The ultimate "hands on" guide to flying the multi-million dollar F-14 Tomcat. The F-14 Tomcat is the world's greatest long range fighter aircraft. Equipped with ultra-long range AIM-54 Phoenix missiles, the US Navy's F-14s shield American warships from enemy aircraft. Operating from carrier decks in all weathers, the F-14 has recently extended its capabilities, serving an advanced reconnaissance platform and even as a fighter-bomber over Bosnia. This book reveals just what it feels like to fly and fight in this multi-million dollar interceptor. In a hypothetical mission in the near future, we follow an F-14 into battle, engaging enemy airplanes and ground targets with its unrivalled combination of firepower and sensor devices.
