The F-15 Part 2: Strike Eagle
Show Notes


Let’s take a look at how the Eagle became the Strike Eagle

Overview

The F15E Strike Eagle is a dual-role fighter meaning it is capable of performing both  air-to-air and air-to-ground missions. The Strike Eagle is a twin engine, twin tailed fourth generation fighter capable of taking the fight down to low altitude and operating day or night in virtually any weather. 

Developed from  the hugely successful F-15 fighter, the Strike Eagle was created to fly long range interdiction missions or deep air support without the need for a fighter escort or electronic warfare aircraft.  Notable features that distinguish the Strike Eagle from the F15C Eagle are tandem seats, conformal fuel tanks, and a typically darker camouflage.
