There’s no doubt that the F-15 Eagle is one of the most iconic fighter jets of all time. After all, it has been in service with the United States Air Force for over four decades.
It had a reputation for being virtually unbeatable when it comes to air-to-air combat and holds a record of having 104 kills to zero losses.
So what makes this aircraft so dominant? The Eagle’s unbeaten record in air-to-air combat can be due to several factors. Designed in the early 1970s as a response to the Soviet Union’s advanced fighter jets, the F-15 was designed to be fast, agile, and deadly when it comes to air-to-air combat.
This fighter has a maximum speed of Mach 2.5 and a combat range of over 1,000 miles. It can also carry up to eight air-to-air missiles, if needed. Its design and capabilities make it a formidable opponent in the air.
