Are you aware that the F-14 Tomcat takes a lot of fuel than the other planes and requires the most maintenance. This is an old plane that needs to be scraped!

Yes we have them too. In fact ours work unlike theirs.

They have a helmet mounted sight, what they don't say is that they can't move their head to quickly to aquire the target otherwise their system don't work.

Are you aware that a F14 can carry bigger lang range missiles (Phenix)and a really big radar because as a NAVAL fighter it may work over long ranges and need lots of power to takeoff and land on really short airstrips? It may not just have this power but actually require it all the time during take offs and landings.

Do you know that your MIG29 has a engine service overhaul life of something like 500 hours? That's about 1/2 of what the US counterparts have.

I understand this but the plane does not need to be scrapped yet.
It is a very good fighter plane and is one of the best ever to fly off of a carrier deck.

And that's what the Navy gets so it's the best in the world. Now add Phoenix missile capability and we're all set.
