US Navy Fighters 97 kicks off the campaign with President Richard Milhaus Nixon announcing Operation Linebacker.
And then it's over to you, strapped into the F4J (with guns) and ready to rock'n'roll! If you want a tad more authenticity you can fly the F-4B which had no guns. Be warned though the AIM-7 Sparrows and AIM-9B Sidewinders are dumbed down from their usual sim efficiency. This is to give you a taste of their actual performance (hits and misses ) in combat at the time (a fairly dismal record).. Drop the flaps, burner on and HAUL the beast over the top.

This MiG is about to meet Marx! ... maybe ... With his burner on he's a pretty good target for the AIM-9 unless he hauls it past the sun in which case the missile will lose lock.
