More About the F-15
The F-15E Strike Eagle is a tactical fighter aircraft that was developed by the company that became Boeing, formerly known as McDonnell Douglas. It first became operational in 1989.
This two-seat craft accommodates a weapons systems officer (WSO) in addition to the pilot. Incredibly, it can travel more than twice the speed of sound at 1,875 miles per hour!
Thanks to a sturdy and ingenious design, the F-15E has a very long lifetime. Military experts expect that the Strike Eagle will continue to be used by the Air Force well into the next decade. As of yet, no replacement for the model is being planned by the USAF.
Over the years, these aircraft have been sold to American allies such as Israel and South Korea.
The F-15E Strike Eagle is especially adept at flying at low altitude and in dark or otherwise poor-weather conditions. However, it is also versatile and has extensive air-to-surface capabilities.
In terms of weapons, the aircraft is equipped with 20-mm cannons as well as bombs, missiles, and other munitions.
The F-15E saw its first extensive action in the Gulf War of the early 1990s. Since then, they have been used frequently in the fight against the so-called Islamic State (ISIS or ISIL).
In an exclusive partnership with the United States Air Force and Guy Harvey, Gainesville Coins is honored to bring the F-15E Strike Eagle to a silver coin!
