Singapore — Boeing and the Republic of Singapore Celebrate F‑15SGs’ Arrival in Singapore

ST. LOUIS, Boe­ing [NYSE: BA] and the Repub­lic of Sin­ga­pore Air Force (RSAF) on April 5 cel­e­brat­ed the arrival of the RSAF’s first five F‑15SG air­craft at Paya Lebar Air Base, Sin­ga­pore, where the air­craft were for­mal­ly induct­ed into the F‑15SG squadron.

The F‑15SGs returned to Sin­ga­pore from Moun­tain Home Air Force Base, Ida­ho, fol­low­ing 10 months of rig­or­ous air-to-air and air-to-ground test­ing and devel­op­ment pro­grams with the U.S. Air Force/RSAF 428th Fight­er Squadron.

“The F‑15SG is the newest, most tech­no­log­i­cal­ly advanced mul­ti­role F‑15 air­craft ever built,” said Mark Bass, Boe­ing F‑15 Pro­gram vice pres­i­dent. “It pro­vides a new capa­bil­i­ty that enables Sin­ga­pore to defend its sov­er­eign­ty as one of the most strate­gi­cal­ly impor­tant glob­al trade regions in the world.”

The F‑15SG’s speed, pow­er and agili­ty make it the ulti­mate mul­ti­role fight­er. Ver­sa­tile in all mis­sions, the F‑15SG moves the RSAF into the next-gen­er­a­tion force.

The F‑15SG’s inte­grat­ed sen­sor suite, which includes an Active Elec­tron­i­cal­ly Scanned Array (AESA) radar and a third-gen­er­a­tion SNIPER tar­get­ing pod, will pro­vide the RSAF with long-range air-to-air and air-to-ground capa­bil­i­ties. Its state-of-the-art cock­pit, advanced avion­ics and Joint Hel­met Mount­ed Cue­ing Sys­tem pro­vide increased sit­u­a­tion­al aware­ness and enhanced air-to-air and self-defense capa­bil­i­ties.

RSAF pilots, weapon sys­tems offi­cers and ground crew per­son­nel were relo­cat­ed to Moun­tain Home in 2008 to set up the joint 428th Fight­er Squadron. On Nov. 19, the U.S. Air Force and RSAF cel­e­brat­ed the inau­gu­ra­tion of the 428th with a cer­e­mo­ny at the base.

A unit of The Boe­ing Com­pa­ny, Boe­ing Defense, Space & Secu­ri­ty is one of the world’s largest defense, space and secu­ri­ty busi­ness­es spe­cial­iz­ing in inno­v­a­tive and capa­bil­i­ties-dri­ven cus­tomer solu­tions, and the world’s largest and most ver­sa­tile man­u­fac­tur­er of mil­i­tary air­craft.
