chuck540z3 Posted June 21, 2016 Share Posted June 21, 2016 I have a question for the Eagle experts. According to Jake's Eagle books, the Eagle engines went from the F100-PW-100 engine to the more reliable 220 engine, which is now on most F-15A/B/C & D versions, as well as some F-15E's. On the heavier F-15E, the Increased Performance Engine (IPE) 229 engine is on many jets, but not all. Fine. Now the query. Here's a pic of my current modeling subject, an Aggressor F-15C, taken in Nov, 2007 at Nellis. Note the front of the engine intake which is not covered for a change... A shot from the front of the intake.... A shot of the front fan.... Now the curious discovery. According to a few pics in Jake's Modern Eagle Guide books (#1 and #2), this is the front of the IPE 229 engine- on an F-15C! Since this is an Aggressor Eagle and no doubt needs some extra oomph to dogfight almost every day, it would make sense that the engines might be upgraded, but I want to make sure before I commit to engine intake and exhaust options that are unique to the 229. Anybody know for sure if this a 229? Thanks, Chuck Quote Link to post Share on other sites
