Boeing unveiled a new variant of the F-15 fighter called the F-15SE, which stands for “Silent Eagle,” March 17, 2009. The company claims that the aircraft can meet the same degree of stealth as export versions of the Lockheed Martin F-35 via conformal pallets that can carry weapons and fuel internally as well as additional innovations. Shown here (left), the Silent Eagle with it left conformal pallet open to show two missiles carried internally, and (right) a close up of the conformal pallet.
