The Grumman F-14 TOMCAT is an American supersonic jet. Its distinguishing feature is the variable geometry of the wings. The fighter was developed and produced by the Grumman Corporation label. The assumptions were to defend the fleet through air superiority. It was also used to perform tactical reconnaissance. Later modifications allowed it to carry bombs for ground attacks. The F-14 entered service with the United States Navy in 1972. The main user was the United States. In 1976, 79 aircraft were exported to Iran, some of which are still in service today. The aircraft was officially retired from US Navy service on 22 September 2006. The F-14 TOMCAT fighter became famous not only for its amazing looks, variable wing geometry, but also for its participation in the already iconic 1986 film TOP GUN. The film's main character Maverick (Tom Cruise) is a TOMCAT F-14A fighter pilot!
