Does anybody know what the wing-area of the F-15U (the F-15E derivative with dramatically enlarged wings) was to be? Or at least a percentage of how much more wing-area it had over the regular F-15A/C?

I don't recall that the area was much different from the standard wing. It was, however, quite a bit thicker and held more fuel.

I guess you might be right (although I remember seeing a picture of that wing and that thing looked huge area-wise even compared to the old Tennis-Court/F-15 Wing), but it would mean a lot if you could find some figures (as I can't find any anywhere)

BTW: Did the F-15U and F-15U+ have different wing-areas? (I'm kind of wondering which ones they saw)
