US, WASHINGTON (ORDO NEWS) — On April 14, Boeing successfully carried out the first flight tests of the F-15QA, which the corporation calls “the most advanced version of the jet aircraft (F-15. – Ed.) Ever produced.”
Designed specifically for the Qatar Air Force, the fighter demonstrated its capabilities during a 90-minute flight. The car took off and landed at the Lambert International Airport in St. Louis.
The F-15QA has taken flight for the first time. This fighter is the most advanced version of the undefeated #F15 and was built for @MOD_Qatar’s Qatar Emiri Air Force.

It is known that the F-15QA fighter is equipped with the modern Raytheon AN / APG-63 (v) 3 radar with an active phased antenna array and two General Electric GE F110-129 engines.
Like other modern versions of the F-15, it can use a wide range of weapons. In total, under the contract concluded in 2017, Qatar should receive 36 such machines.
Recall, in December last year, the first serial fighter JAS 39E for Sweden took to the skies.
