The Islamic Republic of Iran Air Force was the new title given to the Imperial Iranian Air Force in the early 1980s. The IIAF aquired the F-14A Tomcat from the United States in 1976 making it the only foreign power to operate the aircraft. The Khatami Air Base was constructed specifically for the F-14 although poor relations between the US and Iran eventually led to an arms embargo being imposed, which cut off the supply of spare parts for the both the aircract themselves and the potent AIM-54 Phoenix missiles they carry.

Grumman F-14A Tomcat

Designed to carry the formidable long range AIM-54 Phoenix missile, the Grumman F-14 Tomcat was first flown on December 21st, 1970. Made famous by the Hollywood film Top Gun, the F-14 replaced the F-4 Phantom II as the US Navy's primary maritime air superiority fighter. Its design includes a variable geometry wing that can sweep back for high speed supersonic intercepts and forward for improved positioning in air to air dogfights. Nicknamed "Bombcat," the F-14 spent much of its late career in an air-to-ground role, carrying the Low Altitude Navigation and Targeting Infrared for Night (LANTIRN) system.
