F-15C Eagle

The McDonnell Douglas F-15 Eagle is one of the most successful fighters ever built, with over 100 confirmed kills in combat, and 0 losses. This is my 1:1 recreation of the Eagle, featuring realistic statistics across the board, from wing loading to weights. This is likely the closest possible simulation of an F-15C's handling performance on SP, and I hope you all enjoy it. :)

Features:
- Detailed model, painstakingly replicated from countless references
- Semi-detailed 360 degree interior
- Realistic flight performance refined using real statistics
- Animated nozzles, gear, airbrake, and intake ramps
- Durable shock absorbing gear, for perfect landings every time.

Notes:
- Trim for flaps
- 14% thrust on approach for landing at approx. 10 degrees AoA (160mph)
- Do not make sudden pitch adjustments while landing, or you may stall the elevons and drop the nose.
- maximum speed (~1650mph) can be reached at high altitude

    @KCferrari I actually had your F-15C as one of the inspirations behind my recent F-15A Eagle, just because of how nice this one was for the version of the game it was made with.

    @CobraHueyIndustries Stopped building long ago, but I occasionally hop on to check out some community builds and whatnot.

    @CobraHueyIndustries @EngineerOtaku Kind of surprised people are still playing with this plane after all this time. Glad to see people still enjoying it. :)

    Nearly 3 years later and I still have a fond opinion of this build. One of the best F-15 Eagles on the website, hands down. It isn't horrendously massive in part count, but it has all the important details. Handles well. Could use custom missiles, but that's a minor thing.

    I need to learn to stop looking up airplanes that I built, because they put mine down...

    This has to be the best submission to this site. Incredibly accurate and detailed, realistic performance (if a bit slow for an Eagle), incredible engine details, and a mobile-friendly part count.

    @KCferrari sorry for the late response, so you only used thinner wings i assume?

    @LuciferOfPoland There's a few tweaks for cosmetics, but nothing that affects its flight physics

    hello, i noticed this flys hella realistically, and i was wondering if this is vanilla, or if it uses some tweaked parts?
