First flown in 1972, the F-15C Eagle is said to be one of the most successful modern fighters, which is expected to remain in service until 2025. The F-15 Eagle was designed to meet U.S. Air Force requirements for an air superiority fighter to replace the F-4 Phantom. The Air Force needed a fighter that could engage long-range targets, a skill the F-4 did not possess.
