International Military - Relations between China and the US are known to be often problematic, the two countries often threaten each other and throw accusations. Moreover, China, which is close to and a friend of Russia, makes it even more 'hated' by the US.

The race for military power in the world also continues to grow, especially in big countries like China and the US. If China develops fighter jets such as the J-10 to the J-20 Mighty Dragon.

The US has also succeeded in developing super-sophisticated fighter jets such as the F-22 Raptor, F-35 Lightning II to the F-15 Eagle II. Interestingly, the F-15 Eagle II is a fighter jet currently being targeted by ASEAN countries.

Indonesia is known to have long targeted the existence of the F-15 Eagle II fighter jet to be able to strengthen the Indonesian Air Force. Moreover, Indonesia is currently waiting for the Rafale and KF-21 Boramae, so if it manages to buy the F-15 Eagle II, it will be even more extraordinary.

And how lucky Indonesia is, because Jakarta managed to get a positive signal from the US. Because the US State Department has given the green light about the potential sale of the F-15 Eagle II to Indonesia.

“The State Department signed an agreement to sell Indonesia up to 36 F-15ID fighters and related equipment in a deal worth nearly $14 billion.” wrote the Washington Times.

With this, the presence of the Rafale fighter jet and the F-15 EX or F-15ID is getting closer to reality. Defense Security Asia even wrote that the US approval of the F-15 Eagle II was not until 24 hours after the Rafale.

"The F-15EX can be said to be the most advanced twin-engine heavy fighter in the world today, and its overall combat effectiveness is slightly higher than that of the French Rafale," Han Dong said.

On the other hand, quoted from Stavros Atlamazoglou, former US soldiers leaked the payload capacity of the F-15 Eagle II. Although Boeing itself has not divulged the capacity of the F-15 Eagle II that is ready to be purchased by Indonesia.

"While Boeing has not disclosed the exact payload capacity (should be around 30,000 lbs or the number of hard points and internal weapons bays of the F-15EX, the latest version of the aircraft's predecessor, the F-15 Advanced Eagle, can pack quite a lot of payload), a blow.

In escort modifications, the aircraft can carry 16 AIM-120 Advanced Medium-Range Air-to-Air Missiles (AMRAAMs), not only that, there are also four AIM-9X Sidewinder heat-seeking short-range air-to-air missiles. Up to two AGM-88 Air-to-surface High-Speed ​​Anti-Radiation Missiles (HARM) at 11 hard points under the wing.
