Times are tough everywhere these days. If you're having trouble balancing the nation's air defense budget, check out Boeing's shiny new F-15 Silent Eagle -- ideal for emerging and near-bankrupt nations (Iceland, I'm looking at you).

The F-15 Eagle first took to the skies in July, 1972. Since then, over 1200 of these versatile tactical fighters have served with a half-dozen air forces around the world. Its aggressive styling ensures your neighbors will be green with envy when you park a squadron or two in front of the presidential palace.

From Boeing's press release: "The F-15 Silent Eagle is designed to meet our international customers' anticipated need for cost-effective stealth technologies, as well as for large and diverse weapons payloads," said Mark Bass, F-15 Program vice president for Boeing. "The innovative Silent Eagle is a balanced, affordable approach designed to meet future survivability needs."

Boeing has completed a conceptual prototype of the CFT internal-carriage concept, and plans to flight-test a prototype by the first quarter of 2010, including a live missile launch.
