[STOCK] 1:1 McDonnell Douglas F-15C Eagle v2.0

Recommended Posts

The F-15C Eagle was a development of the F-15A air superiority fighter which introduced a glass cockpit, modernized avionics and new weapon systems. It also extended the F-15s range which was sub-par in the first versions.

The F-15 up to this day stands as a backbone of the USAF and is one of the most successful air superiority fighters to ever enter service. Built with the not a pound for air to ground doctrine in mind it combines superior aerodynamics with high wing area and lifting body design to acheive unsurpassed energy retention and maneuverability.

AG1 controls the afterburners.

v1.0 - Initial release
v1.1 - Wing strakes smoothed out
v1.2 - Horizontal stabilizers control authority has been
adjusted, maneuverability increased by a small margin.
v1.3 - Engine position tweaked to be more realistic and seamless, dry thrust values adjusted to match the real Eagle’s
top speed at sea level, subtle improvement of aerodynamics resulting in a 10m/s increase of top speed at sea level.
v1.4 - Rigidity of the nose assembly improved.
v1.5 - Strutting improved, some miniscule part displacement behavior after discarding fuel tanks has been fixed.
v1.6 - Strutting further improved, part displacement when staging is now as far as I can see inexistent.
Fuel flow order adjusted to maintain better maneuverability with lower fuel supply.
v1.7 - Roll rate massively improved, horizontal control surfaces
adjusted to better match the shape of the actual F-15.
v2.0 - Complete rework of the airframe and the canopy.

Okey I'm looking forward to get home already and download this one. I'll give you my feedback then, but it looks AMAZING :D

One question does it preform true to the real thing?

Well, for the most part it does get really close. It can hit approx 350m/s at sea level and about 800m/s at 6k and above. Sustained turn G-force limit sits at around 10-11G, the real Eagle was limited to 9Gs in it's clean configuration AFAIK.

What about accelerating in a vertical climb one of the main advantages of the airframe

Yeah, the TWR with reheat is well above 1.0, somewhere around 1.2 if I remember correctly so vertical climbs are absolutely possible!

Bumping the thread to not make another one, the Eagle received a long due rework.
