The Republic of Texas Marine Corps passed on the F-15 Sabre early on as the Hyades Campaign heated up. The new F-12 Avengers and A-10 Righteous Vigilantes did what they needed, and famous units like the Cowboys made them household names. The Sabre’s manufacturers wanted a piece of that action, and so they went through the work of adding a pair of external hard points to the fighter before initiating the second production run. The Marines accepted that version of the fighter, and soon deployed Sabres next to their Avengers and Vigilantes. It performed well, and the citizens of Texas quickly received footage of it excelling in battle. That increased demand in both the public and military sectors, and the Marines continued buying the Sabre throughout The War. It was the most numerous single craft in the Texas Marine Corps by Wars’ End, and would continue to serve in the years that followed.
