This contract provides for the Republic of Singapore Air Force training on F15 aircraft, and includes both maintenance and operations on the F15 aircraft.

F-15SG is an advanced variant of the US Air Force’s F-15E Strike Eagle multi-role fighter aircraft developed by Boeing. It is intended to strengthen air defence and strike capabilities of the Republic of Singapore Air Force (RSAF).The Government of Singapore signed a $1.6bn contract with Boeing for 12 F-15SG fighter aircraft to replace the RSAF’s retired A-4SU Super Skyhawk attack aircraft, in December 2005. The first F-15SG was rolled out in November 2008 and delivered in May 2009. Singapore, which is very secretive regarding its military, has also not disclosed the number of F-15SGs it has acquired, although a count of the airframes seen so far would indicate that it has 40 aircraft if these latest eight are included.
