Trivia

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.

F-15

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.

Graphics

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