The Grumman F-14 Tomcat is an American supersonic, twin-engine, two-seat, twin-tail, variable-sweep wing fighter aircraft. The Tomcat was developed for the United States Navy's Naval Fighter Experimental (VFX) program after the collapse of the F-111B project. The F-14 was the first of the American Teen Series fighters, which were designed incorporating air combat experience against MiG fighters during the Vietnam War. Primary Role: Interceptor, Air Superiority, And Multirole Fighter.

The Tomcat was operated by the United States Navy and the Islamic Republic of Iran Air Force only. The name “Tomcat” is said to come from the call-sign used by Vice Admiral Thomas Connolly which conformed to the USN tradition of giving Grumman aircraft feline names. VF-102 “Diamondbacks” was established on July 1, 1955 VA-36 and almost immediately re-designated VF-102. In June 1994 VF102 re-equipped with the F-14B. From September 19, 2002 until March 27, 2002 VF-102 embarked onboard the USS Theodore Roosevelt in support of “Operation Enduring Freedom”. During “OEF” VF-102 flew 5,000 combat missions, dropped 680 bombs and guided 50,000 pounds of precision guided munitions dropped by other aircraft. Returning home after 159 days at sea VF-102 began conversion to the F/A-18F. In 2003 F-14B was transferred to VF101.
