Garuda 1 (Talisman) and Garuda 2 (Shamrock) in their F-15E Strike Eagles up high above the clouds over Emmeria.
As many of you may know, the F-15E Strike Eagle is considered by some to be Garuda Team's signature aircraft, as can be seen in the trailers, promotional artwork and packaging art for Ace Combat 6.
The Strike Eagle, nicknamed "Beagle" (as in Bomb Eagle) by some, is considered to be the most ultimate F-15 variant to date, possessing both outstanding air and ground attack capabilities. Downgraded/upgraded variants of this amazing fighter are used by other countries such as Israel (F-15I), Saudi Arabia (F-15S), and South Korea (F-15K). Singapore will soon be receiving its own variant, the F-15SG, sometime between 2008-2009.
In the Ace Combat series, the F-15E made its first appearance in Ace Combat 2 as a non-playable enemy aircraft. Since then, it has appeared in succeeding games (except for Ace Combat 3 and Ace Combat Advance) as a playable aircraft, with interchangeable special weaponry (except in Ace Combat 5).
