In 1967 the U.S. became aware of the Soviet MiG-25 Foxbat. This made it necessary to develop a new aircraft to counter the MiG-25. The USAF rejected the USN F-14 Tomcat and issued its own requirements. The solution came in the form of the McDonnell-Douglas (now Boeing) F-15 Eagle. The F-15A made its inaugural flight in July 1972 and in January 1976 the first Eagle entered service. The “E” entered service in 1989. The F-15 was the first dedicated USAF air superiority fighter since the F-86 Sabre.

The Republic of Singapore Air Force has two squadrons of F-15SG, 142nd Sqn “Gryphon” and 149th “Shikra” (Sparrow Hawk) based at Paya Lebar, AB. The F-15SG is an advanced variant of the F-15E Strike Eagle and can perform air-to-air and air-to-ground attack missions in all weather conditions. The 142nd Squadron’s motto is “Honor and Glory” and the Gryphon chosen as their mascot because its body parts are those of kings of the animal world. The squadron had been disbanded but reactivated in 2016 when the F-15SGs arrived.
