The McDonnell Douglas / Boeing F-15C Eagle is a highly maneuverable fourth-generation twin-engine all-weather tactical fighter. It has been the air superiority fighter mainstay of U.S. and NATO forces since the 1970s and will remain as such well into the 21st century.
Air superiority is achieved through high maneuverability at a wide range of airspeeds and altitudes, as well as advanced weapons and avionics.
The weapons and targeting system the F-15C can detect, track, and engage enemy aircraft autonomously. The F-15C can also be directed by ground and airborne controllers at beyond visual range, medium distances, and in close-quarters maneuvering dogfights, over friendly or enemy territory.
Weapons and control systems are configured in a way that enables a single pilot to effectively fight multiple enemy aircraft. The combination of the powerful radar and long range weapons often give the Eagle the first shot / first kill advantage.
The development program for the F-15C was based on an urgent need for a maneuverable latest-generation fighter, and the design was based new technologies as well as time-honored tradition of such famous aircraft as the P-51 Mustang and the F-86 Sabre.
