Can a portable GTCP-85 series be used on an F-15? Or is there no capability to use an external APU. As I understand, F-15's use the JFS-190?

    $\begingroup$ Any jet fighter aircraft can use an external APU that provides the appropriate voltage and amperage. Generally an APU is defined as a device that provides electrical power, and in some cases (such as the APU on a CH-46 helicopter) also hydraulic power. The JFS-190 is different in that it is intended to help start the engines. It provides hydraulic power and mechanical power to start the engines using clutch plates. $\endgroup$ Commented May 19, 2019 at 11:59

    $\begingroup$ I believe I have found the answer. F-15's use Generator Set, Gas Turbine Engine Model A/M32A-60A nsn 6115-00-420-8486. FInally someone on flight line was able to assist. But thanks for your help amigo! $\endgroup$
