F-14A
Unit: IRIAF
Serial: 3-6047

This Tomcat was seen on several photographs or observed by foreigners underway in Iran both before and after the revolution. On one occasion, in 1986, it was seen while taking-off for a combat air patrol from Tabriz airfield (TFB.2), in northern Iran, carrying a single AIM-54A, two Sparrows, and two Sidewinders.

F-14A
Unit: 73 TFS, IRIAF
Serial: 3-6052

Not much is known about the combat service of 3-6052 either, except that it was originally assigned to the 73rd TFS, that it spent most of the war at Hor AB (TFB.7) near Shiraz, and that it was used for downing of at least one Iraqi MiG-25, in February 1986. Its final fate remains unknown.

F-14A
Unit: 72 TFS, IRIAF
Serial: 3-6063

Originally supplied to the 73rd TFS, based at Hor AB, the 3-6063 spent several years in storage before being made operational again, sometimes in the mid-1980s, and then was sent as a reinforcement to the detachment of the 72nd TFS, based at Mehrabad, where it was seen for the last time in 1987.

F-14A
Unit: IIAF/IRIAF
Serial: 3-6079

Probably the most successful Tomcat in Iranian service is 3-6079, the last F-14 delivered to Iran (the 3-6080 was held back in the USA for testing purposes when the revolution in Iran swept the Shah from power, and never delivered). Initially after delivery the aircraft was put in storage, but then returned to service with the 82nd TFS in September 1980 - still wearing the title 'IIAF' and without the national flag applied on the fin. Soon afterwards 3-6079 was used for downing of one Iraqi MiG-21 and a MiG-23.

Barely few months later, 3-6079 was seen wearing the title 'IRIAF', but still no national flag on the fin: this appears to have been applied only sometimes in late 1981 or early 1982 on this aircraft.

The markings of 3-6079 were finally 'complete' by 9 February 1988, when it was used by 1st Lt. Qiyassi for downing three Iraqi Mirage F.1EQs during two subsequent engagements within two hours.
