The 123rd Fighter Squadron, "Redhawks", is a unit of the Oregon Air National Guard 142nd Fighter Wing located at Portland Air National Guard Base, Oregon. The squadron is a descendant organization of the 123rd Observation Squadron formed on 30 July 1940. It was activated on 18 April 1941. The squadron transitioned from the F-4C Phantom II to the F-15A Eagle in 1985. Then, in 2005, the F-15A model was retired and the squadron received its current aircraft, the F-15C Eagle.

McDonnell Douglas F-15C 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.
