Ace Combat 04: Shattered SkiesEdit
- "The most manoeuvrable F-15 with thrust vectoring nozzles, ACTIVE, and forward-swept wings."
- ―In-game description
The ACTIVE, performance-wise is a relatively balaced aircraft. It has a high Air-to-Air rating, high stability and speed and maximum mobility. As well, it has high defense. However, air-to-ground is low. It is armed with seventy-eight missiles and a machine gun with 900 rounds. It can be armed with the XMAA multi-lock weapon and the Fuel Air Explosive Bomb, allowing it to engage both air and ground threats.
Ace Combat 5: The Unsung WarEdit
In Ace Combat 5: The Unsung War, the F-15S/MTD is a high-end fighter aircraft. It is the third and final aircraft of the Eagle aircraft family, and is unlocked alongside the F-15E Strike Eagle upon filling the Kill Rate Gauge of the F-15C (95,450 pts.) A single unit is worth 22,700$ credits.
Of the three Eagle aircraft, it is the one centered the most on air-to-air combat, which is reflected by its statistics; 94 Air-to-Air points and 58 Air-to-Ground points, the latter being a minor yet nonetheless important upgrade over the F-15C's meager secore of 38. The streamlined and aerodynamic design provides the S/MTD with a high 89-point Mobility rating. On the downside, its defense is rather average. It is armed with 82 missiles and 14 XMAAs.
Ace Combat Zero: The Belkan WarEdit
The F-15S/MTD is unlocked along with the special color after completing mission 16 in Mercenary Ace Style. It is an excellent dogfighter, with stats inherited from those in Ace Combat 5.
