History of the F-15E:
The F-15E Strike Eagle is a strike fighter, designed for long range interdiction of enemy ground targets deep behind enemy lies. The F-15E carried our deep strikes against high value targets and provided close air support for coalition troops. The F-15E is different from the F-15 in a way that the F-15 Eagle has darker camouflage and the presence of the conformal fuel tanks attached to the aircraft's fuselage.
The F-15E Strike Eagle used two crew members, a pilot and a weapon systems officer. Previous models of F-15E are assigned to air to air roles. The Strike Eagles way to fight it is to a target over long ranges, destroy enemy ground positions and fight its way out. The navigation system of Strike Eagle used a laser gyro and a Global Positioning System to monitor the aircraft's position as well as to provide information. APG-70 radar system detects ground targets for long ranges. Another feature of the system of F-15E Strike Eagle is that after a sweep of a target area, the crew freezes the air ground to clear air threats. Thus, the pilot is capable of detecting, targeting and engaging air to air targets.
The rear cockpit and the weapons systems are the most important additions to the F-15E. The officer of Strike Eagle has four screens where in formation can be display from the radar, electronic warfare or infrared sensors, monitor aircraft or weapons status and possible threats, select targets and use an electronic to find the way. To select new displays, the f-15E has two hand controls. Displays can be moved from one screen to another.
On April 1988, the first production of F-15E was delivered to the 405th Tactical Training Wing, Luke AFB, Ariz. The Strike Eagle was the first US operational aircraft whose engines thrust exceeded the planes loaded weight. Thus, permitting it to accelerate even in a vertical climb.
