    DescriptionDesigned to improve on the F-4 Phantom's air combat performance, the Tomcat entered service in 1974 with the US Navy, replacing the F-4 Phantom II. The F-14 had its first kills on 19 August 1981 over the Gulf of Sidra and went on to serve in Operation Desert Storm, Operation Enduring Freedom over Afghanistan and Operation Iraqi Freedom. In this book, Tony Holmes tells the story of this fascinating aircraft which still serves in Iran's Air Force today, and was the largest and heaviest US fighter to ever fly from an aircraft carrier.
