While Irl I believe the F-4 was designed as a interceptor to rely more on missiles. Unless The newer models of it all have the internal gun correct? All the old ones could use the pod maybe at reduced speed, or autonomy?
The US Air Force put guns on their Phantoms from the E and onwards(and took them back off for the Wild Weasel), the US Navy never did and instead got gud. I don't think any of the Phantoms in game use the SUU-23/A gunpod but all are modelled with the ugly bulge for the gun. I'm not sure how good this mount was but I expect it was as accurate as any other.
The issue is that the Vulcan being the super good OP plz nerf laser cannon is ridiculous. The F-4s shouldn't be as deadly as they are but neither should anything else.
