The McDonnell Douglas F-15 Eagle is an American twin-engine, all-weather tactical fighter aircraft designed by McDonnell Douglas (now part of Boeing). The Eagle first flew in July 1972, and entered United States Air Force service in 1976.

History[]

Some surviving USAF F-15s participated in defending Area 51 during the July 4th counteroffensive. The F-15s were originally founded in one of the half-grounded hangars surrounding the minibase at Papoose Lake, and their parts were cannibalized over the years until Area 51's mechanics restored them into service.[1]

RSAF-operated F-15s participated in the counteroffensive as they successfully defended Mecca from a City Destroyer.[2]
