Recently, the American F-15QA fighter, considered the most advanced version of the production F-15 Eagle, took off for the first time.
In this regard, Popular Mechanics published material about the fourth generation fighter F-15 Eagle. One of its distinguishing features is that it has three external fuel tanks with 600 pounds of aviation fuel each, allowing the fighter to fly three thousand miles (over 4,828 km) without refueling in the air. “This incredible range, combined with the F-15’s ability to travel at a cruising speed of Mach 0.9 in non-boost mode, means the F-15 can traverse almost the entire world at any moment,” the publication said. The F-15 Eagle also has radar that can track enemy aircraft up to 200 miles away. The publication calls the F-15 Eagle the successor to the world’s first fifth-generation fighter, the F-22 Raptor, which is also designed to conquer the US air supremacy.
