Most noticeable is an account of the F-14's first use in combat in the downing of two Libyan Su-22s over the Gulf of Sidra. Detail and Scale was fortunate in getting Lt. Larry Muczynski, one of the pilots who downed the Su-22s, to write, in his own words, his account of he Libyan incident. Other new features include coverage of the TARPS reconnaissance pod, more coverage of F-14 weapons, color photos of the open cannon bay, more cockpit photos, and an update of the new models. General details are shown in a walk around, while specific coverage is given to the landing gear, intakes, external fuel tanks, engines, glove vanes, tail hook, ejection seat, cockpits, cannon, and armament, Five new 1/72nd scale drawings are also included.
