Royal Air Force and Royal Navy

 The Royal Navy took charge of just 29 Phantom FG.1 
 which is a rebuilt F-4J version for the RN also 
 designated F-4K, instead of the initial order 
 for 143 F-4Ks! 

 These were operated from the sole carrier 
 HMS "Ark Royal", and later transferred to 
 the RAF. The RAF received 116 production Phantom
 FGR.2s operated in the interception, fighter/
 bomber and recce role. The last delivery of 
 Phantoms comprised the F-4J(UK), an ex-US Navy 
 F-4J, of which the RAF purchased 15 machines 
 for interception tasks.
