US Navy F-4s and A-7s on a LORAN strike over Vietnam. Short for "Long Range Navigation", LORAN technology used multiple ground-based transmitters to communicate with aircraft's onboard systems, allowing them to fix their position and coordinate attacks. The system was employed extensively during the Linebacker campaigns, and worked exceptionally well as a poor-weather and nighttime attack aid.

The Coral Sea was on a deployment to Vietnam from 12 Nov 1971 to 17 Jul 1972. The F-4B is armed with AIM-9D Sidewinder and AIM-7 Sparrow air-to-air-missiles.
