F-14 Tomcat

by

Description:
The Grumman F-14 Tomcat is a supersonic, twin-engine, two-seat, variable-sweep wing fighter aircraft. The Tomcat was developed for the United States Navy's Naval Fighter Experimental (VFX) program following the collapse of the F-111B project. The F-14 was the first of the American teen-series fighters, which were designed incorporating the experience of air combat against MiG fighters during the Vietnam War.

The F-14 first flew in December 1970 and made its first deployment in 1974 with the U.S. Navy aboard USS Enterprise (CVN-65), replacing the McDonnell Douglas F-4 Phantom II. The F-14 served as the U.S. Navy's primary maritime air superiority fighter, fleet defense interceptor and tactical aerial reconnaissance platform. In the 1990s, it added the Low Altitude Navigation and Targeting Infrared for Night (LANTIRN) pod system and began performing precision ground-attack missions.

The F-14s were used as useful interceptor by Islamic Republic of Iran Air Force during Iran Iraq war against Iraqi warplanes. Iranian F-14s reportedly shot down at least 160 Iraqi aircraft during the Iran-Iraq War, which include 58 MiG-23s, 23 MiG-21s, nine MiG-25s, 33 Dassault Mirage F1s, 23 Su-17s, one Mil Mi-24, five Tu-22s, two MiG-27s, one Dassault Mirage 5, one B-6D, one AĆ©rospatiale Super Frelon, and two unknown aircraft. While only 12 to 16 Tomcats were shot down, at least half of the losses were due to accidents.

The Tomcat was retired from the U.S. Navy's active fleet on 22 September 2006, having been supplanted by the Boeing F/A-18E and F Super Hornets. The F-14 remains in service with the Islamic Republic of Iran Air Force, having been exported to Iran in 1976, when the U.S. had amicable diplomatic relations with Iran.

Known issues:
- Cockpit is wip.
- don't save the Custom Loadout Save/Load with Other Loadout Preset like CAP 1,2,3,4. its cause of screw up the Proxy.
- HUD is from Old Thing. because gun reticle in the kimi hud is not match the real gun point. i will ask to the kimi about make the new hud for F-14D.

Its Not BUG(or maybe.)
- Vapor Trail on Wings is very normal(even your wings is folded) because vapor trail point is memory point, but mem point is not a movable.
- In Mission Editor, you can't choose the RIO Seat(Commander Slot) because Pilot is Commander.
but still you can use "moveincommander" for manual get in the RIO Seat in editor. its trick for Weapon Problem with Gunner
- Gear Damper is Activated on height 18~19m, for operate with nimitz. because arma3 damper system is very weird.
- AIM-54 Phoenix is Effective for Long Range. in close range, use Sidewinder or Sparrow. if more Closer range,Use the Vulcan.
