ABSTRACT

Proposed Air Force Acquisition of New F-15EXs [March 19, 2019]   [open pdf - 520KB]

From the Document: "The Trump Administration's FY2020 budget proposal includes a request for $1.1 billion to buy 8 F-15EX aircraft, the first procurement toward a planned initial buy of 144. This proposal represents a change from previous Air Force plans to procure only stealthy 'fifth-generation' fighter aircraft. What is an F-15EX, and why might the Air Force have changed plans?"
