The equipment will be offered in two versions – one for use on the F-15C/D aircraft, and the other for use on the heavier F-15E aircraft. Both are similar designs and have many parts in common.
"We are honored to deliver advanced wheels and brakes to our military, and look forward to providing increased performance and capability for the F-15 Eagle fleet," said Casey Canan, military group program manager for UTC Aerospace Systems Landing Systems. "The UTC Aerospace Systems F-15 main wheel and brake design and innovative technology provide improved thermal management for reduced life cycle cost."
The $22 million U.S. Air Force contract was awarded in November 2014.
