good questions, but right now I am concentrating at the air battle. Like what if these two planes met each other upstairs

Tomcat all the way on everything from putting Winders up somone else
tailpipe to slashing from 100km with a Phoenix, slamming Sparrow on to
hopeless ill trained opponet, taking nice pics while still packing heat,
being able to hose opponet with a nasty 20mm cannon and lastly dropping
JDAM's and other gifts that will hurt big time and land on moving airfield at sea.

As Chronoserpent implied, it really depends on the pilot and the general maintenance level of the bird. Neither plane is that much older than the other, and both are presently slated for retirement from the air wings of the US. The F-15 by the F-22, and the F-14 by the F/A-18 and the F-35 STOVL.

I think the F-14 had a great career as a versatile attack fighter, and was a great Air-to-Air bird. It was supersonic and high maneuverability.
The F-15 on the other hand was a truely "fixed-wing" bird, but still an impressive aircraft.

If I had to pick just one, I'd go with the F-14.

Hes saying that F-14s are needed for fleet defense, saying that the DDGs and CGs would be overwhelmed.
