The Royal Saudi Air Force purchased 72 F-15S's comprised of 48 aircraft set up to specialize in air-to-ground missions and 24 for air intercept roles. The maiden flight of the F-15s took place on June 19, 1995 with the official roll out took place on September 12, 1995. The last F-15S was delivered on November 10, 1999. The twenty first F-15S was 93-0872 Saudi serial S21 and delivered in August 1997. 93-0872 is assigned to the 6th Squadron/5th Wing located at Khamis Mushait (King Khalid Air Base).

Boeing F-15S Strike Eagle

Designed to meet US Air Force requirements for an air superiority fighter to replace the F-4 Phantom, the F-15 Eagle first flew on July 27, 1972. The Air Force needed a fighter that could engage long range targets, a skill the F-4 did not possess. The F-15 has a pulse-Doppler radar system, which can track small high-speed targets up to 120 nautical miles away and can lock its missile onto targets up to 50 nautical miles away. With more than 100 aerial combat victories, the F-15 is said to be one of the most successful modern fighters. It is expected to remain in service until 2025.

Hobby Masterís 1:72 scale F-15 is produced with a high metal content using state-of-the-art manufacturing techniques. The model features near seamless construction as seen on all Hobby Master products, and this is particularly evident with the tight-fitting conformal fuel tanks present on the F-15E variant. Separate open and closed canopy and speed brakes are included, yielding uncompromising detail that functional hinges would lack at this scale. Other fine features include a detailed cockpit interior, a variety of ordnance and drop tanks appropriate to the paint-scheme and landing gear that constructed as completed subassemblies for easy installation.
