Intrepid Sea, Air and Space MuseumThe F-14 Tomcat was the Navy's first-line fighter from 1972-2006. In full forward-sweep position, its distinctive variable-geometry wings provide the lift needed to slow-speed flight essential for carrier landings. In swept-back position, the wings blend into the aircraft, giving the F-14 Tomcat a dart-like silhouette for supersonic flight at speeds up to 1,544 mph (2,485 kmp) and heights more than 50,000 feet (15,239 meters). Powerful on-board targeting systems allow a Tomcat's two-seat crew of pilot and radar intercept officer to simultaneously fire up to six Phoenix missiles at six different targets at ranges exceeding 100 miles (161 km)! For close-in action, F-14;s typically carry shorter-ranged Sidewinder and Sparrow missiles in addition to a 20mm M61 cannon.
