Designed by Grumman Aerospace Corporation for the US Navy, it combines the speed and manoeuvrability of a dog-fighter with the unique detection and tracking capability of the Hughes AWG-9 weapons control system.The AWG-9 track-while-scan radar gives the two-man crew of pilot and radar intercept officer the ability to track 24 enemy targets and simultaneously attack six different threats at varied altitudes and distances.The F-14's versatility is evident in its varied armament capabilities. In addition to the internally-mounted M-61A Vulcan cannon capable of firing 4,000 or 6,000 rounds a minute, the Tomcat can be equipped with any combination of three air-to-air missiles: the long-range Phoenix, the medium-range AIM Sparrow and the short-range heat-seeking Sidewinder, as well as a variety of air-to-ground ordnance.Rapid 51
