If I were an Eagle driver and saw some Su-30s coming, I'd do just that. Get the flock out of there! Wasn't the F-15 originally designed to intercept the MiG-25? That's a whole different type of fight. I know the F-15 is capable, but I think it's pushing it (especially racked for bombs) to go up against a Flanker.
That's just it, your not and they will not. American F-15 pilots regularly train with and against German pilots in Mig-29s. Eagle pilots know their strengths and weaknesses but also know every other planes weaknesses and strengths. Eagle pilots will make it their fight every time and win when the enemy shats its pants and screws up one little time. They are masters in combat tactics and can push those planes past 11 Gs so they are hardly pushovers.
In the war with Georgia it took the Russian pilots 3 days to hit one little pipeline junction building lol. Hardly aces.
