The sale was finalized last December when the Saudis signed a letter of offer and acceptance for a package of 84 new jets, upgrades to 70 older F-15S fighters, and associated weapons systems and sensors.
The F-15SA is one of the most advanced variants of the Eagle ever built. The aircraft are equipped with a Raytheon APG-63(V)3 active electronically scanned array radar and twin General Electric F110-129 turbofans, among a host other advanced hardware.
The F-15SA is also the first version of the Eagle with a fly-by-wire flight control system
