In 1967 the U.S. became aware of the Soviet MiG-25 Foxbat. This made it necessary to develop a new aircraft to counter the MiG-25. The USAF rejected the USN F-14 Tomcat and issued its own requirements. The solution came in the form of the McDonnell-Douglas (now Boeing) F-15 Eagle. The F-15A made its inaugural flight in July 1972 and in January 1976 the first Eagle entered service. The "E" entered service in 1989. The F-15 was the first dedicated USAF air superiority fighter since the F-86 Sabre.

The Royal Saudi Air Force purchased 72 F-15S’s comprised of 48 aircraft set up to specialize in air-to-ground missions and 24 for air intercept roles. The maiden flight of the F-15s took place on June 19, 1995 with the official roll out took place on September 12, 1995. The last F-15S was delivered on November 10, 1999. The twenty first F-15S was 93-0872 Saudi serial S21 and delivered in August 1997. 93-0872 is assigned to the 6th Squadron/5th Wing located at Khamis Mushait (King Khalid Air Base).
