The F-15E Eagle is one of the most advanced combat aircraft in use today. The NATO Association of Tiger Squadrons was created in 1961. Its role is to promote solidarity between NATO air forces. During the “Tiger Meets”, the squadrons engage in competitions reflecting actual combat situations. Now, 32 squadrons form the Association, each of which have a tiger as part of its squadron crest. The squadrons share ideas and experiences, and the “Tiger Meets” are also public relations exercises for NATO. The competing aircraft are usually painted with tiger stripes, the more garish, the better! Highly detailed cockpit, ejection seats and landing gear. Equipped with optional weapons, gun pod, sidewinder missiles, sparrow missiles or Mk-82 bombs and auxiliary fuel tanks. Authentic decal markings for the “Bold Tigers”, 391st Fighter Squadron, Mountain Home AFB, Idaho, host of the 2005 “Tiger Meet of the Americas” or standard squadron markings for the 391st Fighter Squadron.
