Default F-15C & F-15E canopy difference

Hey guys,

so this might be a dumb question. I've often read online that the Mudhen is just a C Eagle with a second seat in it and different engines. I always thought that the Strike Eagle had a completley different canopy from the normal Eagle but I've read this claim that its pretty much the same just with a second seat plastered behind the driver that I'm pretty unsure now. Does the Strike Eagle use a different canopy than the F-15C? Like it would be pretty logical because of the space requirements but I don't really know all to much about this tbh.

The simple answer is the F-15E has a different canopy to accommodate the WSO.
