There was one F-15 model where they added Thrust vectoring to it and Canards and stuff. Can someone tell me what it was called and give me a picture of it

Yeah, thats the one, but they just wanted to develope the F-22 and JSF intead, they scrapped the "Super Tomcat" project too.

That ACTIVE is pretty sexy looking, I wonder what it would look like with camo rather than funky stripes...

Yeah, the striped camo is a pain to the eyes, and also, the canards look very rectangular in shape, if you know what I mean.

I can understand why they scraped the F-15 Active to go for the Raptor but I'm sad the Super Tomcat was cancelled too

Yeah, the Tomcat was the pride of the USAF...well...not really, but it is basically a symbol of the USAF/USN. After all, it looks sexy and mean, and if a movie requires military planes, they will probably get the F-14.

You must mean only the USN, since the USAF did not fly the Tomcat

Canards and thrust vectoring... that's exactly what they did to the Su-27 to make the Su-37. What a coincidence.

There is a delusion on this thread that the F-15ACTIVE was abandoned in favour of the F-22 etc. This is absolutely NOT the case. The F-15 ACTIVE was never intended as a service fighter at all. It was an experimental programme into fighter control and agility and the technologies it explored were all ones that were being considered for future US fighters, ATF among them.

It is parallel and equivalent to other similar 1980's programmes based on older types both in the US and overseas such as the Rockwell HiMAT (USA) F-16CCV (USA) Mitsubishi F-1CCV (Japan) MBB F-104CCV (Germany) and ACT Jaguar (UK) all of wich were configuration and control experiments for future all new designs, not intended for service.

Ah, well ok then. Anyway, most people still subconsiously believe that the F-14 is flown by the USAF. People who know nothing about military aviation.

I knew it was the F-15 active but i wanted the actual designation which is F-15S/MTD

Where does this designation come from and what does it stand for? Every source I have seen refers only to 'F-15ACTIVE' even NASA's own site only carries that designation so I'm curious.

Its ok I did a search. 'Short take off/Manoevre Technology Demonstrator.

Actually every single site I found that showed that designation was either Japanese or Russian, kinda tells me that it wasn't really called that at all. F-15 ACTIVE is however official.

i watched a video on it and it reffered to it as F15S/MTD but apparently F-15 Active is official and F15S/MTD is something unofficial.

Oh... it was an experimental project to test out new and multiple systems and tech, I guess it makes sense now, that NASA was doing it.
I’m curious to see some specs of its performance if anyone can find them.

the maneuverability was incomprehendable almost .
