F-15 Month’ concludes with an in-depth look at the two-seat strike-fighter Eagle variant. Whereas the A-D models profess to not have a “pound for air-to-ground,” the Boeing F-15E Strike Eagle was designed to sling mud from the get-go. And it does it exceedingly well!

On this episode, a F-15E pilot and WSO crew, Lieutenant Colonel Richard “TAC” Turner and Captain Mark “Smack” Smith, both active duty U.S. Air Force, tell us all about the mighty “Mud Hen” including how one scored an air-to-air kill with a laser-guided bomb.
