RSAF Rolls Out First F-15SG Multi-Role Fighter Aircraft
 
The Republic of Singapore Air Force (RSAF) rolled out its first F-15SG multi-role fighter aircraft at a ceremony on 3 Nov at St. Louis, Missouri, United States. The F-15SG roll-out marks yet another significant milestone in the transformation of the RSAF into a 3rd Generation Air Force.
Equipped with state-of-the-art avionics and a sophisticated integrated sensor suite, the F-15SG is the most advanced variant of the F-15 aircraft built to date.
With its ability to carry a large payload of weapons and fuel to give it increased firepower and combat endurance, the F-15SG will provide the 3rd Generation SAF with enhanced air defence and air superiority capabilities.
The RSAF has acquired a total of 24 F-15SG aircraft. The first batch of F-15SG aircraft will be delivered to the RSAF's detachment at the Mountain Home Air Force Base, Idaho, United States, next year.
Chief of Air Force, Major-General Ng Chee Khern, officiated at the F-15SG roll-out ceremony, which was attended by Singapore and US representatives of the respective air forces and defence establishments.
