― XBL Marketplace description

The WARDOG EMBLEM is a variant of the F-14D Super Tomcat, which is themed on the 108th Tactical Fighter Squadron "Wardog", an squadron of the Osean Air Defense Force and the protagonists of Ace Combat 5: The Unsung War. The plane is given a matching visual redesign, featuring a black nose and stabilizers. The Wardog emblem is displayed in the stabilizers, while the initials "OMDF" are displayed beside the engines. The Osean Federation emblem is also shown next to the canopy.

The WARDOG Super Tomcat's maximum speed and air-to-air are provided with a noticeable upgrade, while mobility and air-to-ground are conversely reduced to near-minimum levels. The loss of maneuverability takes its toll on the aircraft, as the Tomcat becomes less responsive to player input, while also pitching and rolling more slowly. Furthermore, the high speed comes at the cost of reduced acceleration.

The plane's weapons capacity has suffered a notable change. The XLAA and SAAM weapons are provided with increased payloads, while the Guided Penetration Bombs' payload has been reduced to five, making it the special weapon with the lowest ammo count in the entire game.
