Description

The Russian Air Force has a Fighter Bomber, so I think the Americans should have one too, the F-15E would be great, because you can also get an F-15 out of it, by modifying the model.

vote no , because the f-16 is more use in modern conflict

Updated by JDMT about 5 years ago

I haven't heard much about the addition of the F-16. Can you send me a link?

Have you seen an ArmA 2 F15 addon yet ?

Updated by SphinX about 5 years ago

F-16 is more of a small, fast fighter, the F-15 is a multipurpose air superiority/strike aircraft.

Not to mention the F-15 is going to be in service until 2025.

The F-15 is the longest serving, and one of the most success aircraft ever made. It would be stupid not to have it, as it has been a major part of the USAF since 1976.

No need for the F-16 when the F-35 is in the game, and seeing as the OPFOR side now has a multipurpose air superiority/strike aircraft, the F-15 would be the perfect aircraft to counter it, seeing as they are both similar in their capabilities.

Unfortunately there isn't one on Armaholic, but hopefully someone in the community, or BIS will make it.

ArmA I

Updated by M1n1d0u about 5 years ago

F-35 = 4 pod F-16 = 10 pod ... IMO f-16 is a better addition than a F-15

So basically this is an ArmA 1 model that somebody is porting over to ArmA 2 but it is not available anywhere.

By looking at our available resources it won't happen in the next time.

You would rather an aircraft that can carry more weapons, than one that has played a vital role in the USAF for 40 years.

I'm not an american, and I'd prefer to see the F-15, purely because it is an amazing aircraft, not just something you can fit more bombs/AA missiles onto.

No other aircraft has served as long as the F-15 has (from memory).

Updated by Xeno about 5 years ago

Like I allways write... this is a tracker and not a discussion forum. So please stop the discussion which plane is more amazing immediately.

Updated by SphinX about 5 years ago

Sorry, just pointing out why the plane would make more sense to be included.

F-16 has virtually been replaced by the F-35, the AV-8 and A-10 have their certain roles, but there isn't anything designed to do the role of all of them.

Updated by NMDanny about 5 years ago

F15 Strike Eagle is actually better then F16 Fighting Falcon(non upgraded f16)
in real life f35 can carry more weapons but it's not stealthy

Updated by Schmee about 5 years ago

Voted yes.

I have long thought the Allied forces in ArmA (1 & 2) are lacking in the Air force department.

While the F-16 is a good plane it has all but been replaced by the F-35 and as such No need for an older version of basically the same thing.

Something is needed to give allied commanders more fast moving options, And I Think the F-15 fits that role perfectly

That's quite possibly the least accurate and least relevant excuse I've seen this year.
The F-16 is a multirole aircraft that can't carry too many heavy munitions and isn't designed as a pure ground attack aircraft.
The F-15E is a strike aircraft (i.e. Not the same as the F-16) that can carry more munitions weight.

Plus it also seems that people haven't the slightest clue on what the difference between an F-15 Eagle and an F-15E Strike Eagle is. The F-15(A-D) Eagle is an Air Superiority fighter designed purely to shoot down other aircraft. The F-15E is designed to conduct precise strikes on enemy ground targets, and as such is not fully comparable to an F-16.

And for those who are saying that the F-16 has been replaced by the F-35? Yes, if this were 2025, when they plan to fully replace the F-16s with F-35s, but I can assure you that there are plenty of F-16s still in use.

But, as Xeno said, there is no model for the F-15 that's up to ArmA II standards. No model, no addon, simple as that. Unless one of you wants to make, or has made, a .p3d for an F-15E, then you're going to be in for a long wait. Yes, I'd like to see the F-15, but it's not going to happen in the near future unless someone starts work on one.

The C-130 and KC-135 have been in service since 1957, the TU-95 Bear since 1956, and the B52 and U2 since 1955.

To end the discussion here and get back to a ticket that is meant to be voted and updated with important data:

1. The Su-27S in ACE is a AirSuperiorFighter with very limited ground-strike capabilities (unguided rockets only).
2. There will be an updated version maybe.
3. There is no F-15 model available which will make it into ACE for the moment.
4. There is a F-16 model nearly set up for ACE, but its done when its done.
5. models, textures and configs for an F-15 are always welcome :D but there are limited hands and minds on each developer. ^^

Updated by JDMT about 5 years ago

I have contacted Southy about using his F-15C, and F-15E for ACE2. I am awaiting a response.

Updated by JDMT about 5 years ago

Got a good response from Southy...

I just wanted to chime in on this from a military point of view.

The F-16 does offer its ground support ability to the ground forces. However, When I severed tours in Iraq and Afghanistan, the F-15E provided more fire support. Not only can it load a heavier payload, it has better systems for the scenario of precision ordinance in a high civilian and high allied forces prescience.

I wont get into a lot of details right now, but the F-15E is a much better ground support air craft for the ArmA 2 style as opposed to the F-16. I love the lawn dart, but it serves a better purpose for Wild Weasel missions as opposed to CAS missions.
