After more than three years of design studies McDonnell Douglas was selected as prime contractor in 1969 for the F-X advanced air-superiority fighter.  The first F-15 flew in 1972.

A modified Eagle, the F-15E Strike Eagle performs the role of all-weather tactical interdiction aircraft retaining full air-to-air combat capability.  The Strike Eagle first flew in 1981.

Both air-superiority and tactical-
interdiction Eagles were used extensively in the Gulf War.

Eagles are also flown by the Israeli, Japanese and Saudi Arabian air forces.
