An overview: The F-15

The Boeing F-15 Eagle is a 4th Generation Air Superiority Fighter, designed in the early 70s, it first entered service with the US Air Force in 1974 and since then it has become one of the most iconic aircrafts of all time and the embodiment of the air dominance of the United States of America. Its service record has been nothing less than astonishing; No F-15 has ever been shot down by an opposing force, having achieved more than 100 air to air victories, it is the most successful US fighter in service. Except the US, it is operated by the Israeli Air Force, the Royal Saudi Air Force and the Japanese Air Self-Defense Force. Some of the highlights of its career are: The 1982 Lebanon War (IAF) The Gulf Wars (USAF & RSAF) Yemeni Civil War (RSAF) Most of the victories achieved from the F-15s come from Israeli pilots, because of tensions with Syria over the status of the Gaza Strip in late 70s and early 80s. Its newest version; F-15 Eagle II will include AESA radar technology and significant improvements in Air to Ground operations, something that will turn it into a more multi role fighter than the previous versions used by the USAF. Air Superiority is the single most defining aspect of Modern Warfare, it has decided the victor and the loser in almost every single conflict since WWI. The United States are focusing a lot on this aspect of Warfare and the preservation the the F-15s will be an asset to the Air Forces that will use them and they will take flight hours of the 5th and 6th generation stealth aircraft.
