By the autumn of 2001, the venerable F-14 Tomcat had been developed into a truly multi-role fighter-bomber thanks to the aircraft's awesome load-carrying capacity, legendary long range and the advent of a bolt-on targeting sensor pod for precision bombing. Although, by then, the F-14 was far from being in the flush of youth, it was given more mission tasking than any other aircraft embarked in a US carrier. Having successfully evolved into the ß Bombcat' over the previous decade, the F-14 went on to play a pivotal role in the US military's 'War on Terror' from 2001 through to its retirement in 2006. Indeed, its contribution in Operations Enduring Freedom (2001-02) and Iraqi Freedom (2003-06) meant that the aircraft approached phasing out from US Navy fleet service with its claws well and truly bared.
