The subject of this article appeared in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. The subject of this article appeared in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3.
For similarly named jets, see F/A-18E Super Hornet and FA38.

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.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2

Campaign

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"

The Multiplayer Icon for the Precision Airstrike.

Multiplayer

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.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3

Campaign

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 Eagles

  • Lightning One-One
  • Lightning Three-One
  • Jester Two-Four
  • Jester Two-Five

Multiplayer

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.

Trivia

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2

  • 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

  • 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.
