McDonnell Douglas F-15 Eagle
The F-15 Eagle is a fighter jet that originally made by McDonnell-Douglas (later Boeing). It is known around the world for its toughness and undefeated record, meaning that it has never been shot down by an enemy plane. It is used primarily by the United States Air Force, but it is also used in Israel,Japan, Saudi Arabia and South Korea. It carries missiles to shoot down enemy fighter jet planes.
Redesign[change | edit source]
In 1981, the F-15 was redesigned to include the ability to carry bombs, allowing the F-15 to assume a ground-attack role, as well. This means that in addition to shooting down other planes, it can destroy buildings on the ground. This new variant of the aircraft was called the McDonnell Douglas F-15E Strike Eagle.
