The F-15 ACTIVE is an advanced version of the F-15 equipped with thrust vectoring.
- Only one existed in real life. It was known as the F-15 STOL/MTD.
The McDonnell Douglas F-15 ACTIVE (Advanced Control Technology for Integrated Vehicles) is a modified F-15C Eagle. Developed as a technology demonstrator, the F-15 STOL/MTD carried out research for studying the effects of thrust vectoring and enhanced maneuverability. The aircraft used for the project was pre-production TF-15A (F-15B) No. 1 (USAF S/N 71-0290), the first two-seat F-15 Eagle built by McDonnell Douglas (out of 2 prototype), the sixth F-15 off the assembly line, and was the oldest F-15 flying up to its retirement. It was also used as the avionics testbed for the F-15E Strike Eagle program. The plane was on loan to NASA from the United States Air Force.
