Singapore buys Boeing F-15 fighter jets

ST. LOUIS, 13 Dec. 2005. The Government of Singapore awarded Boeing a contract to produce twelve F-15SG aircraft for the country's next generation replacement fighter jet, and an option for eight additional aircraft at a future date.

The F-15SG is an advanced version of the U.S. Air Force's F-15E Strike Eagle.

"We have been working toward this moment for several years and are excited and honored to provide the people of Singapore with the F-15SG, which will be equipped with the most technologically advanced avionics and weapons systems available," said Joe Hoerter, vice president of the Boeing F-15 Program.

"Boeing will begin delivering the aircraft in 2008, which will allow the Republic of Singapore Air Force to begin replacing its retired A-4SU Skyhawks. All 12 aircraft will be delivered in 2008 and 2009."

Boeing has produced more than 1,500 F-15s during the past three decades. In addition to the United States, Korea, Japan, Saudi Arabia and Israel operate F-15 fleets.
