News! - Aircraft Released : F-15C Eagle by FACO Simulations

 

FACO F15 Eagle Header.jpg

 

The McDonnell Douglas F-15 Eagle is an American twin-engine, all-weather tactical fighter aircraft designed by McDonnell Douglas (now part of Boeing) and one of the all time greats of aerial combat aircraft ever produced. Following reviews of proposals, the United States Air Force selected McDonnell Douglas's design in 1967 to meet the service's need for a dedicated air superiority fighter. The Eagle first flew in July 1972, and entered service in 1976. It is among the most successful modern fighters, with over 100 victories and no losses in aerial combat, with the majority of the kills by the Israeli Air Force.

 

The F-15 Eagle was created to replace the already surperior fighter in the McDonnell Douglas F-4 Phantom II, used by the USAF, USN, and U.S. Marine Corps to provide air superiority over Vietnam, the only fighter with enough power, range, and maneuverability to be given the primary task of dealing with the threat of Soviet fighters while flying with visual engagement rules. A fourth-generation multi-role fighter the Eagle has reigned the skies for decades, but is now obviously feeling it's age.

 

As far as I know, FACO Simulations are new to developing for the X-Plane Simulator.
