Description official descriptions

The seven missions featured in this simulation of F-15 flight are all real-life missions the plane was originally used in.

There is an arcade mode and 3 further difficulty levels. The game features 3 enemy aircraft and 3 types of enemy SAMs.

Arcade mode

For the severely coordination-challenged, there is an arcade mode in the game. It differs from the regular mode in that it does not allow banking; rudder turns only. If the player got hit into a slight bank, they're stuck in that bank.


In real-life, the F-15 is a land-based aircraft, but apparently not in this sim, as the player can takeoff and land on a carrier.


F-15 Strike Eagle is one of the few games to support EGA's nearly-unknown 160x200x16 mode.
