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.


The F-15S/MTD (Short Takeoff and Landing/Maneuver Technology Demonstrator) was the first of three projects using this aircraft. This same aircraft would later be used in the F-15 ACTIVE (Advanced Control Technology for Integrated Vehicles) program from 1993-1999 and the F-15 IFCS (Intelligent Flight Control System) program in 2002.

Here is a webpage about it

There are two versions: The first is F-15 S/MTD (STOL (Short Takeoff and Landing) / Maneuver Technology Demonstrator) who had 2D thrust vectoring, working only in the vertical axis (the nozzels have rectangular shape)

f104.ath.cx...

The second version is F-15 ACTIVE (Advanced Control Technology for Integrated Vehicles), who has 3D thrust vectoring, working in all angles (the nozzels have round shape).

As a comparison, the russian equivalent of the Eagle, the SU-27, has the following versions with thrust vectoring : Su-37 "Flanker-F", Su-30MKI "Flanker-H", Su-30MKM "Flanker-H", who have only 2D thrust vectoring.

two versions indeed but only one aircraft,




This same aircraft would later be used in the F-15 ACTIVE (Advanced Control Technology for Integrated Vehicles) from 1993–1999, and later in the Intelligent Flight Control System programs from 1999 to 2008. With the help of thrust vectoring nozzles, this aircraft can perform the famous Pugachev's Cobra maneuver.
