The Wild Weasel was derived from the Project Wild Weasel. The Wild Weasel is an aircraft designed to identify, locate and physically suppress or destroy ground-based enemy air defense systems. By 1975, the F-4G Phantom became the Wild Weasel. The F-4G saw combat during the Gulf War and was reported to have only lost a single aircraft. After the Gulf War, the George AFB aircraft were assigned to the Air National Guard at Boise, ID. In 1991, the F-4G Phantom Wild Weasel was deployed in Operation Desert Storm in Iraq and its EW System had been upgraded to an AN/APR-47 configuration.
This handcrafted model is painted in the same paint scheme as the original and is painstakingly built from Philippine mahogany by our skilled craftsmen. Perfect as a gift for any aviation enthusiast and history buff!
