    The F-15E Strike Eagles from the 336th Expeditionary Fighter Squadron are flying air operations in support of maritime surface warfare.

    Their role is to conduct combat air patrol missions over the Arabian Gulf and provide aerial escorts of naval vessels as they traverse the Strait of Hormuz.

    The F-15E is a dual-role fighter designed to perform air-to-air and air-to-ground missions and is currently conducting Surface Combat Air Patrol (SuCAP) operations to ensure free and open maritime commerce in the region.

    The 336th EFS is assigned to Al Dhafra Air Base, United Arab Emirates, and arrived in country the second week of June, joining ADAB’s inventory of other fighters to include F-15C Eagles and F-35A Lightning IIs.

    The F-15E has the capability of carrying a robust assortment of air-to-ground munitions, and flies with various configurations to ensure an ability to respond effectively to dynamic situations.
