The Grumman F-14 Tomcat is a twin-engine, variable sweep wings capable of supersonic flight. The aircraft is crewed by a Pilot and a Radar Intercept Officer who share the tasks of navigation, Navy and the Islamic Republic of Iran Air Force only. The name “Tomcat” is said to come from the call-sign used by Vice Admiral Thomas Connolly which conformed to the USN tradition of giving Grumman aircraft feline names.

The first 2 of 79 Grumman F-14 Tomcats were delivered to Iran in January 1976. Along with the aircraft Iran also received 284 AIM-54A Phoenix missiles. In 1980 an eight year war broke out between Iraq and Iran where the F-14s played a major role in Iran winning the air war. Iran’s top F-14 pilot scored 11 victories. Later in an effort to extend the life of the F-14 aircraft under went a modernization program (MA).
