The F-14 Tomcat is a supersonic, twin-engine, variable sweep wing, two-place fighter designed to attack and destroy enemy aircraft at night and in all weather conditions. F-14 can track up to 24 targets simultaneously with its advanced weapons control system and attack six with Phoenix AIM-54A missiles.
On August 19, 1981, while flying a Combat Air Patrol over the Gulf of Sidra, two VF-41 aircraft, callsigns "Fast Eagle 102" and "Fast Eagle 107" were intercepted then fired upon by two Libyan Su-22 Fitters. The two F-14's were able to manoeuvre into firing positions and then downed both Fitters. The incident marked the first time the F-14 had been used in air to air combat, the first Navy air combat since the end of the Vietnamese War and the worlds' first engagement between variable geometry (swing wing) fighters.
