AN/APQ-120

AN/APQ-120 was operating in X-Band solid-state fire-control radar used in McDonnell Douglas F-4D/E/F/G “Phantom”. It was a pulse-Doppler radar and was developed by Westinghouse in 1967. The multi-mission radar provided the pilot and weapon systems officer target and fire control information on duel cockpit displays for both aerial combat and ground target missions.

The radar was replaced by AN/APG-66, or AN/APQ-172.
