Raytheon's AN/APG-70 is an evolutionary branch of the AN/APG-63 radar series, used on the late model F-15C/D, Israeli F-15I and Saudi F-15S, as well as the F-15E Strike Eagle.[1] Late-model U.S. F-15's, however, now use an AN/APG-63 V(3), and the Strike Eagle will upgrade to the AN/APG-63 V(4), a hybrid developed from the active radar elements from the AN/APG-63 V(3) and the ground attack software of the AN/APG-70.

The AN/APQ-180 is an AN/APG-70 repackaged to go into an AC-130 aircraft.
