This model kit requires assembly. Cement, paint and other construction materials not included unless specifically stated in the description.
The F-15 Eagle was designed specifically to reprise the role of "dogfighter". To do this, the basic engineering was directed toward lower maintenance time by using less complicated systems. Maintaining the Eagle takes about half the time it takes for a Phantom F4, yet the F-15 retains essential automatic controls, such as engine inlet positioning.
The Eagle's twin Pratt & Whitney F100 afterburning turbofans prodce 10,000 more pounds of thrust than the weight of the plane. This allows the F-15 to turn tightly without sacrificing precious airspeed. The Eagle carries one 20mm rotary cannon as standard equiment, but eight hardpoints can carry an enormous variety of additional weaponry to enhance the dogfighting abilities of the plane.
