I know a couple years back Boeing unveiled the F-15 Silent Eagle, and there was alot of buzz about potential countries to buy it. Are there any new developments with it at this time, or has Boeing put the project to rest?
Quote: "Boeing has received a previously announced contract worth $11.4 billion to supply Saudi Arabia with 84 F-15SA Strike Eagle fighters, the US military announced on 8 March.
'This particular undefinitsed contract action covers development efforts for the new aircraft and retrofit as well as procurement of the 84 new production aircraft,' the announcement reads. 'Work is expected to be completed October 2020.'
The sale was finalised last December when the Saudis signed a letter of offer and acceptance for a package of 84 new jets, upgrades to 70 older F-15S fighters, and associated weapons systems and sensors."
As for the Silent Eagle, things are still relatively "quiet" on the South Korean "front".....
