"Top Gun" F-14A vs A-4F


 The Grumman F-14 supersonic boarded fighter Tomcat was the icon of US Navy aviation during the 1980s and 1990s. Easily recognizable by the variable geometry wings and by its two-seater configuration, the "Tomcat" offered extraordinary operational performance. Thanks to its two General Electric engines with afterburner it could reach the maximum speed of Mach 2.34. It was armed with a 20 mm M61 Vulcan cannon and could employ, in addition to the more conventional AIM-9 Sidewinder and AIM-7 Sparrow, the AIM-54 Phoenix long-range missiles. The best pilots of the US Navy's "Fighter Squadron" took part in fighting specialization courses at the famous Fighter Weapon School known as "Top Gun".
