The F-15 Eagle is a single seat, twin engine, all weather, air superiority and tactical fighter designed to gain and maintain air superiority in aerial combat, as well as conduct air-to-ground airstrikes and tactical bombing missions.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2Edit
The F-15 Eagle is commonly seen in campaign, most notably providing Close-Air Support in "Team Player"; it is also spotted performing SEAD operations during the assault on the Gulag and during the mission "The Only Easy Day... Was Yesterday"
In Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, the F-15 Eagle appears in multiplayer as a killstreak reward. Three F-15 Eagles are unlocked as a 6-kill killstreak, the Precision Airstrike. This airstrike is directional and calls in three F-15s to cluster bomb an area, similar to the Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare version.
Appearance in CampaignEdit
- "Team Player"
- "The Only Easy Day... Was Yesterday"
- "The Gulag"
- "Of Their Own Accord"
- "Whiskey Hotel"
- "The Enemy of My Enemy"
- "Just Like Old Times" (Hostile)
Known F-15s FormationsEdit
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 Edit
In the Battle of New York, F-15s are spotted dog-fighting with Russian MiG-29s; they are also seen destroying a Russian base and several SAM sites at the start of "Hunter Killer". They are seen once again in "Iron Lady" attacking the invading Russians and rescuing the AC-130 Gunship from MiG-29 attacks. Furthermore, some F-15s can be seen if the player uses noclip in Stay Sharp and Charges Set; however, they are not solid objects.
Known F-15 EaglesEdit
- Lightning One-One
- Lightning Three-One
- Jester Two-Four
- Jester Two-Five
The F-15 appears in Modern Warfare 3's Multiplayer as the Assault Package's 6-point reward, the Precision Airstrike. Much like its predecessor, three planes will fly in a straight direction of the spot where it is launched by the player who called it and drop their payloads. Getting a Game Winning Killcam with this earns the winner the "Finishing Touch" Challenge and 2500exp. Killing 5 enemies at once will earn the "Carpet Bomb" Challenge and 5000 exp. Calling in two Airstrikes in a single match will earn the "Afterburner" Challenge with 2500exp. While in Prestige, getting a certain number of kills will earn the "Carpet Bomber" Challenge of different levels.
The Precision Airstrike compliments well with the Predator Missile and the Attack Helicopter as a 5-6-7 Point Streak combo. With Hardline Pro, the two-assist-kill ability makes it much faster to achieve the combo in 4 points. Land a kill with the Predator Missile to earn the Airstrike. Call it in on a high traffic area to get your 6th point to earn the Helicopter, then call the chopper to gain additional kills as it flies around the map.
Call of Duty: GhostsEdit
The F-15 makes a single appearance in the level The Hunted, where four F-15s escort the Y-8 gunship that extracts Rorke from the Ghosts' plane.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Edit
- All F-15s in the game bear the tail code "IW4" on their vertical stabilizers. The code usually identifies a plane's unit or base assignment, but since "IW4" is not in use by any of those entities, it clearly refers to the game's engine.
- The F-15s in many different levels (such as "Exodus", "The Only Easy Day... Was Yesterday" and others) have no visible pilots.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 Edit
- In several levels the F-15 model seen in-flight has its nose wheel down and cockpit open.
- Weirdly enough, in the loading screen of Hunter Killer, Lightning 3-1 is referred to as "F-22 Pilot" in subtitles, while they clearly show F-15s.
