    U.S. aerospace giant Boeing has released concept images depicting the new F-15EX Advanced Eagle fighter aircraft.

    Boeing launches a new update for the website as part of the promotional activities of its new upgraded version of the F-15EX fighter jet, commonly known as Strike Eagle on Steroids.

    With new concept images, Boeing reveals additional details of new fighter jet purpose-built for the U.S. Air Force.

    F-15EX leverages $5B+ in technology investments over the past decade to bring the U.S. Air Force the world’s most modern variant of the undefeated F-15.

    Complementing other aircraft, the F-15EX enhances the air combat capabilities of the fleet to ensure the U.S. remains ahead of current and emerging threats.

    The Advanced Eagle will have unmatched weapon station capacity up to 29,500 lbs. of a payload supported by 12 certified air-to-air hardpoints and 15 certified air-to-ground hardpoints.

    The Advanced F-15 will can carry the full array of air-to-air, air-to-ground and maritime strike weapons. The aircraft can engage a multitude of targets on any given mission.

    The Advanced F-15’s design architecture facilitates affordable, low-risk integration of new weapons.

    A fully integrated electronic warfare suite provides a full spectrum of protection and enables dominant engagement of new and emerging threats. The F-15EX will be able to survive modern integrated air defense systems and seamlessly communicate with other sensors to deliver automated IR countermeasures for enhanced survivability.

    Also added that new, more powerful twin engines provide the F-15EX with unrivaled speed and acceleration capabilities, allowing the pilot to get to the target faster.

    Last month, the U.S. Air Force unveiled a nearly $166 billion budget request for fiscal 2020 includes plans to buy eight new F-15EX fighter aircraft to replace ageing F-15C/D fleet.

    According to the budget request, it will cost $80 million per airframe, but that cost will rise to ~$125 million for each of the eight jets “to set up the line” and account for non-recurring engineering costs in the first year of procurement.

    Total deal will be worth more than $1.1 billion and covers production of eight brand-new F-15EX fourth-plus generation fighters.

    F-15 still has 100 years of life to go. Even when 6th gen gets here poor countries can only afford these.

    Congress first has to approve of 'em first. And rich countries can barely afford them (now). You truly believe that they'll be able to afford those twin-engines jets in the future.

    For those (poor) countries, the newly branded F-21 will be the best option for years to come with more Blocks coming out ever 12-15 Years.

    Design looks like a hybrid of F-15 and F-18 but much more sleek than both combined .

    In terms of frame it should be identical to F-15A/C/E.

    First thing that came to my mind was the F-15 as well, but looks amazing. Didn't know they were still working on the jet.

    F-15 engines probably top out at about 30,000 lb thrust. These engines ain't as big as those in F-22 and F-35.
