It would be fair to say that the F/A-18E/F employs the most extensive radar cross section reduction measures of any contemporary fighter, other than the very low observable F-22 and planned JSF. While the F/A-18E/F is not a true stealth fighter like the F-22, it will have a forward sector RCS arguably an order of magnitude smaller than seventies designed fighters. Since every deciBel of RCS reduction counts until you get into the range of weapon payload RCS, the F/A-18E/F represents the reasonable limit of what is worth doing on a fighter carrying external stores. None of the RCS reduction features employed in the F/A-18E/F are visible on any of the three Eurocanards, which raises interesting questions about the relative forward sector RCS reduction performance of these types.
Im as big of a proponent of US aircraft as anyone, but the Typhoon is better then the Eagle, bottom line.

But you asked for one thing Typhoon can do which the F-15 can't. I gave you two, though with resaearch I could provide some more no doubt.
On the other hand you say that the F-15 can do 'pretty much' everything the Typhoon can. Wow, impressive.
You also qualify this statement (as always) with 'as of right now'.

Look, I have no doubt in my mind that the Typhoon will be superior to the F-15 within the next 5-10 years. But I keep saying the "as of right now" because you keep saying that the Typhoon is the "2nd best fighter right now" when it's not.

Amazing direction of this thread. OK guys [and maybe girls], what about to make some war: European Union vs. USA. Then we can see in real situation, which fighter is the best in multirole action [air-to-air, air-to-surface, CSAR, martime attack, SEAD, air fire support...]
PS: compare Eurofighter to F-15 is the same like to compare F-22 to Dassault Mirage F-1.
