In the late 1960s the US Navy identified a requirement for a new carrier-based fighter, known originally as the VFX. Five aerospace companies received requests for proposals in June 1968 and the submissions of Grumman and McDonnel Douglas were selected for final consideration. In early 1969 Grumman's proposal was chosen for development and production (under the designation F-14A) and given the name Tomcat.
