F-15C Eagle USAF military aircraft 3D model
The McDonnell Douglas now Boeing F-15 Eagle is a twin-engine,
all-weather tactical fighter designed to gain and maintain air
superiority in aerial combat. It is considered among the most successful
modern fighters with over 100 aerial combat victories with no losses in
dogfights. Following reviews of proposals, the United States Air Force
selected McDonnell Douglas' design in 1967 to meet the service's need
for a dedicated air superiority fighter. The Eagle first flew in July
1972, and entered service in 1976. The F-15 is expected to be in service
with the U.S. Air Force until 2025.
Since the 1970s, the Eagle has also been exported to Israel, Japan, and
Saudi Arabia. Despite originally being envisaged as a pure air
superiority aircraft, the design proved flexible enough that an
all-weather strike derivative, the F-15E Strike Eagle, was later
developed, and entered service in 1989.
This model is the F15C Eagle of the USAF.
