COBI-5811 F-14A Tomcat Top Gun block set


The Grumman F-14 TOMCAT is an American carrier-based supersonic fighter. Its distinguishing feature is the variable geometry of the wings. The fighter was developed and produced by Grumman Corporation. It was intended to defend the fleet by gaining air superiority. It was also used for tactical reconnaissance. Later modifications made it possible to carry bombs intended for ground strikes. The F-14 entered service with the United States Navy in 1972. The main user was the United States. Seventy-nine machines were exported to Iran in 1976, some of which are still in use today. The official decommissioning of the machine from the US Navy took place on September 22, 2006. The F-14 TOMCAT fighter gained great fame not only because of its amazing appearance, variable wing geometry, but also because of his participation in the cult film TOP GUN from 1986 in which the main character of Maverick (Tom Cruise) is an F-14A TOMCAT fighter pilot!
