Tom Clancy Drool-Fest

The F-15SE “Silent Eagle” is a hot little number from Boeing. Call it a “Generation 4.5” fighter. It’s not super-stealthy like the F-22, but it does make use of radar-absorbing materials and internal weapons bays — resulting in a fighter much more stealthy than a standard F-15. It also doesn’t have the F-22s ability to supercruise, but it’s plenty fast. The Silent Eagle is meant for export to countries that don’t want to spend the money on the F-35. Countries like South Korea.

Here’s a promotional video made for our friends in Seoul.
