Additional updates and improvements:

F-15E Strike EagleThe F-15E differs from earlier made F-15s by having far more advanced systems and an improved air-to-ground configuration which lets it realize its superior potential in that role. It uses a whole new suite of avionics and weapons, incorporated by the rear seat Weapon System Operator (WSO) crewmember. Despite the great investment in air-to-ground, the F-15E still maintains the great air superiority capabilities of the former variants. The F-15E is designed for deep strike missions, high speeds, and performance in any weather, and any part of the day. Compared to earlier F-15s, it can fly farther, by regularly flying with 2 Conformal Fuel Tanks (CFTs- non-detachable fuel tanks which hug the fuselage to reduce drag and house weapon hardpoints).

Distinct Avionics:

-APG-63(V)4 Active Electronically Scanned Array (AESA) -AN/ALQ-131 ECM pod -LANTIRN (Low Altitude Navigation and Targeting Infrared for Night) pod -Lockheed Martin Sniper XR pod -LITENING targeting pod -SUU-42A/A Flares/Infrared decoys dispenser/chaff pod -2 conformal fuel tanks (CFTs), carrying 2,800 liters (750 U.S. gallons) and 6 weapon hardpoints each

Upgraded types of F-15Es:

-Israeli F-15I Raam (Total of 25 active aircraft) -Korean F-15K Slam Eagle (Total of 39 active aircraft) -Saudi Arabian F-15S Peace Sun IX (Total of 72 active aircraft) -Singapore F-15SG (Total of 24 active aircraft) -Japanese F-15J Peace Eagle
