The latest 3D-shaped Challenge Coins honor two supersonic fighter jets whose aerodynamic designs testified to superior U.S. air power and advances in engineering. Exclusively colorized by Littleton’s artists, the Grumman F-14 was equipped with variable-geometry wings that adjusted automatically for optimal performance. It defended U.S aircraft-carrier operations at long ranges. The Northrop F-5E/F Tiger was designed as a low-cost, lightweight, multi-role Mach 1-capable fighter plane.
A famous cat-and-a-mouse aerial exchange between “Tomcat” and “MiG-28” in a popular Hollywood movie brought these two fighter jets to the public’s attention. They’re perfect gifts for fans of air shows and American air prowess.
