i think the skill of the pilot would come into play considering the f-14 flys at mach 1.9 and the F/A 18 flys at mach 1.8 also considering the F/A 18 seems more modern with a 20 millmeter vulcan canno with harm and maverick missles (etc.) but i think it would end up in a draw between the 2

O BOY! I have been a long time Tomcat fan so I am obviously going to have to say the F-14 Tomcat D. But unfortunately, the Tomcat has already been retired. The Navy for some reason sees the Superhornet as a 'better' inteceptor than the Tomcat! HA! But anyway, the proud Tomcat was retired in September of '06.

Either way, it still the Tomcat all the way!

The F-14 will beat the F-A/18s but by the time hitech tech reaches the hornets there won't be tomcats

It depends on a lot of things. The F-14 will beat the F/A-18 at long range because its(rather it was, it was decommissioned, in Sept. 2006) equipped with AIM-54 Phoenix missiles.

However, I would venture to say that in a dogfight, the F/A-18 would have a pretty good chance of winning considering its a bit smaller and more agile, plus a lot younger.

Lucky we don't have to worry about it unless Iran some how gets its 40 year old fleet back up and running, which isn't going to happen any time soon..................

THEORY: rapid pitch up maneuver will defeat Phoenix. The missile lacks "oomf" needed to follow agile fighters

I dont know why the us government ordered super hornets over super tomcats as the tomcat was superior in most respects
They've delivered it upside down!

I would actually have to agree with that.
