Hans Robben Can't know everything but F-4's are my 'thing' !

The double extension nose gear is unique to the British FG.1 variant for use on the Royal Navy carriers. Something to do with requiring a higher AoA in order to take-off. They had to water cool the jet blast deflectors to cope with the extra power and heat. When the FG.1 were deployed on the American USS Saratoga they destroyed the deck with their afterburners, subsequent take-offs were only performed 'dry' and with limited weight.

One other not well known feature of the FG.1 that it is in fact 6" shorter than the FGR.2: they had to reduce the length of the a/c to fit the british carrier lifts. So they cut 6" of the fuel dump post at the tail and the nose including the radar unit could swing to the right in order to fit the lifts. Even then the clearance was only a foot in front and back. I have never been able to verify that though. Any brits with a F-4K, F-4M and a tape measure in the house? ;)

Hans Robben And a wealth of info regarding F-4s can be found here:

No mention of the fact that the FG.1 is shorter on this site though.
