Ace Combat is an arcade-style combat flight simulation video game franchise published by Bandai Namco Entertainment. The Ace Combat franchise emphasizes fast-paced action and dramatic plots with semi-realistic gameplay; for example, aircraft have flight dynamics controls and can stall, but are also able to carry dozens of missiles in hammerspace. One of the main selling points of the series is the ability to pilot a range of aircraft that include accurate or slightly modified representations of modern military aircraft, prototypes that were never adopted (or even built) in real life, and fictional boss-type superweapons.
The Grumman F-14 Tomcat is an American carrier-capable supersonic, twin-engine, two-seat, twin-tail, all-weather-capable variable-sweep wing fighter aircraft. The Grumman F-14 Tomcat, designed to accommodate the formidable long-range AIM-54 Phoenix missile, took its maiden flight on December 21, 1970. Gaining widespread recognition through the Hollywood film Top Gun, the F-14 assumed the role of the primary maritime air superiority fighter for the US Navy, replacing the F-4 Phantom II. Featuring a variable geometry wing, the F-14 could sweep back for high-speed supersonic intercepts and forward for enhanced positioning in air-to-air dogfights. Affectionately nicknamed "Bombcat," the F-14 transitioned to an air-to-ground role later in its career, equipped with the Low Altitude Navigation and Targeting Infrared for Night (LANTIRN) system.
The final variant of the F-14 was the F-14D Super Tomcat, first delivered in 1991. As with the F-14B, the F-14D was equipped with the F110-GE-400 engines. It also included newer digital avionics systems including a glass cockpit and replaced the AWG-9 with the newer AN/APG-71 radar. Other systems included the Airborne Self Protection Jammer (ASPJ), Joint Tactical Information Distribution System (JTIDS), SJU-17(V) Naval Aircrew Common Ejection Seats (NACES), and Infrared search and track (IRST). A total of 37 new aircraft were completed, and 18 F-14A models were upgraded to D-models, designated F-14D(R) for a rebuild. Starting in 2005, some F-14Ds received the ROVER III upgrade.
This JC Wings model is replica of F-14D Tomcat “Pumpkin Face” from the Ace Combat flight simulation video game.
Like other JC Wings models, this F-14D showcases meticulously engraved panel lines, antennas, surface details, an operable canopy, and a detailed cockpit with authentic instrumentation. The aircraft features genuine squadron markings. Adjustable elements encompass deployable speed brakes, independently movable stabilators, twin rudders with mobility, and swing-wings that can articulate through their full range of motion.
This F-14D is a great addition to your diecast aircraft collection.
