F 15J number 72-8963 Name: Rafael Date: 2010/11/27(Sat) 10:44 No.295
Hi I'm a plastic modeler and I'm searching for information and pictures of that aircraft in a "special light blue" camo I found on the internet. The thing is that I want to build my model with that camo but I'm didn't found any pictures of the upper surface of the aircraft. Could you please help me on this?? Many thanks
Japanese F-15J upgrade program is called "F-15J Kai". "Kai" is a Japanese word which means "Modify". There are 2 types to upgrade, type-1 and type-2. 928 is a prototype for type-1, and 942 is for type-2. F-15J Kai have APG-63 (v)1 as its RADAR-FCS. It is not AESA, but seems can easy convert to (v)3 because it developed based on the APG-70.
This upgrade program is for MSHIP'ed F-15J. I'm not sure how many F-15J were upgraded now, but program is on going.
I hope this makes sence. :-)

Hello Koning san,
I translated your message to Japanese and post it to J-message board. I hope someone respond to you. :-)
I have a question related to the F-15J avionics suite..particularly in RADAR system, did it still use APG-63 RADAR or have it been replaced with later variant (APG-70) or Japanese indigenous RADAR system ?
I'm very grateful for any response given :D
Cheers Dhimas Afihandarin Indonesia

Dear Aviation Enthousiast,
I am looking for people who can help me with slides of F-4EJ,F-15J,T-4 and other Japanes military aircraft types. I can offer many slides of European Air Forces in exchange.
Good morning, Has the multi coloured aggressor F 15J, with the white dragon, ever been comfirmed as correct colours as constructed with the scheme as shown in the 'Military in Scale' Dec.'03. Two Bobs decals state that four (4) F 15 J had the white dragon applied but all were only painted in two (2) tone aggressor grey. Which scheme is correct?

I am sorry that it took so long to react. We went afterall to Japan first week of April and had fantastic time. Everywere good flying and we see lot of aggressors at Nyatubaru and many F1ｴs and recce Phantoms so our visit was fantastic. We hope to visit Japan again in 2006.
Ciao, Marco > So if you visit an airbase on the first week, there is a high chance that you'll see an empty airbase. > > The second or third week will be less riskier, because the new financial year will have started and planes will start flying again. > > Hope it helps, > phoenix
Konnichiwa Kazuo-sama! Yes, it's strange, I doubt accuracy but looks VERY cool! Thank you so much for update on aggressor colors. Now I understand delay. I'll patiently wait further, I'm sure it's worth it! Best regards Mario
Zen-ryaku Taguchi-sama, I thought that subject plane was only painted in 2-tone ghost grayw. I saw q picture recently (lost link, will try to post it here later) from UK National plastic modeling contest in Telford where the model of F-15J nr.963 (!) was painted in medium blue and light purple in addition to 2 grays, EXACTLY like "aggressor" nr.919. It looks nice but is this accurate? So-so Holly-sama
