All About The Eagle: F-15 Facts

F-15

Do you have $29.1 Million? The figurehead of the Biden-Harris regime has suggested that in order to “move against a Government” a patriot would require an F-15 or a nuke there seems to be an emerging market for the Air Superiority fighter.

This shouldn’t come as much of a surprise given that the F-15 has been in service for 48 years now. The vintage 1972 fighter had that new car smell when Nixon was still in office and is currently fielded by seven different nations and according to MilitaryMachine.com making it one of the most common combat aircraft in the world.

Some Basics On Biden’s Recommended Second Amendment Accessory

The Strange Origins of the F-15

According to BoldMethod in the ’60s the U.S. Military managed to get their hands on a Soviet MiG-25 Foxbat which also boasted a large wingspan and two engines. “They feared it was a highly maneuverable fighter that outclasses all US fighters. It turns out that wasn’t the case, but it is what sparked the F-15 project.”

The F-15 is powered by Two Pratt & Whitney F100 or two GE F110 turbofan engines in 29,000 lb (13,154 kg) thrust class with after burning, to reach that 1,875 mph. Texas might need to update a few speed limits. The F-15 Eagle has a range of 3,450 miles and can be mid-air refueled.

Let’s Talk Ordinance

Airforce-Technology.com went into further detail, “The F-15E aircraft can carry payloads up to 23,000lb. The aircraft can carry up to four Lockheed Martin / Raytheon AIM-9LM infrared-guided Sidewinder air-to-air missiles, up to four Raytheon AIM-7F/M radar-guided Sparrow air-to-air missiles, or eight Raytheon AMRAAM radar-guided, medium-range air-to-air missiles.”

Between the Sidewinder, Sparrow, and AMRAAM missile platforms the F-15 has a range of about 50km.

For those with more stationary targets in mind: “The first units of GBU-15 glide bomb upgraded with Global Positioning System (GPS) guidance have been delivered for deployment on the F-15E. The Joint Direct Attack Munition (JDAM) was cleared for carriage on the F-15E in February 2005. The aircraft will also be able to carry the Lockheed Martin AGM-158 joint air-to-surface stand-off missile.”

The F-15 is also armed for close combat with an internal General Dynamics M-61A1 20mm Gatling gun installed in the right-wing root, which can fire an astonishing 4,000 or 6,000 shots a minute.

Now how can Biden and the Democrat-Socialists be so very keen on eliminating the Second Amendment right to bear arms and then recommend something that fires 4,000-6,000 20mm sabot rounds? It’s ridiculous!
