The McDonnell Douglas F-15 S/MTD (Short Takeoff and Landing/Maneuver Technology Demonstrator) is a modified F-15 Eagle. Developed as a technology demonstrator, the F-15 S/MTD carried out research for studying the effects of vectored thrust and enhanced maneuverability. The aircraft used for the project was pre-production TF-15A, the first delivered F-15 airframe, which is on loan to NASA from the United States Air Force. This same aircraft would later be used in the F-15 ACTIVE from 19931999, and later in the Intelligent Flight Control System programs from 1999 on. With the help of thrust vectoring nozzles, this aircraft can perform the famous Pugachev's Cobra maneuver.
