The Mitsubishi F-15J Eagle is a Japanese fighter jet built and licensed by Mitsubishi Heavy Industries. It is an export version of the McDonnell Douglas F-15C Eagle. The Mitsubishi F-15J was first featured in the 1989 Godzilla film, Godzilla vs. Biollante.


Heisei era

Godzilla vs. Biollante

Although Godzilla had successfully been injected with the Anti-Nuclear Energy Bacteria, he seemed unaffected by it, turning his attention towards a nuclear power plant at Wakasa Bay. The JSDF enacted a plan to increase Godzilla's body temperature so the ANEB could take effect, based around the M6000 T.C. System. Two F-15Js flew over the chosen battlefield as preparation were made, spraying silver iodide to generate artificial clouds in the hopes of strengthening the T.C. System's effects.

Godzilla vs. King Ghidorah

Shortly after the Futurians unleashed King Ghidorah on Japan, the J.A.S.D.F. sent in multiple F-15Js in an attempt to shoot down the three-headed terror in the skies over Hokkaido. Maneuvering behind the kaiju, two of the jets opened fire on Ghidorah with air-to-air missiles to no effect. The pair passed Ghidorah, with the monster dispatching one of the jets using his Gravity Beams and colliding with the other. More F-15s fired more missiles at the heads of Ghidorah, again to no avail. In retaliation Ghidorah destroyed two more of them with his Gravity Beams. Seeing that they were no match for Ghidorah, the remaining fighters retreated as he continued firing.

Two J.A.S.D.F. F-15Js were sent to intercept the Super Gyaos that was in the midst of attacking South Of Tokyo, though they would not ultimately engage the Kaiju.

Gamera 2: Attack of Legion

After Gamera destroyed the Flower Pod in Sapporo, he was attacked by a swarm of Soldier Legion, dislodging them by taking flight and submerging underwater. Meanwhile, the newly awakened Sub-Adult Mother Legion flew out of the remains of the pod. The JSDF sent two F-15Js to pursue her over the Tsugaru Strait. Their air-to-air missiles shot her down, but the JSDF was unable to find her body, only a single wing, and the monster would soon return.

Gamera 3: Revenge of Iris

After Iris began making his way to Kyoto in search of his adoptive mother Ayana Hirasaka, a fleet of F-15Js were sent to try and shoot him down before he could reach the city. Although unaffected by their weaponry, Iris retaliated against the jets and began attacking them, nearly killing the pilots. Suddenly, Gamera arrived, and protected the aircraft by distracting Iris, allowing the F-15Js to fly away to safety. Despite this, as a result of Gamera's battle through Shibuya several days earlier, a set of MIM-104 Patriot surface-to-air missile launchers operated by the JSDF were then ordered to shoot down Gamera and began firing on him with their missiles. After several successful missile hits, Gamera lost altitude and was forced to land, while Iris managed to escape.

Millennium era

Godzilla 2000: Millennium

A fleet of Mitsubishi F-15J Eagles took part in the operation to prevent Godzilla from reaching the Tokai Nuclear Power Plant in Tokai, Ibaraki Prefecture. Firing on Godzilla with their missiles in tandem with the Full Metal Missile Launcher units on the ground, they were able to halt his advance and even stop him from charging his atomic breath.

As the Dimension Tide drifted above Earth, the JASDF flew the F-15Js in tandem with the GX-813 Griffon over the Pacific Ocean. Attempting to lure Godzilla towards the small island of Kiganjima, so that the Dimension Tide could defeat the monster for good, the F-15Js fired upon the ocean, forcing the angered beast to surface. The Griffon fired its Photon missiles at Godzilla, and the jets fired their infrared and RADAR missiles in tandem. Unfortunately, the jets were shot down by Godzilla's atomic breath, but the Griffon flew on and continued to drive Godzilla further through the blue waters.

Godzilla: Tokyo SOS

A Mitsubishi F-15J in Godzilla: Tokyo SOS

An unidentified flying object was detected over the island of Iwo Jima. Believed originally to be a cruise missile, two F-15Js were sent from Hyakuri Air Base to intercept and identify it. With it flying at Mach 2 within cloud cover, both aircraft were unable to visually identify it. One of the aircraft, code named “Blue 1”, attempted to communicate with it, demanding it change course. Hearing no response, they decided to fire a warning shot. After doing so to no effect, one of the pilots began to hear singing. Then the object broke out of the clouds and caused one of the pilots to briefly lose control. They decided to fire an AIM-7 air-to-air missile in order to shoot down the target, but it evaded the missile, releasing a yellow pollen at the same time that caused the weapon to detonate harmlessly. After it disappeared off radar, satellite imagery identified the target as an imago Mothra.
