Built by Earth Avionics in the late 80`s as a replacement for the aging F-14 Tomcat being phased out of service, the VT-1 is a single-seat, swing-wing, Air Superiority Fighter. Equipped with greatly improved Avionics, Advanced Radar Systems and a host of other upgrades, the VT-1 Supercat was the last conventional Fighter to enter military service prior to the discovery of the Solinoid threat. The VT-1 also has the distinction of being one of the first full production aircraft to feature thrust vectoring, allowing it a much greater range of manoeuvrability than earlier aircraft.
The Supercat would go on serve as a test-bed for the first Variable Geometry Fighters to be built from recovered Solinoid technology. The YVGF-14 Wildcat concept was designed on the VT-1 Air-frame, and Supercats were used extensively to test various systems destined for the VGF Development Program. It would be used to test Radar and Electronic Systems, as well as systems relating to the Transformation of the VGF in flight. In addition the VT-1 would also be used to test modifications to Flight Control Surfaces and Engine Components for the Wildcat.
During initial engagements with the Solinoids, the VT-1 would be armed with a prototype of the GAU-14 35mm Gun Pod, and early versions of the AIM-135 Wyvern HMM (High Manoeuvrability Missile) intended for eventual use on the VGF-14. The Supercat would also serve as an Advanced Pilot Training Aircraft for personnel being inducted into VGF Fighter Squadrons. A few F-14 Tomcats are also used in this role as Preliminary Trainers due the the 2-seat layout (with room for an Instructor and Trainee Pilot) and similarity of flight handling characteristics.
By the time of the Solinoid Invasion, the VT-1 had grown to fill the Interceptor role in most major NATO nations. Unfortunately the Supercat proved less than effective against the Solinoids during early encounters, where the Solinoid Fighters easily proved far more agile in aerial combat. Never-the-less, the VT-1 manages to hold its own as an Interceptor, and remains in service with numerous nations world wide.
