The F-14 Tomcat in Combat

"F Arba Ashara! Yalla! Yalla!" In English, that's "F-14! RUN! RUN!". A common radio call for Iraqi fighter pilots in the Eighties.

The Tomcat made its combat debut during Operation Frequent Wind, the evacuation of American citizens from Saigon, in April 1975. F-14As from Fighter Squadron 1 (VF-1) and VF-2, operating from the USS Enterprise (CVN-65), flew combat air patrols over South Vietnam to provide fighter cover for the evacuation route. Tomcats of the U.S. Navy shot down two Libyan Su-22's on 19 August 1981.

But Iranian F-14's had been blasting Iraqi MiGs out of the sky since September, 1980.
