hesham,

Now that the NASA archives are down for who knows how long, would it be possible to have you email me a copy of this report? I am doing research on the F-4 and would like to look at it. If you respond, I will send my email address.

Yf-4e demonstrator with uprated engines and canard. Anyone have more
info on this project? Was it fly by wire? There were claims it had f-15 like performance and could turn inside an f-16.

Hesham's link is working again. I also found this:

https://www.sto.nato.int/publications/AGARD/AGARD-CP-157/AGARD-CP-157.pdf

The paper comprising chapter 12, starting on page 143 of the conference report, discusses the the SFCS (Survivable flight control system) and PACT flight programs. The PACT program is discussed on pages 155-166 of the pdf and includes performance gains from FBW, reduced stability, slats, and canards.

Just eyeballing the turning performance graph, it looks pretty similar to a graph I remember from one of the early F-15 books comparing the difference between the F-15 and the F-4.

F-4 #12200 has been a favorite aircraft of mine for some time. Here is a link to Ron Downey's Aviation Archives article on this bird.
