F-14A
Unit: IIAF
Serial: 3-6001

Circa 1977. The first F-14A built for Iran was used for a relatively short period of time by the IIAF before being put in storage, at Khatami AB, where it remained for a number of years. In 1981 the IRIAF refurbished the aircraft and brought it back into operational condition with the help of parts supplied clandestinely by the US government, and the aircraft was to participate in a number of air combats over the next several years.

F-14A
Unit: IRIAF
Serial: 3-6020

3-6020 is the first F-14A known to have fired an AIM-54A against an Iraqi MiG-25: this engagement happened on 15 May 1981, and the Phoenix caused only slight damage in turn causing the Iraqi (or Soviet?) Foxbat-pilot to escape back towards his base at 2.800km/h.

F-14A
Unit: IRIAF
Serial: 3-6022

This Tomcat is best known for having been used to shot down two Iraqi MiG-23 interceptors with a single AIM-54A missile, on 21 July 1982, in an engagement half-way between Baghdad and the Iranian border, after its crew ignored the order not to enter the Iraqi airspace at any cost.

F-14A
Unit: IRIAF
Serial: 3-6024

The 3-6024 became famous already early in its career, while still in service with the IIAF: it was one of two Tomcats that intercepted a Soviet MiG-25RBS high over the Caspian Sea, in October 1978, and tracked it for two minutes as the Soviet pilot was giving his best to escape.

F-14A
Unit: 72 TFS, IRIAF
Serial: 3-6027

The 3-6027 is known to have been used early during the war, foremost by the detachment of the 72nd TFS (a unit otherwise equipped with F-4Ds from late 1980), deployed to Mehrabad AB, were a handful of Tomcats were stationed for use in training, testing and sometimes also for the defence of the Iranian capital.

F-14A
Unit: 81 TFS, IRIAF
Serial: 3-6032

This Tomcat was one of the several examples known to have changed the squadron during the war: while initially assigned to the TFB.7, after becoming one of the first F-14s to be completely overhauled in Iran, from 1986 it was assigned to the 81st TFS, and is known to have been used for downing of an Iraqi MiG-23, in January 1987. 3-6032 is shown with a war-load of two AIM-54As and four AIM-9Ps, a configuration frequently used when interceptions of such targets were expected, like MiG-25s, Tu-16s or Tu-22s. In such case, namely, the IRIAF crews tried to keep the weight of their aircraft low in order to save fuel needed for high-speed pursuit.
