Singapore, Oct 22 (UNI) Singapore has bought eight F-15SG fighter jets from Boeing, to be delivered from 2010.

An additional order for four F-15SGs was also made later.

This acquisition is part of the RSAF's continuing effort to renew its fighter fleet.

The additional F-15SGs will be equipped with sophisticated avionics and weapon systems.
