Boeing and KAI Sign F-15 Silent Eagle CWB Production Agreement
Boeing has contracted Korea Aerospace Industries (KAI) to design, develop and manufacture the conformal weapons Bay (CWB) for the F-15 Silent Eagle.
The CWB is an internal carriage to minimise the F-15SE's radar signature and increase its tactical options.
The F-15SE is equipped with two internal bays, one on each side, and is designed for multiple carriage configurations, including advanced air-to-air and air-to-surface munitions.
The modular CWB can be removed from the F-15 when it is not required that will enable the aircraft to transform to an external configuration within a matter of hours.
KAI builds the wings and forward fuselage for the F-15K programme.
