Unique unit for America.
Back to the list of units
Like other jet fighters, F-15s are faster versions of their predecessor and F-15s pack very potent attack power. They may execute all air missions and have radar that allows them to "see" two squares, regardless of blocking terrain. They may be based in any city or aircraft carrier on the map.
An American city needs oil and aluminum in its Strategic Resource box to build an F-15.
The successor to the Grumman F-14 Tomcat, the F-15 was the first military aircraft with a genuine "look-down/shoot-down" capability, the product of pulse-Doppler radars that could detect fast-moving targets against cluttered radar reflections from the ground. Also designated the Eagle, the American F-15 was a twin-engine jet fighter produced by the McDonnell Douglas Corporation. Based on a design proposed in 1969 for an air-superiority fighter, it has also been extensively used in fighter-bomber versions. For two decades, it was the primary fighter of the American Air Force. F-15s were delivered to the U.S. Air Force between 1974 and 1994, and since have been sold to American allies and assembled under contract in Japan. The "Strike" Eagle carried out much of the nighttime precision bombing of Iraqi installations during the Persian Gulf conflict (1990-1991), as well as sweeping the Iraqi Air Force from the skies.
