Description

The ideas behind the Grumman F - 14 Tomcat first began to take shape back in the late 1950's when it was discovered that the Soviet Union was quickly developing an increasingly accurate airborne missile system that would pose a major threat to the U.S. Navy's warships. Entering service in 1974 with VF - 1 and VF - 2 on U.S.S. Enterprise, the F - 14 was one of the most sophisticated, reliable and deadly aircraft of its day.

 

In this book, the author looks at the development and evolution of the F - 14 and its subsequent operational history with the U.S. Navy, including encounters with Soviet - made Libyan MiG fighters over the Mediterranean as well as the 1991 Gulf War, the war in Afghanistan and the 2003 Iraq war. The book also looks at the sale of the F -1 4 to the Shah of Iran.

 

( ... ) ..., this book will give the reader an insight into one of the most iconic aircraft of its day.
