F-15E  Strike Eagle

The F-15E was developed from an F-15B as a dual role fighter designed for both air superiority and air-to-ground missions.  Unlike the F-15A and F-15C single-place aircraft, the -E model carries a pilot and a weapon systems officer (WSO).
The F-15E, which first flew on 11 December 1986, was used extensively in the Persian Gulf during Operation Desert Shield/Storm with great success.  The Strike Eagle is used exclusively by the USAF and scheduled procurement of the aircraft through 1998 bringing the total number of F-15E's produced to 225.
