Israel's F-15Cs have similarly seen heavy use, and some F-15As are already being retired from Israel's inventory.

What do you reckon US Air Force will replace them with ??

Up-graded F-15's

Re open the F-22 production line, with upgraded avionic's

Develop a 6th generation; all singing, all dancing, fighter.
