F-15 Strike Eagle II is the sequel to F-15 Strike Eagle. It is an air combat simulator by MicroProse for the Sega Mega Drive.

Players will take control of a United States Air Force pilot, flying a F-15E Strike Eagle fighter and take on missions across various campaigns. While some of the campaigns are based on real life air operations, some of them are fictional or hypothetical scenarios. Certain liberties also taken for the sake of gameplay, such as allowing F-15E to take off from aircraft carriers.
