Mirage Factory F-14A and F-14B Tomcat

Mirage Factory F-14A and F-14B Tomcat


Grumman’s F-14 Tomcat could be described as the Marilyn Monroe of aircraft designs. Both were at once beautiful and flawed, with indelible public images and yet often misunderstood and misrepresented. Both also met untimely ends. For many, the aircraft will always be remembered as the star of the hit 1986 movie Top Gun, but the Tomcat was a real weapon on the front lines of the Cold War, personifying the technological prowess and advanced production methods that the Soviet Union could not match, and which eventually drove them to break their economy in the attempt to keep up. For me personally, it will always be associated with the three years my family lived in Virginia Beach, near NAS Oceana, in the early 1980s. I vividly remember all of the jets that used to fly over our house—Skyhawks, Intruders, Phantoms and especially Tomcats. With their twin tails and swing-wings they had to be the coolest things in the air, and in retrospect I believe they really were. --c5

 

This aircraft is dedicated to our departed friend and Cheif of Production, Oli.

I second that. Outstanding work guys :good:. Now, with the re-tiled Formosa terrain, this gives some interesting carrier campaign opportunities... :grin:

I can't wait to see the USAF version Spinners creates. :grin:

 

I keed, I kid.

 

This is a wondrous beast! Took it up on the (old) range for a shakedown, then quickly cobbled it into a campaign. A real

treat, and very nicely done!

 

Many thanks to the very talented Mirage Factory crew...

 

:good:

Pretty cool ride thanks guys! Hey, Spinners, we do need an Iranian skin (for the A model). Considering that the Iranians where the most successful users of this AC in air to air combat. Oh almost forgot, how do you operate the radar?
