- F-15 Eagle, being targeted

Built for air superiority, the F-15 can target anything trying to fly over your forces on the battlefield. Armed with triple Sidewinder air-to-air missiles and resistant to anti-air weapons, the F-15 is useful for escorting other planes. It can be upgraded with countermeasures to negate some enemy missiles.

In High Treason its ammunition limit was lifted, and it will engage enemy aircraft two at a time.

Background[]

The McDonnell Douglas (now Boeing) F-15 Eagle is a twin-engine, all-weather tactical fighter designed by McDonnell Douglas to gain and maintain air superiority in aerial combat. It is considered among the most successful modern fighters, with over 100 aerial combat victories with no losses in dogfights. Following reviews of proposals, the United States Air Force selected McDonnell Douglas' design in 1967 to meet the service's need for a dedicated air superiority fighter. The Eagle first flew in July 1972, and entered service in 1976.

Since the 1970s, the Eagle has also been exported to Israel, Japan, Saudi Arabia, and others. The F-15 was originally envisioned as a pure air superiority aircraft. Its design included a secondary ground-attack capability that was largely unused. The design proved flexible enough that an all-weather strike derivative, the F-15E Strike Eagle, was later developed, and entered service in 1989.

Upgrades[]

Costs $3000. These inboard jamming pods provide all aircraft with the additional ability to sustain damage from incoming missiles, and makes them more difficult to lock on to, thus increases the health of all aircraft by 33%.

Costs $2500. Long-range missile that causes twice as much damage as the Sidewinder, thus increases the damage of the F-15 by 50%.
