of the modern F-15C/D and F-15E Strike Eagle. Foreign jets are also included, giving the reader a glimpse into how they have been
modifed from USAF machines.
For the first time, a gallery is included at the end of the book featuring photos of Eagles from nearly every unit (USAF and
coalition air forces) worldwide that has ever flown the F-15 in operational service. The variety of markings shown in these pages
alone makes this book a true necessity for the Eagle aficianodo.
