This is a detailed Comparison chart, from Brad Jones, showing the specs of the F-4B, F-4J, and RA-5C Vigilante.

Just to make you aware, at the bottom of your RA-5C Table is the statement, "Please Note: These specs are for the fighter version, not the Recon Version which may be faster".

Rather than "fighter version" it should be "attack version".

Also, I have attached the RA-5C Vigilante Specs. The source is "Tonkin Gulf Yacht Club" by Rene J. Francillon, 1988, Naval Institute Press, Annapolis, Maryland, ISBN 0-87021-696-1.
I have found very little about any of his works that I can dispute.

Hope this helps.
