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 4: Modern Warfare

In Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, the F-15 Eagle appears as a Killstreak reward. If you are on factions SAS or USMC and call in an Airsrike, three F-15 Eagles will deliver the payload.

The F-15 Eagle is commonly seen in campaign, most notably providing Close-Air Support in "Team Player" and performing SEAD operations during the assault on the Gulag during the mission "The Only Easy Day... Was Yesterday"


The Multiplayer Icon for the Precision Airstrike.


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.

Known F-15 Eagles

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



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.
