The most innovative fighter F-15QA made its first flight

The most innovative F-15QA fighter made its first flight. This is stated in the message of the company Boeing – the developer of this combat aircraft.

Tests of the F-15QA fighter for the BBC Qatar passed April 14, 2020. As part of the test, the aircraft made a 90-minute flight. The device took off and landed at the Lambert International Airport in St. Louis.

The F-15QA is equipped with the modern Raytheon AN / APG-63 (v) 3 radar with an active array, phased antenna, and two General Electric GE F110-129 engines. The device may have a large number of weapon installation circuits, like other aircraft of the F-15 type.

Qatar is due to receive 36 such machines from Boeing in the coming years. In terms of functionality, the devices are similar to the F-15SA aircraft, which were recently put into service in Saudi Arabia, and the promising F-15EX, which the US Air Force can get.
