The Grumman F-14 Tomcat is regarded as one of the finest air superiority fighters in the world. Designed for carrier operations to protect the fleet from incoming hostile aeroplanes, the Tomcat is fast, manoeuvrable and well armed. Capable of flying at over Mach 2 its swing wing enables it to operate safely from carrier decks.
The author tells the full story of this remarkable aeroplane from the design, development and operational life of the F-14 to the political gameplay that surrounded its beginnings. Illustrated with over 150 photographs, Grumman F-14 Tomcat is a fine addition to the Crowood Aviation Series.
