The F-15SG Strike Eagle (formerly F-15T) is a variant of the F-15E, ordered by the Republic of Singapore Air Force. F-15SGs were chosen in September 2005 over the Dassault Rafale. The F-15SG remains critical to having air superiority aircraft over neighboring countries that deploy state of the art Russian aircraft. The RSAF's F-15SG is an all-weather multi-role fighter aircraft designed to achieve air superiority. The F-15SG is the most advanced version of the Eagle with its great speed, maneuverability, electronics and weapons.
In 1967 the United States became aware of the Soviet MiG-25 Foxbat. This made it necessary to develop a new aircraft to counter the MiG-25. The USAF rejected the USN F-14 Tomcat and issued its own requirements. The solution came in the form of the McDonnell-Douglas (now Boeing) F-15 Eagle. The F-15A made its inaugural flight in July 1972 and in January 1976 the first Eagle entered service. The "E" entered service in 1989. The F-15 was the first dedicated USAF air superiority fighter since the F-86 Sabre.
