F-15EX gets tentative go-ahead

It looks like the US Air Force will get the go-ahead to commence procurement of the new Boeing F-15EX. However, a House Armed Services subcommittee said on June 3 that only two jets will be funded until the air force submits the full acquisition strategy and support information required to support such a major proposed project.

The USAF requested $1.1 billion for eight F-15EXs, but only two will initially be funded until the Air Force Secretary submits full development, acquisition, and fielding plans to Congress.

A formal decision is expected today.
