The F-15SG is the most advanced version of the Eagle with its great speed, maneuverability, electronics and weapons.
The Republic of Singapore Air Force has two squadrons of F-15SG, 142nd Sqn “Gryphon” and 149th “Shikra” (Sparrow Hawk) based at Paya Lebar, AB. The F-15SG is an advanced variant of the F-15E Strike Eagle and can perform air-to-air and air-to-ground attack missions in all weather conditions. The 142nd Squadron’s motto is “Honor and Glory” and the Gryphon chosen as their mascot because its body parts are those of kings of the animal world. The squadron had been disbanded but reactivated in 2016 when the F-15SGs arrived.
