The F-15C Eagle is an American twin-engine all-weather tactical fighter jet, developed by McDonnell Douglas, selected as the United States Air Force’s (USAF) air superiority fighter.
Since debuting for the USAF in August 1990, the F-15C has served for the Royal Saudi Air Force and the Israeli Air Force as well as being a part of many significant conflicts such as Operation Desert Shield, Desert Storm, and Lebanon War with the F-15 family boasting an impressive combat record of 104 kills to zero losses. (2008)
In April of 2017, USAF officials declared that the F-15C would be replaced by the newly built Boeing F-15EX by 2025.

I believe the F-15C could add another option to choose from in the Infinite Flight fighter jet section. The F-15 is famed for its reliability, maneuverability, and ability to bring fear to her nemeses.
In Infinite Flight, the F-15 could expand military virtual airline fleets and activities and it will add another option for military exercises and another interceptor aircraft to defend the skies.

1.) I am aware there is another F-15 topic for features, however, according to the feature category rules (here), in rule one, it states that you are only allowed to request one variant in an entire family so I felt that the other F-15 topic (here) was outdated and I am only requesting one variant of the F-15 family here.
2.) For “potential liveries” I only put USAF liveries because I was not able to get the other operator’s registrations.
3.) This is my first aircraft-request topic, so thank you for reading this, if you got this far. If you find any mistakes, please do let me know! If you agree with me, please vote for my post, however don’t feel obligated too.
