Starting in 1973 the Japan Air Self-Defense Force received 154 F-4EJ 
Phantoms that were based on the USAF F-4E. 138 of these aircraft were 
manufactured under license by Mitsubishi who produced the last F-4 Phantom 
II several changes were made to the F-4E to make it an F-4EJ. Basically it 
had any offensive weapons removed but eventually these restrictions were 
lifted and the aircraft were updated with missiles and the latest electronic 

The J.A.S.D.F 8th SQ, 3rd AW are stationed at Misawa Air Base, Aomori 
Prefecture, Honshu and was one of two Japanese squadrons stationed there. 
The squadron is known as the “Black Panthers”. Misawa Air base was built in 
1938 and is the only joint service installation in the western Pacific region for 
both Japanese and American military services. It is home to more than 
20,000 American and Japanese military personnel and their families. Misawa 
is also the headquarters for the JASDF Northern Air Defense Force.

Specifications for the F-4E Phantom II / F-4EJ

They are virtually identical except for the restricted equipment:
This included removal of the in-flight refueling receptacle that was later 
retrofitted, no leading edge slats, ground attack control equipment such as 
weapons and bomb delivery systems and the addition of modern electronic 
equipment including a data link system and radar warning receiver. Most or 
all this equipment was eventually reinstalled.
