The first variant of Cold War's most iconic fighter, the F-4B Phantom II quickly left its mark in aviation history with its high performance, advanced systems and armament capabilities! The SWS Phantom captures this experience with its in-depth, high fidelity simulation of the aircraft, bringing it up-to-date with deep systems, TacPack compatibility and full PBR materials

Notice: this version is for Prepar3D v4.5 HF2 or later! If you are looking for the FSX-compatible version, that is F-4B Phantom II (Legacy)

Delivery Method

Compatibility: P3Dv4 PBR, P3Dv5

Special Requirement Content


Feel the thrill of operating from an aircraft carrier, learn the intricacies of your aircraft and use your weapons against enemies in the air and on the ground! The SWS F-4B/N Phantom II is the definitive simulation of the iconic F-4B Phantom II! This exciting rendition contains:

  • Detailed model variants covering the aircraft’s history from the 1950s to the 1970s
  • Cockpits variants for the different eras!
  • Sleek loadout manager
  • Customizable exteriors
  • Deep flight and systems modeling, different for each aircraft
  • TacPack ready out-of-the-box!

Owners of the previous version of the Phantom: this version can be installed without previously uninstalling the old product. As Coral Sea is not included, this is the recommended method of installation to maintain your carrier as well.


Hundreds of pictures were used to capture and animate every detail of the Phantom. Nose-to-tail and tip-to-tip, the SWS F-4B is the most accurate and detailed representation of the F-4 Phantom. Contained in the package:

  • 19 carefully researched liveries, showing the flamboyant schemes of the 60's and 70's. Subtle details such as patches and weathering give the impression of a used, but still fresh aircraft!
  • High detail virtual cockpits, different for the early and late era.


Detailed systems that realistically simulate the aircraft have been created based on manuals, research material and real pilot input:

  • Two sets of aircraft systems reflecting the operational differences between the early production phantoms vs the later models.
  • Simulation of advanced systems such as Air Data Computer, Aileron-Rudder interconnect, INS, Autopilot, including the differences between older and newer airframes
  • From take-off and landing, to adverse yaw & turn performance, we have strived to capture the F-4 Phantom’s flight performance and quirks!
  • Adjustable cockpit lighting using Prepar3D's PBR materials and realistic RADAR and RWR displays offering great immersion with no FPS impact (courtesy of MilViz)


The F-4 Phantom comes equipped with a fully working RADAR and RWR suite working exactly like its real counterpart. Use the Phantom’s RADAR modes and features to swat enemies off the sky, following realistic procedures and feeling what it was like to be a RIO in the mighty Phantom! A weapons & loadout manager allows you to load your aircraft with a wide assortment of weapons, from fuel tanks to A/A missiles to bombs!

The aircraft is also TacPack ready out of the box, so VRS TacPack owners will be able to use the F-4’s weapons systems to attack air and ground targets in P3D!
