The Pixy F-15E Strike Eagle is the second aircraft of the Ace Combat Zero line, following the F-15E -CIPHER- which it is a relative of. As the name implies, it is based on the F-15C Eagle flown during the Belkan War by Larry "Solo Wing Pixy" Foulke, the second member of the 66th Air Force Unit "Galm". The plane's right wing is painted red to commemorate a combat incident in which Pixy lost his wing, barely managing to return to base afterwards.
The PIXY Strike Eagle shares a nearly identical performance alteration with CIPHER. However, air-to-air is slightly lowered in comparison, while stability is given a minor upgrade. As is the case with the latter, its weapons payload has not been changed. Furthermore, the plane's machine gun has been powered up with an increased rate of fire.
