F-15 Eagle in Action
Softbound Book
The F-15 Eagle resulted from a combination of air combat experience over Vietnam and the threat posed by new Soviet aircraft in the late 1960s. McDonnell Douglas (now Boeing) won the U.S. Air Force's Fighter Experimental (FX) competition and developed an aircraft optimized for air superiority missions. The F-15's combination of high performance, outstanding maneuverability, and advanced weapons and fire control allowed Eagle pilots to dominate air combat. The F-15 entered USAF service in 1975, soon became the service's premier fighter aircraft, and has been undefeated in air combat by Israeli, Saudi, and U.S. pilots over the Middle East and Balkans. Despite its air superiority design, the Eagle was successfully adapted to a ground attack role as the F-15E Strike Eagle. This variant proved its dual role capabilities over Iraq, Yugoslavia, and more recently Afghanistan. Book traces the development of this premier air superiority and ground attack aircraft. 49 pgs., 125 B&W photos, lne drawings, 3-views, 10 color profiles and more. 11"x 8", sfbd.
