F4 Lightning

The F-4 Lightning was the first variant of the famous Lockheed P-38 Lightning fighter aircraft to enter active service in World War II. Rather than mounting the cannon and machines guns of the legendary P-38, the weapons suite was replaced in the F-4 with four K-17 cameras for photo reconnaissance. The Lightning was easily distinguished from other aircraft by its twin fuselage configuration. The fighter was nicknamed the “Fork-tailed Devil” by German pilots.
