MINDEF - News - RSAF’S F-15SG Fighter Aircraft Arrive at Mountain Home Air Force Base (07 May 09).
The Republic of Singapore Air Force (RSAF) detachment at Mountain Home Air Force Base (MHAFB) in Idaho, United States, received the first batch of four F-15SG multi-role fighter aircraft today. This marks the beginning of RSAF F-15 training at MHAFB. Prior to this, the RSAF pilots have been undergoing F-15 training with their USAF counterparts in Seymour Johnson Air Force base in North Carolina, United States.
The delivery of the RSAF’s F-15SG aircraft is another significant milestone in the RSAF’s transformation into the 3rd Generation Air Force. Equipped with state-of-the-art avionics and a sophisticated integrated sensor suite, the F-15SG is the most advanced variant of the F-15 aircraft built to date. With its ability to carry a large payload of weapons and fuel to give it increased firepower and combat endurance, the F-15SG will provide the Singapore Armed Forces with enhanced air defence and air superiority capabilities.
