Boeing F-15 Eagle
is a dual-engine, air superiority jet developed by McDonnell Douglas in USA. First prototype flew in the early 1970s. The Eagle is famous for its air-to-air kill record, with 104 victories and zero losses. Later in its service life and with the changing strategy of air warfare, the Eagle was transformed into a strike platform. That variant was very successful as well. It was called Strike Eagle and designated as F-15E. It is a two man crew airplane. In the late 2020s, F-15EX was developed, called Eagle II, this time made by Boeing. F-15EX model is similar to F-15E, with two-seat configuration, but 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. It is meant to cover the duties of both C and E versions.
F-15 Eagle Camouflage
is a low-visibility camo scheme, with couple nuances of grey colors. This camouflage can be seen on F-15A/B/C/D/J & DJ variants, serving with USAF, J.A.S.D.F., Saudi Arabian and Israeli Air Force. Different shades of grey tones are noticeable, depending on the specific operator. Initially, early F-15As were flown with single-tone light gray scheme, that was changed and gave way to the 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 latest variant – F-15EX where colors are more distinctive one from another.
