Israeli F-15 Eagle Units in Combat

Overview

Bought in the mid-1970s to secure air superiority for Israel in the Middle East for decades to come, the F-15 Eagle has indeed been the unrivalled master of the skies since its arrival in December 1976.

Overview

Bought in the mid-1970s to secure air superiority for Israel in the Middle East for decades to come, the F-15 Eagle has indeed been the unrivalled master of the skies since its arrival in December 1976. The fighter claimed its first kills three years later in the disputed airspace over southern Lebanon, when the IDF/AF skirmished with the Syrian Air Force. When full-scale war broke out between Israel and Syria in June 1982, the IDF/AF's solitary F-15 squadron cut a swathe through the ranks of Syrian MiG-21s and MiG-23s. Between 7 and 11 June, the Double Tail Squadron claimed 33 aircraft destroyed without loss. From this conflict emerged the world's first, and only, F-15 aces. In the 1980s, the air superiority fighters were also modified to perform long-range precision bombing strikes, and their mission capability was significantly boosted with the arrival of the awesome two-seat F-151 Roam in 1998.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Shlomo Aloni has done an excellent job of interviewing former Israeli Eagle pilots and cataloguing the early kills of the F-15 in the service of the Israeli air arm... I would certainly recommend Israeli F-15 Eagle Units in Combat as a good introduction to Israeli Eagle operations from 1976 to the mid-1980s." - Steve Davies, Scale Aircraft Modelling (January 2008)
