Most of us know that several F-14's were delivered to Iran in the early 1980's. Who knows what their current status is, as spare parts, modifications and avionics upgrades were never given to this nation by Grumman. What state are this aircraft in now? - most likely not airworthy. But the airframes are most likely very well preserved given the climate in that part of the world.
It is indeed a mystery, anyhow, here are some pics of the Iranian Air Force "Bad Kitty" as I call it. A new skin for the IRIS payware FS9 F-14A.
Nothing political here, purely historical.
