November 5: Boeing confirmed that the first four F-15Cs upgraded with the Raytheon APG-63(V)3 Active Electronically Scanned Array (AESA) radar were delivered to the US Air Force at Kadena Air Base in Japan on October 21.

Boeing is under contract to upgrade 27 Air Force and 18 Air National Guard F-15C/D aircraft with the APG-63(V)3 AESA over the next ten months. "The fielded APG-63(V)3 air-to-air capabilities put the F-15C/D in a class by itself and ensure that the Air Force and Air National Guard F-15C/D fleets remain capable, maintainable and affordable," said Todd Burns, F-15C AESA Programme Manager for Boeing.

The APG-63(V)3 radar is the latest in a series of planned upgrades for the F-15C/D and further upgrades will include a data link, GPS navigation and the Joint Helmet Mounted Cueing System.
