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.

Strike Fighter Squadron 211 (VFA-211), nicknamed the “Fighting Checkmates”, is an aviation unit of the United States Navy established in 1945. n 1975, VF-211 transitioned to the F-14A Tomcat, deploying with Carrier Air Wing Nine in April 1977 aboard USS Constellation. The squadron completed numerous WESTPAC deployments aboard USS Constellation during the 1970s and 1980s. The squadron is based at Naval Air Station Oceana and is equipped with the Boeing F/A-18E/F Super Hornet.
