Boeing has recently released images depicting weapon configurations developed for the F-15, that are likely to support the F-15SA, the most advanced variant of the F-15E fighter aircraft for the Royal Saudi Air Force (RSAF). The aircraft depicted in these photos carry 26 weapons of six different types.
A multi-billion arms deal offered by the US to key Middle-East allies bundles advanced fighter planes, strike weapons, radars and special mission aircraft, sold separately to Israel, Saudi Arabia and the UAE. Convinces the UAE to increase the number of their Desert Falcons, instead of buying Rafale or Typhoons could derail European sales efforts in the region. Likewise, offerring radars and surplus USAF tankers to Israel would hurt Israeli efforts to soffer its own tankers, converted from commercial aircraft.
