Description

The F-14B is the definitive version of the standard Tomcat. With an implemented swing-wing mechanism, the F-14 is notoriously large, complex, and difficult to maintain. However, its ability to target and fire BVR (Beyond Visual Range) coupled with its speed and range make it a devastating interceptor. Its agility and endurance are also very good, allowing it to dogfight easily in self-defense. While originally intended for an interceptor role, its large weapons capacity and range often had it slated out for penetration and bombing duties, something that the Tomcat took in stride.

IMPORTANT NOTES:

1) After several versions, the wing flex is finally fixed. You’ll need to turn on Advanced Tweakables (General Settings of KSP) to enable intra-vessel part collisions. KerbalJointReinforcement is practically required to make sure the aircraft stays in a somewhat intact form.
2) Link to the Fuselage Texture used for the intake: https://spacedock.info/mod/1301/W3%20Fuselage%20Texture

A mod aircraft called F-14D Super Tomcat. Built with 118 of the finest parts, its root part is NMB-F14D.

Built in the SPH in KSP version 1.7.3.
