Israel orders 25 US F-15 EX fighters able to target Iran’s underground nuclear sites

The US-made F15-EX fighters are capable of hitting the nuclear facilities that Iran has buried deep in fortified, underground bunkers. Israel has placed an order for an initial 25 out of a total of 50 of these aircraft, each of which can carry a 3.75 tonne load of hypersonic weapons. Western aviation experts, speculating on the scenario of an Israeli strike in Iran, see the F-35 stealth bomber spearheading the attack to knock out the air defense systems guarding them, followed by a direct strike on the deeply-buried nuclear facilities by the F-15 EX fighters.
