F-15E Strike Eagle


Four F-15E aircraft fly in formation (Neg#: D1h63_C22-465-7) The F-15E Strike Eagle is a superior next generation multi-role strike fighter that is available today. Its unparalleled range, persistence and weapons load make it the backbone of the U.S. Air Force (USAF). A complement of the latest advanced avionics systems gives the Strike Eagle the capability to perform air-to-air or air-to-surface missions at all altitudes, day or night, in any weather.

A derivative of earlier F-15 model aircraft (A-D), the F-15E Strike Eagle includes the following attributes:

  • Unmatched combat radius and persistence
  • Advanced digital electronic controlled higher thrust engines
  • Max speed greater than twice the speed of sound
  • More than 23,000 pounds of payload, including air-to-air and air-to-ground weapons such as the:
    • the Joint Direct Attack Munition (JDAM)
    • the AGM-130
    • the Advanced Medium Range Air-to-Air Missile (AMRAAM)
    • AIM-9X
  • An Active Electronically Scanned Array (AESA) radar
  • A digital threat warning system
  • A Service life that will allow it to be viable until at least 2035

The F-15E is produced by Boeing and will be in the U.S. Air Force (USAF) inventory well into the 21st century.
