The Phantom X-19 is a twin-seat, twin-engine stealth strike fighter aircraft, used by G.I. Joe's top-secret U.S. Air Force support squadron. The Phantom's purpose is to strike and destroy Cobra targets of interest. It is the preferred aircraft of the G.I. Joe pilot known as "Ghostrider".
The Phantom is armed with twin Sparrow missiles, laser-guided bombs, and twin machine guns. Despite its lower series number, it is a successor to the Conquest X-30.
The current version is the X-19B Stealth Fighter. The frame has been expanded and four seats added.
The name X-19 was secretly re-designated from the publicly-known Curtiss-Wright X-19.
