In February, a fourth-age American contender, the Boeing F-15EX Advanced Eagle, took off interestingly. The plane was in the sky over Lambert International Airport in St. Louis (Missouri) for 90 minutes. Boeing claims that the new F-15EX Advanced Eagle is the most exceptional adaptation of the F-15 Eagle warrior. The initial two such airplanes will before long be conveyed to the US Air Force (Air Force). For what reason does the American military need the F-15EX Advanced Eagle when there is a fifth-age F-35 Lightning II warrior, says Lenta.ru.
During the principal trip of the F-15EX Advanced Eagle, aircraft testers Matt Giese and Mike Quintini raised the airplane to an elevation of more than 12 kilometers. The most extreme speed that the warrior created was Mach 2. The experimental drill, which was passed by Boeing’s standard Acceptance Test Procedure (ATP), tried the activity of the airplane’s primary frameworks, specifically a couple of F110-GE-129 motors, aeronautics, and programming. The tests completed in the organization were perceived as fruitful.
Fundamentally, the two-seater F-15EX Advanced Eagle is a further improvement of the F-15QA (Qatar Advanced) contender, made for the Qatar Air Force, which previously flew in April 2020. The most current rendition of the contender got, specifically, a fly-by-wire control framework, an advanced cockpit, A/APG-82 (V) 1 radar with a functioning staged radio wire exhibit (AFAR), an infrared hunt and global positioning framework, a Sniper pointing gondola, and a cutting edge electronic fighting framework ( Electronic fighting) and perceptions of the A/ALQ-250 Eagle Passive Active Warning Survivability System (EPAWSS).
The F-15EX Advanced Eagle has a payload of 13.4 tons. Four suspended arches can be put under the wings of the airplane. Hence, the F-15EX Advanced Eagle could turn into the most equipped warrior on the planet, conveying up to 22 guided aerial rockets, most remarkably the AIM-120 Advanced Medium-Range Air-to-Air Missile (AMRAAM). Subsequently, it should not shock anyone that the airplane got a subsequent seat, planned basically for the weapons frameworks official helpful in especially testing missions.
Later on, the airplane is wanted to be outfitted with hypersonic or hostile to satellite weapons. Specifically, in February 2020, at the Air Warfare Symposium 2020 in Orlando (Florida), the editorial manager of the American magazine Aviation Week and Space Technology Steve Trimble saw a model of an airplane with a detachable burden relating to a rocket weighing 3.3 tons, 6.8 meters long and 0.8 meters. Presumably, this item will be a reaction to the X-47M2 Blade hypersonic rocket framework, which is being gotten by the Russian MiG-31K interceptor warrior. At first, the F-15EX Advanced Eagle ought to supplant the maturing F-15C/D Eagle, which in the US Air Force was never displaced by the fifth-age F-22 Raptor and F-35 Lightning II contenders, which ended up being excessively costly. The last mentioned, likewise, to look after secrecy isn’t proposed to convey a weighty rocket and bomb load. The Americans are sure that the F-35 Lightning II and F-15EX Advanced Eagle will cooperate – the fifth-age contender will distinguish the foe and communicate target information to the more equipped fourth-age airplane.
An extra, however vital for the US Air Force the chance that the cutting edge F-15 Eagle ought to get later on is the control of a slave automated flying vehicle (UAV), like the Australian Boeing Loyal Wingman. Such robots are capable not exclusively to complete observation yet, besides, to convey rockets, altogether expanding the battle range of the lead airplane. Maybe liable for such robots in the F-15EX Advanced Eagle will likewise be a weapons frameworks official.
Another huge element of the F-15EX Advanced Eagle is the utilization of the Open Mission System (OMS) design, which permits, essentially because of standard interfaces and information designs, to rapidly coordinate present-day capacities into airplane frameworks.
The initial two airplanes, the F-15EX-1, and F-15EX-2 are relied upon to show up at Eglin Air Force Base (Florida) in the second quarter of this current year, by the 49th commemoration of the principal trip of the primary F-15A on July 27, 1972. of the year. Before May, the US Air Force intends to convey in any event one F-15EX Advanced Eagle to Alaska where the warrior is to go through operational tests. Washington is sure that this airplane will be helpful in the most troublesome situations of the Indo-Pacific performance center of tasks, essentially in case of a possible showdown between the United States and its partners with China.
As per American experts Ryan Bauer and Peter Wilson, regarding its qualities, the F-15EX Advanced Eagle takes after the Russian Su-57 contender, generally ascribed to the fifth era in Russia. Specialists are certain that the two airplanes have all the fundamental capacities of the fifth-age warriors, aside from covertness. The Su-57 and the F-15EX Advanced Eagle are united by the way that for the first, just as for the second, a total arrangement of rocket weapons has not yet been shaped.
By 2030, the US Air Force expects to get around 200 F-15EX Advanced Eagle units. The main creation airplane ought to be conveyed to the military as ahead of schedule as 2023. The expense of the comparing F-15 Eagle armada recharging program is assessed at $ 23 billion. For examination by 2028, the Aerospace Forces (VKS) of Russia ought to get just 76 Su-57 contenders.
