The F-14B Tomcat (also known as the F-14B Bombcat) is an attacker variant of the F-14A Tomcat. It made its debut in Ace Combat 5: The Unsung War.

History

Strangereal

The F-14B entered in service with the Osean Federation at some point prior to 2010. It was available to the Wardog Squadron during the Circum-Pacific War. The Bombcat also saw limited use by the Yuktobanian Air Force throughout the war, notably during the attack on Apito International Airport.[1]

Infinity universe

The F-14B was made available for United Nations Forces pilots to use during Operation Eternal Liberation as an attacker aircraft.

Game Analysis

Ace Combat Infinity

"A variant of the shipboard F-14A fighter, created via a major upgrade that includes switching out the engine.
Key improvements include resolution of engine trouble, increased propulsion, and revised avionics.
Further modifications were performed in the 90s, intended to extend the life of the aircraft and provide further air-to-surface attack capabilities. This modified F-14 is also used for high speed, long distance tactical attacks.
It is known as the "Tomcat," the same as the A type. When modified for bombing, the F-14 is unofficially also known as the "Bombcat"."

Trivia

  • The Osean color scheme is a replica color scheme from the US Navy's VF-103 "Jolly Rogers" fighter squadron.
  • The Yuktobanian color scheme is a replica experimental camouflage scheme known as the "Keith Ferris camouflage scheme". In the late 1970's a few F-14s were temporarily painted in the so-called Keith Ferris camouflage scheme. For this deceptive paint system three gray colours were applied in a serrated scheme (matte dark gray, dark gull gray and light gull gray).
