    A picture has emerged on the Internet of an Islamic Republic of Iran Air Force F-14A after a forced landing, rumoured to be a recent event.

    A formation of five F-14A Tomcats seen over Tehran on April 18 emphasises that Iran is still managing to keep these aircraft in the air, despite total non-availability of spares from the US due to the arms embargo. Iran prides itself on having thwarted US sanctions by becoming almost self-sufficient in producing its own spares for the US types remaining in its inventory. The aircraft comprised one from the 81st Tactical Fighter Squadron (TFS), two from the 82nd TFS and one from the 83rd TFS. The 81st and 83 rd TFS also sent one spare aircraft each to Tehran. All three units reside at the 8th TFB at Esfehan.

    A number of Tomcats have recently been overhauled by the 8th Tactical Fighter Base (TFB) Tomcat Overhaul Centre at Esfahan, having been wired and the fire control system modified for compatibility with iron bombs. The upgraded ‘Bombcats’ equip the 82nd TFS.
