The F-14A -R4 Archer- is a modified version of the F-14A Tomcat with the Razgriz Squadron paint scheme and Hans Grimm's aircraft number. It is only available as a Special Aircraft in Ace Combat Infinity.
Ace Combat Infinity
- "A special version of the F-14A based on the first aircraft from an off-the-books special operations squadron.
Although there is a witness testimony attesting to the involvement of the squadron in multiple operations, confirming their existence, it has never been officially acknowledged by the military. This aircraft is an attempt to recreate the aircraft from this phantom squadron using collected images and data.
Highly tuned to meet the requirements of pilots from such a special unit, it is focused on stability, allowing for flying while in full command of the surrounding situation. In documents it is sometimes referred to as "the fourth aircraft, that only those pure of heart can see," a joke centered around the fact that the squadron was primarily a three aircraft unit, sometimes mixing with aircraft from another famous flight.
"After a long slumber, Razgriz returned. This time as a hero.""
