Range of rockets fired from F-15 breaks records


The American press published notes about the "unique" missile tests conducted by the US Air Force at the Eglin test site. It is indicated that an F-15 fighter taken into the air from Tyndall airbase in Florida took part in the tests.

From materials provided by the USAF:

The F-15C Eagle Air Force fighter performed a record-breaking missile launch. The result of the missile launch was the defeat of the BQM-167 "Skeeter" drone, which acts as a target.

There is no specific data on how far the missile was fired by an American Air Force fighter.

According to some sources, a modification of the AIM-120D AMRAAM rocket was launched. It is known to be capable of covering a distance of 100 miles (about 161 km) to a target.

Air target characteristics

UAV BQM-167 "Skeeter" is equipped with a MicroTurbo Tri 60-5 + engine. Its maximum speed is 0,92 M (about 1.1 thousand km / h). The maximum altitude is 15 thousand meters. The drone retains the ability to maneuver at overloads up to 9 g. At the same time, he can shoot off heat traps, moving away from the ammunition fired at him.

Soldiers from the 28th Test and Assessment Squadron and the 83rd Air Force Fighter Squadron took part in missile tests in the United States. The reports say that the Air Force is working to increase the range of destruction of targets, "to reduce the risks associated with the activities of enemy air defense systems."

Instant does not fire at all

The range of missiles launched from the F-15 breaks records ... And separated by commas .. There is no specific data on how far the missile was fired by an American Air Force fighter.
Then - it seems to be 161 km .. So we have a MIG for 200 km already shoots.
