The Grumman F-14 Tomcat is an iconic aircraft. Its historical significance, celebrity, distinctive appearance, and combat record set the Tomcat apart from many of its contemporaries. The U. S. Navy operated the F-14 for thirty-six years, and when it was retired in 2006, the Tomcat had never been more capable, relevant, or effective.
F-14 Tomcat in Detail & Scale is an all-new book about one of the most well known and popular military aircraft of all time. This profusely illustrated book is written by Haagen Klaus, who previously co-authored F/A-18E/F Super Hornet in Detail & Scale. The author put together a team of expert contributors who worked with him to make this the most accurate and in-depth book possible on the Tomcat. Among these are people who flew and maintained the F-14 and others who worked at Grumman during the time when the Tomcat was designed and built. In addition to these experts, many aviation photographers have contributed scores of general and detail photographs that provide extensive coverage.
Detail & Scale published two earlier books on the F-14 in 1979 and 1982. It has since published three comprehensive works on the colors and markings of the Tomcat, and this new book completes the coverage of the F-14 with all the hallmarks of the Detail & Scale Series of books.
