The F-14A Tomcat is a twin engine, two-seat, variable geometry carrier-based fighter aircraft developed by Grumman Aerospace Corporation.

History

Strangereal

The F-14A was employed by the naval aviation wing of various armed forces in the Strangereal world, along with the F-14B Bombcat and the advanced F-14D Super Tomcat.

Tomcats were operated by the Scarface Squadron and enemy forces during the 1995 insurrection in the Skully Islands.[1]

During the Second Usean Continental War, the F-14A was operated by Erusea and certain member-states of the ISAF's Navy. A particular operator of the aircraft was the Mobius Squadron, which employed such jets in carrier operations through the course of the war.[2]

F-14As were operated by the Yuktobanian Navy and the Osean Maritime Defense Force, and were commonly deployed during the attacks on Osea and the invasion of Yuktobania in the Circum-Pacific War. Various squadrons operating from aircraft carriers as the OFS Kestrel, including Marcus Snow's VFA-206 launched in defensive missions during the attack on Port St. Hewlett and the maritime retreat to the Eaglin Straits, where many of them were destroyed by the Scinfaxi's ballistic missile attack.[3]

Yuktobanian Tomcats were among the escorts of the cargo aircraft involved in the exodus from southern Yuktobania after the seizure of the Bastok Peninsula. Towards the end of the conflict, abandoned F-14As from the Kestrel's deceased flight crews were obtained by the Wardog Squadron, becoming their flagship aircraft as the Razgriz Squadron during their campaign against the Grey Men.[3]

Infinity timeline

In the Ace Combat Infinity universe, the F-14A Tomcat design was acquired by Wernher and Noah Enterprises following the Ulysses Disaster and was later mass-produced by the company's Advanced Automated Aviation Plant systems along with the advanced Super Tomcat. The model produced by the company was a hybridized model with Super Tomcat features, adopting the AN/AAS-42 IRST pod and the AAX-1 TV tracking system - never used by actual -A models - while omitting the supersonic glove vanes of early-model aircraft.

Game analysis

Ace Combat Infinity

"A large, carrier-based fighter intended to take over from the F-4 as principle fleet air defense. It has variable wings that can automatically change angle even during flight, allowing for both high speed capabilities in high speed ranges and high maneuverability in low speed ranges. It is also equipped with long range missiles that can shoot down incoming enemies over a considerable distance. Known as the "Tomcat"."

Trivia

  • The Erusian F-14A color scheme is a replica color scheme of the F-14A from the US Navy NSAWC (Naval Strike and Air Warfare Center).
  • The Osean F-14A color scheme is a replica color scheme of the F-14A from the US Navy's VF-84 "Jolly Rogers".
  • The Yuktobanian F-14A color scheme is a replica color scheme of the Iranian Air Force's F-14A.
  • The F-14A Tomcat in Infinity is a possible reference to the real-life upgrade on a number of actual -A models into the F-14D Super Tomcat configuration, hence the appearance of the aircraft. However, said upgrade completely turns the A models into D models, with the newer AN/APG-71 and the GE F110 engines. The F-14A in Infinity on the other hand looked like a D model configuration with the TF30 engine instead of the F110.
