F-15X

It looks like the USAF is actually going to buy 80 F-15Xs over the next 5 years.  This seems to make a lot of sense to me.  I suspect it will spur other countries who aren’t yet ready to upgrade to the F-35 to buy the F-15Xs.

Read both.  I tend to come down on the good idea side, but let me know what you think.

The USAF is upgrading its “bunker buster” bombs.  I predict we’ll test these in Afghanistan soon and I’ll be interested to see if we supply them to the Israelis as well.

Looks like this proposal is being considered again.  I think it makes sense.

The USAF is looking to equip F-15s with laser weapons.  Story here.  Interesting if they can do it.
