Today September 18th is the 66th birthday of the United States Air Force. I am very proud to present my first model of the F-15 Eagle. I'll have more to come of this aircraft in the future until then I hope you enjoy.

Learn more about the USAF birthday and history.

F-15 Eagle



TheMcDonnell Douglas(nowBoeing)F-15 Eagleis atwin-engine, all-weathertacticalfighterdesigned byMcDonnell Douglasto gain and maintainair superiorityin aerial combat. It is considered among the most successful modern fighters, with over 100 aerial combat victories with no losses indogfights.[3][4]Following reviews of proposals, theUnited States Air ForceselectedMcDonnell Douglas' design in 1967 to meet the service's need for a dedicated air superiority fighter. The Eagle first flew in July 1972, and entered service in 1976.

Since the 1970s, the Eagle has been exported to Israel, Japan, Saudi Arabia, and other nations. The F-15 was originally envisioned as a pure air superiority aircraft. Its design included a secondary ground-attack capability[5]that was largely unused. The design proved flexible enough that an all-weatherstrike derivative, theF-15E Strike Eagle, was later developed, and entered service in 1989. The F-15 Eagle is expected to be in service with the U.S. Air Force past 2025.[6]F-15 versions are still being produced for foreign users, with the F-15 production line set to end in 2019, 47 years after the type's first flight.[7]

No during World War II it was the United States Army Air Corps and United States Air Service. After the vital importance of air power had been demonstrated during WWII the US decided to create an own individual branch which is now the United States Air Force.

Thanks Vrezh, I felt like I hit weak on the wings though so I'll be remaking it. Also I'll have different versions for the different variations of the F-15 Eagle, and then for those who like 1/1 scale I'll have an F-15 Eagle out soon for that as well.

STEALTHy! i suggest you make a new F-16 but the Block 60 variant with those two long fuel tanks or something that run along side the top of the fuselage and wings!
