ultimately employed to blunt the threat and use US aircraft to an advantage, but the lack of maneuverability and a gun for close-in combat became issues for the Air Force -- solved by the F-4E.
