The Grumman F-14 Tomcat was designed through the VFX program by the American Grumman company in the 1960s, with first flight December 1970. It was a supersonic, twin-engine, variable sweep wing, two-place fighter designed for the US Navy to attack and destroy enemy aircraft at night and in all weather conditions. Capable of carrier operations, the F-14 could track up to 24 targets simultaneously with its advanced weapons control system and attack six with Phoenix AIM-54A missiles while continuing to scan the airspace. Armament also includes a mix of other air intercept missiles, rockets and bombs. Being a 2-seater which is not standard for a fighter,  the navigator and weapons specialist concentrates on weapons deployment while the pilot focusses on flying. The wings are designed for automatic variable sweep during flight, with a manual override provided. The max speed is about MACH 1.88. It was the best fighter available to the US NAVY although is was very expensive. Some aircraft were sold to Persia during the Sjah regime, later operated by the Islamic air force of Iran.

Many scale models exist of the Grumman F-14 Tomcat, too much to list here! In 1/72 scale the Fujimi and Hasegawa kits are fine. In 1/32 scale there was the expensive Tamiya, the much cheaper Revell kit and later Trumpeter released a kit.
