Singapore orders more F-15SG aircrafts

The Singapore Ministry of Defenses has exercised an option to purchase eight F-15SG and has ordered four aditional aircraft. The option is part of the original contract for 12 F-15SG aircraft announced by Singapore in 2005.
The Boeing F-15SG is a derivative of the U.S. Air Force F 15E Strike Eagle, the worlds most capable long-range, multi-role fighter. It can simultaneously perform air-to-ground and air-to-air missions during day or night, in virtually any weather. It carries significant payload, reaches speeds in excess of Mach 2 and incorporates some of the most advanced military technologies. Integration and flight testing of the F-15SG will be performed at Boeing facilities in St. Louis and Palmdale, Calif., beginning in November.
Boeing has produced more than 1,500 F-15s. In addition to the United States, Korea, Japan, Saudi Arabia and Israel operate F-15 fleets.
This is a great news for the giant american aircraft constructor, due to there is a big competition in the combat aircrafts market nowadays and every order is considered as a victory over the competitors.
