The Iranian F-14s scored most of their kills with AIM-54A Phoenix missiles during the war with Iraq losing only one Tomcat in combat when it got cut off-guard by a MiG-21 (Pilot "Ale Agha" and Rio...??. Lost their life).
Another Tomcat was lost due to loss of control when the aircraft entered in spin (Both pilot and RIO Ejected).
