Description: The F-15 Eagle is an all-weather, extremely maneuverable, tactical fighter aircraft designed to outperform and outfight enemy aircraft obtaining air supremacy for the US Air Force. It replaced the F-4 Phantom II in the US Air Force inventory. During the Balkan conflict the F-15s downed four Serbian MiG-29 Fulcrum and 33 out of the 35 fixed-wing aircraft downed during the Gulf War. The success key of the F-15 Eagle is combination of maneuverability, weaponry, advanced avionics and a pulse-Doppler radar system. The pulse-Doppler radar permits to engage multiple low and high flying targets at long range. The F-15's internal countermeasures system provides both threat warning and automatic delivery of countermeasures against selected threats. The F-15A/B aircraft entered service with the US Air Force in 1975. McDonnell Douglas, now Boeing, has produced more than 2,000 aircraft to date for the US Air Force and several customers worldwide.

The F-15 Eagle air defense fighter aircraft is armed with an internal 20mm Gatling gun, four medium range AIM-7 Sparrow or AIM-120A/B/C AMRAAM missiles and up to four short range AIM-9 Sidewinder missiles. The key sensor provided to the Eagle is the APG-63 pulse Doppler radar which allows to engage the most elusive airborne targets flying at low altitudes. The A, B, C and D models of this aircraft were designed to fly exclusively air defense missions with none or near irrelevant attack capabilities.

The F-15SE Silent Eagle is the latest F-15 aircraft configuration unveiled by Boeing on March 17, 2009, to meet the requirements of international Air Forces at an affordable cost. The F-15SE features stealth/low-observable technologies with extensive use of coatings and treatments on the aircraft, redesigned canted double tail minimizing radar cross section (RCS) and providing extra , and redesigned conformal fuel tanks (CFTs) that allow for internal weapons carriage with up to four stations (2x2). The aircraft will be provided with a Digital Electronic Warfare System (DEWS) from BAE Systems and Advanced Electronic Scanning Array (AESA) radar from Raytheon for enhanced survivability. By mid-2013 the Republic of Korea Air Force (RoKAF) was mean to buy 60 F-15SE fighter jets under a direct commercial sale. In September 2013, the Republic of Korea (RoK) re-opened the tender for the supply of 60 fighter jets due to lack of confidence on the F-15SE capabilities. Finally, the RoKAF selected the Lockheed Martin F-35A aircraft.

The internal weapons carriage is compatible with AIM-120D and AIM-9X air-to-air missiles as well as Joint Direct Attack Munitions (JDAMs) and Small Diameter Bombs (SDBs) air-to-ground weapons. Boeing and an international aerospace partner have completed a conceptual prototype of the CFT internal-carriage concept, and plan to flight-test a prototype by the first quarter of 2010, including a live missile launch. With traditional CFTs installed the aircraft has the standard weapons load used on current versions of the F-15E. Its digital flight control system improves the aircraft's reliability and reduces airframe weight.
