Old Viper Tester

F-4G Test Team

Recommended Posts

Tactical Air Warfare Center Detachment 5 was stationed at George AFB operating three F-4G Wild Weasels alongside the 37th Tactical Fighter Wing and, later, the 35th TFW. The Det 5 mission was operational testing and tactics development for the Wild Weasels.

 

S/n 69-7235, the test team flagship, 1992

Note the pod in the right forward missile well.

 

In 1990 with shading on the tail characters and a 'deep' ALQ-131 in the left forward missile well.

S/n 69-7206, 1992

In 1990, here with the AGM-88 carriage adapter and the pod under the intake appears to be grey and black rather than white and black

No clue what that fixture is in the rear cockpit, it covers the area behind the seat and extends forward to the front canopy frame

Two days later and the fixture in the rear cockpit is gone

TAWC shield on the right intake and the pod. This one has the Set 5 Weasel on it instead of the checkerboard

The Det 5 weasel

Another pod. To my eyes this one does not look as blunt as the one with the weasel motif.

The pod nose one showing the slant of the pylon and off-set of the carriage assembly allowing clearance from the nose gear door. I'm guessing the forward fairing houses the umbilicals.

 

AGM-88 training round

Thanks for looking

A nod to my younger days, F-4Gs wearing the old Europe One scheme were the bees' knees with a shiny cherry on top.
