The F-14 Tomcat is an American supersonic, twin-engine, two-seat, variable-sweep wing fighter. It has several models in the design family.

Frank "Rainmaker" Ostreger flew one during the Gulf War in the Albatross mission to protect Dagger's IL-78.

Years later, members of Thunder Flight flew the F-14B Bombcat during Operation: Typhoon to protect the USS Andrew Jackson.

Arrow flew an F-14D Tomcat during Operation Purple Flame in the near future.


The Grumman F-14 Tomcat is a supersonic, twin-engine, two-seat, variable-sweep wing fighter aircraft. The Tomcat was developed for the 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 MiG fighters during the Vietnam War.

The F-14 first flew in December 1970 and made its first deployment 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 aerial reconnaissance platform. In the 1990s, it added the Low Altitude Navigation and Targeting Infrared for Night (LANTIRN) pod system and began performing precision ground-attack missions.
