    Unmasking The F-15X, Boeing's F-15C/D Eagle Replacement Fighter

    Only in very limited circumstances for autolanding but as for auto-takeoffs, never. There is no group out there that wants this. You may think flight can be more automated, sure. But the FAA / EASA will not sign off on it especially when the OEM's aren't even thinking of it either.

    Unmasking The F-15X, Boeing's F-15C/D Eagle Replacement Fighter

    So I'm just going to have to assume that there is no source. Got it. What are you talking about? There is zero details of any RFP. We do not know anything about what the DoD wants if there is even anything. Boeing tried pitching 2040C a little while ago and the DoD said no. No, these are...

    Unmasking The F-15X, Boeing's F-15C/D Eagle Replacement Fighter

    Source. I asked you to provide one. You came up with an arbitrary number of $50 million. So you didn't read the GAO report? You simply read other websites, correct? Do you understand that the Pentagon's F-35 office is not part of Lockheed Martin? The Pentagon was supposed to have 6 depots...

    Unmasking The F-15X, Boeing's F-15C/D Eagle Replacement Fighter

    No, it's not patently false. You're back to the F-15C. We're talking about F-15X a variation of the F-15E, not the F-15C. Again this is not about air superiority. What is the F-15X supposedly proposed for? Not Air Superiority. I get that when you hear F-15, you think Air Superiority. But...

    Unmasking The F-15X, Boeing's F-15C/D Eagle Replacement Fighter

    You can keep pointing out this but it's not going to change what I said. So I guess we can agree to disagree. You're thinking "Air Superiority" still. This proposal has nothing to do with air superiority. This is about being a missile carrier. In most of these cases, a KC-135 is on spot...

    Unmasking The F-15X, Boeing's F-15C/D Eagle Replacement Fighter

    What role deficit is that? The F-15X is not being pitched for air superiority. Again, this is all based on assumptions because there is no RFP yet. The F-15X is an F-15E variant if you look closely at the 2040C proposal, not an F-15C variant. How did you figure that it is cheaper to buy a...

    Unmasking The F-15X, Boeing's F-15C/D Eagle Replacement Fighter

    Yes and it would cost more than $30 billion to purchase. The Air Force also has a huge F-16 infrastructure and would also be cheap too. Since they’re asking for missile trucks.

    Unmasking The F-15X, Boeing's F-15C/D Eagle Replacement Fighter

    What? What are you talking about? 1. The F-22A still works fine and they’re not grounded at all. Now they've been modernizing them to include newer equipment. 2. The F-35 is already at mass production which more than 300 have been made. They are now at what’s called LRIP. The DoD is the one...

    Unmasking The F-15X, Boeing's F-15C/D Eagle Replacement Fighter

    We don't know that. The concept proposes to ditch the 2nd seat. We also don't know what radar they will incorporate which we assume it will carry the same Raytheon radar platform as the F-15E and F-15C does. What data is that? Boeing's SLEP proposal is $30-40 million per airframe when they...

    Unmasking The F-15X, Boeing's F-15C/D Eagle Replacement Fighter

    Or I don't need to change my avenue because I've been pretty consistent. Yes, the Viper is a parity for air superiority missions and can do the job. They also can claim parity as strike aircrafts because they do have that capability as well. What is it that you're saying the Viper doesn't do...

    Unmasking The F-15X, Boeing's F-15C/D Eagle Replacement Fighter

    The F-15X is apparently based on the 2040C concept which is an evolution of the F-15 Strike Eagle. It would be basically everything that's exactly what's in the F-15 Strike Eagle with all the updated advanced equipment and with the F100-PW-229 engines. We won't find out more details until next...
