Presently Japan operates approximately 155 F-15J aircraft assigned to four wings consisting of seven operational squadrons. These wings are located at Chitose, Komatsu, Nyutabaru and Naha. Also the 23rd Training Squadron has five F-15s that act as aggressors. A JASDF annual TAC Meet (Tactical Air Combat) is held to hone the skills of air crews as well as ground and support crews. In 2003 the 303rd TFS' (Fighting Dragon) entry was F-15J 72-8963 wearing a spectacular scheme of a White Dragon (Hakuryu) meant to strike fear into anyone who looked upon it.

Mitsubishi F-15J 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 Master’s 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.
