American aerospace giant Boeing for several years working on the creation of the newest fighter aircraft of the latest generation F-15EX. Previously on the vast world wide web have already leaked some pictures of the future aircraft. But now there’s a video and the looks of the new aircraft. And posted it not to anyone but the developers themselves. Besides, became known and some other details regarding the new generation of fighter aircraft.
What the latest fighter F-15EX
As representatives of the Boeing company, F-15EX is the most economical, fast, well-armed and advanced solution ever created by engineers and designers of the company. New combat aircraft will be fitted with the high performance in the world-Board computer, an advanced flight control system for efficient fuel consumption and easy maneuvering and advanced electronic radar, allowing to detect targets at very long distance.

According to official figures, the fighter will have 12 points for the suspension and mounting of missiles “air-air” and 15 points for the weapon class “air-ground”. Thus, the F-15EX will be one of the most heavily armed fighter in the world at the moment.

F-15EX Boeing delivers greater payload capacity and range than any fighter in its class, — said representatives of Boeing. The advanced architecture of the F-15 facilitates the integration of new weapons, created on the basis of the latest weapons systems.
It is worth noting that the “fundamentals” in the development of the F-15EX used is not new and advanced fighter , McDonnell Douglas F-15 Eagle. However, this does not mean that the new combat vehicle “pre-obsolete”. From the McDonnell Douglas F-15 Eagle is only, so to speak, “frame”, which was karyne convenient and made it easy to install and replace modules, equipment and weapons. Thus, in contrast to the predecessor, the F-15EX has much greater maneuverability, the advanced ammo and superior complex solutions for the reduction of radar visibility. So the plane is not only a fairly powerful combat unit, but a unit invisible to potential enemy radars.

Already, the U.S. Department of defense in conjunction with U.S. air force and with the support of the Senate Committee on state appropriations allocated 992,4 million dollars for setting service 8 F-15EX, 2 of which are ready for use and pass a series of test flights. In addition, Boeing is counting on interest in the F-15EX not only from the USAF, but also by foreign customers, which, according to some estimates, will need to purchase an additional order of 24 combat fighters per year.
