Boeing F-15 Eagle
is an American twin engine, air superiority jet fighter developed by McDonnell Douglas in the early 1970s. The Eagle is famous for its invincibility in air-to-air combat, with 104 kills and zero losses throughout its half of a century long career. Developed as a pure air-to-air combat plane, in the mid-1980s, the Eagle was transformed into a strike platform. That variant was very successful as well. However, Eagle’s fame comes mostly from Israeli Air Force victories in the Middle East. There, Israelis using F-15A/B/C/D managed to nearly obliterate enemy air forces, somehow keeping all their F-15s intact. In the late 2020s, F-15EX was developed, called Eagle II, this time made by Boeing. F-15EX model is a successor to both F-15C and F-15E, with two-seat configuration, improved capabilities and new engines combining the air-to-air & air-to-ground capabilities of both older variants into one newly re-imagined jet fighter.
F-15 Eagle Camouflage
is a low-visibility paint scheme, with variations of light and dark grey colors, sometimes grey/blue-ish for the darker spots. This camouflage can be seen on F-15A/B/C/D/J/DJ Eagles, serving with USAF, J.A.S.D.F., Saudi Arabian and Israeli Air Force. Variations of the grey tones are noticeable, depending on the specific operator. Even though initially F-15A were flown with single-tone light gray scheme, that quickly gave way to more effective camouflage available in this mask set. Similar camo scheme can be seen applied on F-22A Raptor, inherited from the mighty Eagle. This two-tone grey camo is also applied on the brand new F-15EX delivered to the USAF and is expected to serve for decades to come.
