What I know is that Canada was very close to purchase Iranian Tomcats, but things were stopped due to the "Argo" affair, and then, obviosuly, the Gulf War

well now...

if you followed up on your research, you'd find the "CF-188" is a Hornet, essentially an F/A-18A or B

sorry, it was a typo, IT WAS... CF-184 Super Tom Cat. Here is the website which claims that is real, though I very doubt that:

http://canadianpower.shoutwiki.com/wiki/Grumman_F-14_Tomcat

http://canadianpower.shoutwiki.com/wiki/Royal_Canadian_Navy

http://canadianpower.shoutwiki.com/wiki/VFH-855_"Wolfpack"_Heavy_Fighter_Squadron

 

It can't be true what they claim, I checked on wikipaedia and other trustable sources, but this is my favorite:

" In short, the Supercat became a world beater, a 4.5th+ Generation fighter aircraft that in exercises even defeated USAF F-15C and Indian Su-30MKI jets. It's thrust vectoring meant it was the most maneuverable carrier aircraft of the time, with Canadian Supercats even managing to outfly smaller F/A-18E/Fs and F-16C/Ds with ease. The US Navy had in fact ordered their own units as the F-14E Super Tomcat, built by Grumman but with many Canadian parts "

pure fantasy.  Most likely a "what if" history or flight sim mod.
