One of the most successful modern fighters ever with over 100 aerial victories, the F-15 Eagle is a twin-engine, all-weather, tactical jet designed in 1967 and officially introduced in 1976. Seeing action in six nations, the Eagle is expected to continue production until 2019, an impressive 47-year manufacturing run — it will remain in service with the U.S. Air Force until at least 2025. The "C" variant is an improved variant manufactured from 1979-1985.
