F-15c "Eagle"

2,571 switdog08  1.3 years ago

This is my recreation of the very successful F-15c air superiority fighter jet. It features custom realistic gear & gear doors, actual folding inlets, a realistic armament of eight modded air-to-air missiles and four modded air-to-surface missiles, a machine gun that has similar performance to an actual F-15's, A semi-realistic cockpit, and very realistic flight performance. Unfortunately, it is somewhat undersized and weighting is off. It doesn't matter though because the ratios are similar. A cool paint job is given, as F-15 styling is very cool. I have been working on this for a while and I hope it is enjoyable. Passes sam invasion easy and could be used for aerobatics or even formation in multiplayer. The HUD glass requires the mod: Instrumentation (credit to Gestour for that awesome mod BTW) but it does not really effect anything other than aesthetics if you dont have it. A variant F-15e "Strike Eagle" has been posted Here. If you want to see the other comment section/previous voting page, go Here.

    @Schiefensnarglez yeah, it started as a very simple design and I just tacked on upgrade after upgrade and kinda forgot to change that, also by the time I noticed it, the cockpit was done and I didn't feel like redesigning everything in that area. So, i guess you could call it a retro F-15 XD

    @switdog08 not that bad for an f-15 buddy. i do have one issue with it and that is with how blocky it is, but other than that, good job! i couldnt have made a cockpit like yours for an f-15 unless i get really dedicated to building an f-15!

    @Pilot1223 You don't need the mod to fly the airplane it's just the HUD glass that needs the mod, if you don't have it just download the plane and you will still get the airplane just without the HUD glass. (there will still be a HUD frame)
