The F-104G was known as the Super Starfighter, with the G standing for Germany, because they
were among the first foreign orders for the Lockheed plane and they placed the largest order.
Depending on the source there were between 1,122 and 1,700 G models built under license by 4
European companies, Canadair and Lockheed. The G was a multi-role all weather single seat
fighter-bomber with a new upward firing ejection seat, a strengthened fuselage and wings,
increased internal fuel capacity, new improved full length flaps added to the wings leading edge
for better combat maneuvering, a larger vertical fin, a new radar system with air-air and air-
ground modes, inertial navigation that made the F-104G the first production fighter to receive this
new equipment, new infrared sight, an additional hard-point under each wing, improved weapons
capability now was 4,000 lbs and beefed up landing gear and larger wheels to carry all the added
weight of the improvements. The larger gear and wheels made it necessary to create a bulge in
the fuselage to accommodate them. The G even received a new engine, though it didn’t deliver
any more power it was a much more reliable engine. The G was considered the best version of
Lockheed TF-104G 61-3028 was delivered to the Turkish Air Force under the MAP (Military
Assistance Program) in 1963. It was one of six TF-104Gs that were newly built and delivered
directly from either Lockheed or Canadair and assigned to 4AJU at Murted. The aircraft
eventually went to 9AJU Balikesir AB and was in service until 1987 when it was withdrawn from
service and stored at Eskisehir until it was scrapped in 1989. Turkey had acquired over 400
Starfighters and retired the last F-104 in 1995.
