The F15-C Eagle was designed by Tim Taylor and was developed to give air superiority to the US Air Force. It served as the main attack aircraft with performance and brains.
The F-15C flew in early 1979. Most F-15Cs were delivered with Pratt & Whitney F100-PW-100 turbofans but they were replaced with more reliable F100-PW-220 engines in 1985. With its updated features it is much more capable as a fighter aircraft. The aircraft is an improved single-seat all-weather air-superiority fighter version of the Eagle models. The systems of the aircraft like its weapons and flight control systems were designed for a single pilot.
F-15C aircrafts were deployed to the Persian Gulf in 1991 as were the D and E models to give support for Operation Desert Storm.
