Report: Boeing Selling New F-15 Variant to USAF - top government contractors - best government contracting eventBoeing is offering to sell the U.S. Air Force a new high-performance version of the F-15 aircraft with more modern features, Defense One reported Wednesday.

The F-15X is equipped with new flight controls, cockpit displays and radar and has the capacity to hold over 24 air-to-air missiles, the report noted.

“We see the marketplace expanding internationally and it's creating opportunities, then to go back and talk to the U.S. Air Force about what might be future upgrades or even potentially future acquisitions of the F-15 aircraft,“ Gene Cunningham, Boeing’s vice president of global sales of defense, space and security, told Defense One at the Royal International Air Tattoo in England.

The pitch follows the aerospace firm’s previous effort to persuade the Trump administration to purchase more Super Hornet aircraft for the U.S. Navy.
