McDonnell Douglas F15E Strike Eagle


The twin-engine multi-role strike fighter F-15 Eagle had its maiden flight in July 1972. Since then, over 1600 machines of this type in different versions have been built. With afterburner, the two powerplants offer 129 kN thrust each, which corresponds to a thrust-to-weight ratio at normal weight of 0.93. This allows huge climb rates of up to 250 m/s. The maximum top speed of the F-15E is about Mach 2.54.


Key Features

Physics Simulation
