      it wasn't supposed to be manned
      >In 2006, Boeing proposed a similar concept for missile launch, this time using an unmanned variant of the F-15E Strike Eagle with the launch vehicle mounted dorsally instead of ventrally. Boeing designated this variant as the F-15 Global Strike Eagle (GSE).

        would this have actually been a decent fighter in WW2? Doesn't seem very maneuverable to me

          It doesnt need to be hyper maneuverable when it can outrun and outclimb you.
          That being said it was a concept ahead of its time

          damn thing is an entire wing with a frame made of wood. I'm sure it could turn, but every other axis of movement (roll and yaw) I'm sure it was ass at

          I thought it was meant as a bomber interceptor? Just needs to climb high and dive on slow moving bomber formations.

            >but muh jet engerinos
            retard, the autists back in lockheed were already flying jet aircraft before this shitbox was captured
            >but muh claimed stealtherino coat
            bullshit, radar was in its infancy back in the day, and northrop even did a study back in the 2010's and found out it was bullshit.

            If this crap was so valuable, why didn't the retards behind it came to america with operation paperclip?

              Pure unadulterated Amerimutt cope, Jack Northrop was making propshit when nazis were way ahead of them in flying wings. If you're gonna cope about muh first then look at the Dunne D1 which was the brits.

    Speaking of which, I read this week that Air Force won't be outfitting F-15 with conformal fuel cells.
    https://www.thedrive.com/the-war-zone/no-conformal-fuel-tanks-for-first-f-15ex-operational-units
    > conformal fuel tanks extend range
    > aero efficient
    > also provide multiple additional hardpoints for holding air-to-air, air-to-ground munitions
    More gas and more munitions, more capabale
    chAir Force doesn't want it.
    Cynical thought: chAir Force wants to get rid of the F-15 and dump all "savings" to Next Gen Sexy Weapons Platform.
    Key West accord of '47 was a mistake.

      More likely that they Know they will be handed down within their service life to the Air Nat Guard and don't want the Air guard to, even inb theory, be able to reach out an touch another nation
