The Grumman F-14 'Tomcat' is a supersonic, twin-engine, two-seat, variable-sweep wing fighter aircraft. The Tomcat was developed for United States Navy's Naval Fighter Experimental (VFX) program following the collapse of the F-111B project. The F-14 was the first of the American teen-series fighters which were designed incorporating the experience of air combat against MiGs during the Vietnam War.

The F-14 first flew in December 1970. It first deployed in 1974 with the U.S. Navy aboard USS Enterprise (CVN-65), replacing the McDonnell Douglas F-4 Phantom II. The F-14 served as the U.S. Navy's primary maritime air superiority fighter, fleet defense interceptor and tactical reconnaissance platform. In the 1990s it added the Low Altitude Navigation and Targeting Infrared for Night (LANTIRN) pod system and began performing precision strike mission

The F-14A was the initial two-seat all-weather interceptor fighter variant for the US Navy. It first flew on 21 December 1970. The first 12 F-14As were prototype versions (sometimes called YF-14As). Modifications late in its service life added precision strike munitions to its armament. The US Navy received 478 F-14A aircraft and 79 were received by Iran. The final 102 F-14As were delivered with improved TF30-P-414A engines. Additionally, an 80th F-14A was manufactured for Iran, but was delivered to the US Navy

The final variant of the F-14 was the F-14D Super Tomcat. The F-14D variant was first delivered in 1991. The original TF-30 engines were replaced with GE F110-400 engines, similar to the F-14B. The F-14D also included newer digital avionics systems including a glass cockpit and replaced the AWG-9 with the newer AN/APG-71 radar. Other systems included the Airborne Self Protection Jammer (ASPJ), Joint Tactical Information Distribution System (JTIDS), SJU-17(V) Naval Aircrew Common Ejection Seats (NACES) and Infra-red search and track (IRST).

"Turning? Fuck turning when I can out run you, hit you from 100km plus away, out haul you and land on a carrier. It has IRST, a huge radar and a guy in the back to give you a spare set of eyes for unmatched sensor fusion. No matter what you throw at the Tomcat it can find a way to kill it effectively." - Nathan "Bowman" Webber - Swart Katte Flight

"Much like Marlon Brando, the F-14's greatest weaknesses are its own size and cost." - David "Uno" Peled

"and much like Marlon Brando the F-14 is fucking awesome." - Nathan "Bowman" Webber - Swart Katte Flight

"The last days of the F-14 always reminded me of Marlon Brando towards the end of his career, fat and well past his glory days, but still able to pack a punch, no matter how incohrent." - Henry "Guv" Dravot - Musketeers
