I read that the USN has done study on a Navy version of the F-15 called the F-15N. As a some what Fan of the F-15, I was curius about how a carrier version of the F-15 looks. I know it had to have, a twin wheel nose gear and a strouger main gear. Also it had to have a different wing. If anybody has any info on the F-15N, please post it? thank you.

Why not just buy a few SU-30s from somewhere

What's wrong with using the older F/A-18C/Ds as larger aggressor aircraft? Buying a specialized F-15 for this role doesn't make much sense, especially with all the 'success' they had with the F-16N.

No. This was a carrier base plane.

Are you talking about the navalized F-15 that McDonnell Douglas offered the Navy about the time the Tomcat was still fairly new? Would have featured Phoenix missile armament but as I recall the additional weight would have so badly taken away from the Eagle's stellar performance the Navy declined development.
