The Mitsubishi F-15J/DJ Eagle is a twin-engine, all-weather air superiority fighter based on the McDonnell Douglas F-15 Eagle in use by the Japan Air Self-Defense Force (JASDF). The F-15J was produced under license by Mitsubishi Heavy Industries. The subsequent F-15DJ and F-15J Kai variants were also produced. Japan is the largest customer of the F-15 Eagle outside the United States. In addition to combat, F-15DJ roles include training. The F-15J Kai is a modernized version of the F-15J. Primary Role: Air Superiority Fighter.
Presently Japan operates approximately 155 F-15J aircraft assigned to four wings consisting of seven operational squadrons. These wings are located at Chitose, Komatsu, Nyutabaru and Naha. Also the 23rd Training Squadron has five F-15s that act as aggressors. A JASDF annual TAC Meet (Tactical Air Combat) is held to hone the skills of air crews as well as ground and support crews. In 2003 the 303rd TFS’ (Fighting Dragon) entry was F-15J 72-8963 wearing a spectacular scheme of a White Dragon (Hakuryu) meant to strike fear into anyone who looked upon it.
