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 single-seat F-15C Eagle entered the US Air Force inventory beginning in 1979 and deliveries continued until the late 1980s. The C model has additional internal fuel, provision for carrying external conformal fuel tanks, and increased maximum takeoff weight. The most part of F-15A operational shortfalls were solved in the C model. In addition to the United States of America, Japan, Israel and Saudi Arabia are the only foreign operators of the combat-proven F-15C Eagle, F-15J designation for Japanese Eagles. The US Air Force F-15C/D aircraft are equipped with APG-63 and APG-70 radars. The APG-63(V)1, APG-63(V)2 and APG-63(V)3 upgraded radars were provided to over a hundred aircraft in the 2000s as part of a modernization effort. The entire US Air Force F-15C/D fleet is slated for retirement in the 2020-2025 timeframe or earlier depending on the defense budget cuts.
