I doubt it too, that F-15E intercept spec has the best full internal fuel/AAMs thrust/weight ratio of anything, 1.2+.

Typhoon empty weight, 11T
full internal fuel 4T

roughly same ballpark.

5t not 4t.

Thrust of Typhoon = 40,500 lb
Weight with internal fuel = 35,000 lb

T/W ratio = 1.16

Thrust of F-15E with -229 = 58,300lb
Weight with internal fuel (No CFT) = 45,200lb

T/W ratio = 1.29

Not quite the same ballpark.
