Well, Tomcat to be honest. However, YES, the Tomcat has gotten a face lift for all of those Militaries who are looking for a new edge for their old birds. The F-14E Zipang has been released. Its Specifications are included in a pamphlet located below

We question the 'naval' aircraft section of this fight, as we can and do launch planes larger than single seat fighters off our Carriers, up to our YF-45 supersonic strike bombers, would they be allowed to compete?

Your carriers must be massive, carry alot of fuel and bombs and must have massively powerful catapults. Naval planes are built for a reason. They are usually multi role and are small enough to fit many of them on the ship but also fast to do any mission. If you you feel the need to launch larger aircraft, you may need to evaluate how you operate with navy forces.

All Orders are being processed, and the units will be shipped within the week.

Furthermore, could we get some statistics to these Fighters so that we may determine if they are really navalized, or if you decided to build a giant mobile island instead of a real Aircraft Carrier.

You are obviously ignorant of matched speed take off and landing techniques and technology. How ever, you are right, we can only carry a limited number of these bombers and still we have to sacrifice space that is normally used for our Interceptor X or Weasel II models and their ordnance.
