Small steps for the Boeing F-15EX

16th May 2019 - 11:20 GMT | by Damian Kemp in St Louis


Boeing’s next-generation F-15EX fighter aircraft has made another small, if potentially feeble, step with inclusion in the US House Appropriations Committee draft FY 2020 defence funding bill, which was released on 14 May. 

The aircraft features substantial EW and C4I changes from earlier versions such as the Advanced Display Core Processor II (ADCP II) and AN/APG-82 X-AESA radar.

The bill will be considered by sub-committee and faces a torturous and perilous journey but includes funding for ‘eight F-15EX aircraft to recapitalise the F-15C/D fleet ($986 million)’, which was also included in White House budget plans released in March.
