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. Unlike the Stealth Bomber, the F-15s will show up (but will not be announced) since F-15's do not have stealth technology.

Appearance in Campaign

Known F-15s Formations

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3

In the Battle of New York where F-15s are spotted dog-fighting with Russian MiG-29s, and are seen destroying a Russian base and several SAM sites in the intro of "Hunter Killer". They are seen once again in "Iron Lady" attacking the invading Russian forces. Also, some F-15s can be seen if the player uses cheats and jumps out of missions Stay Sharp and Charges Set. However, those F-15s are not solid objects.

Trivia

Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare

  • The Airstrike's damage radius in Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare is larger than that of the other Modern Warfare games.

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.
  • On the PC, if the player no-clips in "The Only Easy Day... Was Yesterday" under the F-15 Eagle the landing gear is still deployed.
  • Also, the F-15 variant depicted in-game is the wrong one. The game depicts one-seat F-15Cs Eagles attacking ground targets. F-15Cs are actually not capable of such abilities, instead being purely designed as air superiority aircraft. The related two-seat F-15E Strike Eagles can perform air to ground support, but these planes never appear on the entire game.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3

  • An error in the introduction of "Hunter Killer" in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 has the subtitles refer to the F-15 Lighting 1-1's pilot as "F-22 Pilot." This may indicate the aircraft were not originally intended to be F-15s; the cutscene also states the aircraft are carrying JDAM bombs despite them having the same air-to-air configuration seen in the in the rest of the game.
  • Occasionally airborne F-15s are an on-ground model with the canopy open.
