F-14 Tomcat

An F-14 Tomcat embarked aboard USS Harry S. Truman (CVN 75) flies a combat mission in direct support of Operation Iraqi Freedom. The F-14 Tomcat is a supersonic, twin-engine, variable sweep wing fighter whose primary missions are air superiority, fleet air defense, and precision strike against ground targets. Truman and her embarked Carrier Air Wing Three (CVW-3) are conducting combat missions in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom. Operation Iraqi Freedom is the multi-national coalition effort to liberate the Iraqi people, eliminate Iraq's weapons of mass destruction, and end the regime of Saddam Hussein.
