 F-15E Strike Eagle - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The "Strike Eagle", as it was dubbed, received initial operational capability in October 1989 at Seymour Johnson AFB in North Carolina.
As the Strike Eagles are more recent than the F-15 and rated for twice the lifetime, they will remain in service well into the middle of the 2020's, perhaps longer.
The deep strike mission of the F-15E is a radical departure from that of the F-15, designed as an air superiority fighter under the mantra "not a pound for air-to-ground".

 Tamiya 1/32 F-15E Strike Eagle Bunker Buster -TA60312
In the early 1980's, the Air Force requested McDonnell Douglas to modify their F-15 fighter into a dual-role aircraft to be known as the F-15E "Strike Eagle" for use as an air-to-air fighter, and for air to ground attack missions.
During the Gulf War in 1991, 2 squadrons of 48 F-15E Strike Eagles demonstrated their power as multi-purpose fighter/attack planes.

 F-15E Strike Eagle Pt 2 Into Service
By March 1992, the 391st FS had become operational with the F-15E and the 389th FS with the F-16C/D. By September, the fighter elements were supplanted by the 390th, operating the F-15C/D. The wing was completed by the 22 ARW (KC-135R) and the 34th BS (B-52G, later B-1B).
The final 550 FS F-15E was transferred to SJ late in 1994, a new squadron, the 333rd FS being formed at SJ to take on the training mission.
This wing had been associated with the Eagle since 1979 when it was reactivated to train pilots for the fighter versions.

 F-15 Eagle - Military Aircraft
The mission of the Strike Eagle is as succinct as that of its air-to-air cousin: to put bombs on target.
The Strike Eagle accomplishes this mission by expanding on the capabilities of the air superiority F-15, adding a rear seat WSO (Weapon Systems Operator) crewmember and incorporating an entirely new suite of air-to-ground avionics.
While the Eagle's aerodynamics and maneuverability are still on a par with newer aircraft, quantum leaps in integrated circuit technology have made the original F-15 avionics suite obsolete.

 Revell 1/48 F-15E Strike Eagle
The F-15E Strike Eagle was developed as a two seat strike and interdictor version of the F-15B and initially totally company funded on the anticipation their venture would be accepted by the USAF and subsequent orders placed.
At the end of 1988 the F-15E first flew and entered service soon after for deep penetration interdiction and strike missions in all weather conditions.
The USAF were impressed but their order was to be based on the F-15D, and 392 examples were placed on the order sheet, even though only around 200 were actually built.

 Revell's 1/48 F-15E Strike Eagle
Based on the two-seat F-15B/D, the F-15E Strike Eagle would retain the time-proven two-man crew configuration in an airframe that could incorporate the latest in avionics and weapons capabilities.
In the early 1980s, the USAF recognized that a replacement platform was required for the aging General Dynamics F-111 strike aircraft fleet.

 Italeri 1/72 F-15E Strike Eagle
The F-15E Strike Eagle began from a McDonnell Douglas funded development for the Enhanced Tactical Fighter to replace the F-111, which saw a TF-15A modified heavily for air to ground operations.
The "Strike Eagle" was chosen in favour of its competing F-16XL.
It shows the Strike Eagle in its prototype form (see the decal sheet) and therefore a lot of work has to be done on it especially on the CFTs.

Since then, all Strike Eagle training has been switched to the 4th Fighter Wing as Luke is now an all F-16 base.

The 'Strike Eagle' demonstrator was joined by an F-15C and an F-15D which conducted trials with a variety of fuel and ordnance loads, usually with CFTs fitted.
Although the F-15E is an exceedingly potent warplane for the strike missions, critics point out that its low wing-laoding produces a rough ride, especially for the backseater, and that the F-15E's payload is less than that of the 30-year-old F-111.
McDonell's 'Strike Eagle' name was not adopted, though some unofficial epithets such as 'Beagle' (Bomber Eagle) and 'Mud Hen' have benn used on occasion.
