(Multi Stage Improvement Program
retrofitted) instrument panel. Main difference is the colour Multi Function Display that replaces the armament panel in the lower left side. Also noteworthy is the metal "sled" bolted to the right side of the HUD frame.
It is used to clip-on a commercial rifle scope (not installed here) to help in visual long range ident of "bogeys". The early mods (not MSIP-related) were known as "Eagle Eye" and used a Redfield 6X fixed scope.
Photos taken some years ago in England of Eagles out of Bitburg.

A note from Danny Deters about the above plane;
I'm not an expert,
but I pretty sure that the bird is a F-15C because I just happen to
have SuperScale decals of that bird (unbelievable !!) the A/c # is
AF790036 according to the decals the pilot was COL. Pete Robinson &
CC. SSgt. Richard Haas from the 36th tactical fighterwing. The aircraft
has the 36th TFW badge on the starboard intake and the "Skyblazers"
on the port. I'm getting all this info from the Decals here in front of
me, and it says that it was painted in the Compass Ghost scheme. For
anyone's info the SuperScale #is 48-334 and also includes the McDonnel
Douglas Demo F-15E decals serial#AF86183. I hope this helps.
