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

    @yoshicraze Start by creating a single functioning nozzle piece, which in my case includes an inner flap, and the outer feather. next, create a flat cylinder the diameter of your engine's cavity. It should be able to fit inside the engine and not clip through it, because it will be hidden later. On this cylinder, add 2 (or 4) nozzle feathers around the outside. They should be spaced evenly and with plenty of room so they don't accidentally connect. You save this as a subassembly, and duplicate it, rotating it the appropriate amount for how many feathers you want. (30 degrees for 12) Once you've duplicated and rotated enough of these assemblies to account for all the feathers, you select each of them by the cylinder, and translate them to the same spot using your choice of editor tool. (0,0,0) is the easiest. once there, create another small cylinder in their center to attach all of them together, and save the result. You should now have a nozzle unit with 12 functional feathers in a perfect ring. Once connected, you can translate all the connector cylinders inside the engine to hide them, leaving just the nozzle ring.

    @KCferrari there's just something about the gray...
    What should my jet be painted and should it be smooth or have paint like downwards?

    @CRJ900Pilot Glad you like it and all but come on, don't be lazy. I'd much rather see your own built from scratch.

    Wow, what a beauty! Best F-15C I’ve seen yet, great work. Any chance you’d consider creating an F-15E?

    It looks just like the real thing! When you posted the screenshots on that forum, the tail view pic was so good, I thought you took it from the internet! Great work!
