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.
What if Wargame stuck to timeframe?

USN and marines used the mk4 gun pod for air to ground straffing but never air to air

Yeah pretty sure they used in Vietnam, they had probably way more planes than they needed there and that gave more use to the F4 In that Theater I assume.
