Razgriz squadron flies F-14s, and there are four squad members... but F-14s are two-seater planes...

 

Who are their Radar Intercept Officers? the world may never know...

 

Is it possible to fly any F-14 effectively with one person?

 

Ant to top it off, the in-game aircraft clearly shows two people in each jet...

A question as old as the games themselves.

 

Who are their RIOs? They don't exist. PA purposefully ignores them because things like RIOs are simply outside the scope of the game. And if they aren't needed for the game to function as a game and narrative, then there's no reason to posit them. The only reason the RIO is in the model is because it'd be conspicuous if it weren't.

 

Is it possible to fly the F-14 effectively with only the pilot? You might maybe be able to fly it, however unsafely, but certainly not into combat. The RIO is the only one who can control the plane's sensors and weapons systems. It's not a trainer, so there was no reason to duplicate any of the controls between the two seats.

And a reminder: the EA-6B has a crew of four.

 

Now give it to Chopper.

Jet fuel can't pilot two seaters Georgia. This is important.

Careful. This topic is so touchy that someone has been banned over it!
