But with that, you would essentially get a Prowler with more ammo at the cost of ECM, and AIM-7F missiles, nothing particularly special except an acc buff on one of the salvos. CBU would be neat, for 10 points less, and perhaps make it harder for it to immediately target SAMs.

What?

Of all the US aircraft that would benefit from a change, F-4G is not one of them.

As in it would basically become a Prowler that trades speed for ECM.

I like the current F-4G with lots of ARMs which can be launched in pairs. It makes very strong the F-4G even is cat C. Even in A cat games is good but provides very unique capability of BLUEFOR and USA. Because of mechanics of WG in SEAD role would be too weak but as a tank hunter also would be too weak escept Cat C games. BTW it can't have AGM-65D because it is '80s of AGM-65 and D-2 version in RL was after 1985. In WG F-4G is per '80s unit. Only what can get is AGM-65B.

Even better, perhaps Standard + AGM-65B for 145, you'll be paying more than the Prowler and you might not have enough acc to kill a deactivated SAM, essentially a gamble plane.

Play F-4G like actual doctrine for best effect. F-4G comes in to hit what it can and suppress the others, with an F-16 following to spray clusters on the ones that managed to turn off/IR AA.

I think this would work rather well the standards for long range SAM's and the shrikes for less dangerous targets

Ditch the AIM-9Ls for the AIM-7Fs, as the former were rarely carried, and it'll be nice! Perhaps bump it up to 130 points and still plagued by low ECM.
