Since the early 1970s the Soviet Union had been sending MiG-25 over flights to Iran who was unable to stop this using their F-4s. In January 1974 Iran ordered 30 F-14 Tomcats with another 50 in June 1974. In January 1976 the first two aircraft arrived with 10 more by May 1977 along with Phoenix missiles which put an end to Soviet over flights. F-14A Tomcat 160339/3-6041 was purchased from the Czech Air Force in 1995 and had Czech markings painted over and Polish markings added but the camo scheme remained unchanged.Opening canopy

The Grumman F-14 Tomcat is a twin-engine variable sweep wing aircraft capable of supersonic flight. The aircraft is crewed by a Pilot and a Radar Intercept Officer (RIO) who share the tasks of navigation, target acquisition, ECM, and weapons use. The Tomcat was only operated by the United States Navy and the Republic of Iran Air Force. The name “Tomcat” is said to come from the call-sign used by Vice Admiral Thomas Connolly, which conformed to the U.S Navy tradition of giving Grumman aircraft feline names.
