F-15EX Boeing Provides Great Utilityload, power and flight range than any fighter in its class, Boeing representatives said. Advanced architecture F-15 facilitates the integration of new weapons, created on the basis of the latest weapons systems.
It is worth noting that as a "basis" forthe development of the F-15EX used far from new and advanced fighter McDonnell Douglas F-15 Eagle. However, this does not mean that the new combat vehicle is “out of date”. From McDonnell Douglas F-15 Eagle taken only, so to speak, "frame", which was karyne convenient and made it easy to install and change modules, equipment and weapons. At the same time, unlike its predecessor, the F-15EX has much greater maneuverability, the already mentioned extended ammunition and an improved set of solutions to reduce radar visibility. This means that the aircraft will be not only a fairly powerful combat unit, but also a unit hardly noticeable to the radar of a potential enemy.

In addition, Boeing expects interest in the F-15EX not only from the US Air Force, but also from foreign customers, who, according to some reports, will have to purchase an additional 24 fighter planes per year.
