On January 27, 1994, the Israeli government announced that they intended to purchase the F-15I, which was a version of the F-15E Strike Eagle designed specifically for Israel. The F-15I is similar to the F-15E, but has some electronic components adjusted to meet Israeli requirements. Many of these components are to be built in Israel. A contract was signed on May 12, 1994 between the governments of the United States and Israel authorizing McDonnell Douglas to build 21 F-15Is for the IDFAF. This image depicts two F-15I Ra'ams Refueling from a KC-10 Extender.
