The Mitsubishi F-15J Eagle is a Japanese fighter jet built and licensed by Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, based on the McDonnell-Douglas F-15C Eagle. The Mitsubishi F-15J was first featured in the 1989 Godzilla film, Godzilla vs. Biollante.
Although Godzilla had successfully been injected with the Anti Nuclear Energy Bacteria, he seemed unaffected and began to menace a nuclear power plant at Wakasa Bay. The M6000 T.C. System and several MBT-92 Maser Cannons had also been placed there, and the J.S.D.F. enacted their plan to increase Godzilla's body temperature so the ANEB could take effect. The F15-Js were deployed to repel him alongside a fleet of AH-1 Cobras, but Godzilla ignored the military assault in his unceasing march towards the power plant. Suddenly, Biollante returned from space in a new form, obliterating most of the J.S.D.F.'s ground forces and forcing the jets and helicopters to retreat.

After Gamera arrived in Tokyo to seek out the Gyaos that had been taken to the city, a group of F-15Js were sent to confront him. Gamera continued to fly through the air and eventually landed as the jets blasted him with their weapons, but Gamera ignored the weaponry in favour of continuing his search.
A fleet of F-15Js were sent to confront the newly-matured Iris as he flew towards Kyoto. Iris, iritated by the jets weapons, assaulted the jets, only for Gamera to emerge and defend the humans from the giant creature.

As the Dimension Tide drifted above Earth, the J.A.S.D.F. 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.
