The McDonnell Douglas F-15E Strike Eagle entered service in the mid-1980s and is expected to remain in service until at least 2025. The reason for it’s longevity is simple — it’s a great plane.
As its name implies, the Strike Eagle is primarily an attack aircraft, and it’s capable of carrying up to 23,000 pounds in bombs and external fuel. But the F-15E excels in a dogfight too, with more than 100 aerial combat victories.
If you admire the F-15E, you can get your hands on your very own F-15E with this diecast model from High Flying Models. Built on a 1/72 scale, the model is every bit as attractive as the actual jet.
