An F-15 with canards? That is too cool . They even have quite a bit of dihedral angle it looks like. Almost like the mounting system is failing. lol

Mmm the f-15MTD is my favorite version, the one with 2-D thrust vectoring because the exhausts look so cool

They were trying to go with canards on the F-15 to counter the new Sukhoi made by the Russians since it is superior to the F-22 raptor, and F-35 JSF. The F-15 was/is far superior to the F-22 even without its canards!

The NASA white version would allow for a lighter weight as you're already starting with white depron. Only the red and blue need be added.

Supperior in what way? All sorties with 5-f15s against 1 raptor were ALL won by the single raptor...I have plenty of video with f15 pilots saying they could not find the raptor until they flew by after the simulated fights...
Youtube-secrets of future airpower-all the pilots are in this video talking about the facts...
But of course we all have our favorites.....

Heres a good F15 documentary
