The F-1A+2 Tomcat was a multi-role fighter used by the U.N. Navy prior to Space War I. The original F-14 model was manufactured by Grumman Aerospace and entered service with the United States Navy in 1974. The Tomcat’s service life was extended several times through upgrade programs, and the A+2 version implemented OverTechnology in multiple systems. The Tomcat was armed with a Gatling gun and could carry various types of missiles. By 2008, the U.N. forces were developing the VF-0A Phoenix and VF-1A Valkyrie variable fighters to replace aging conventional fighters like the Tomcat. The Tomcat’s age was evident when it proved no match against the Anti-U.N.’s new variable fighter, the SV-51α. By 2009, the U.N. forces began the wide scale deployment of the VF-1A at bases around the world and in its space fleet.
