Succint details of the DC9-15 & 20 variants are given in the
International Directory of Civil Aircraft 1997/98 published by
Aerospace Publications in Australia (ISBN 1 875671 26 9).

"The DC-9-20 featured the DC-9-10's fuselage with the -30's
more powerful engines and longer span wings, giving better hot
and high performance. The DC-9-15 was basically a -10 but with
more fuel and higher weights."

"976 DC-9s of all models (were) built including 137 -10s,
10 -20s and 662 -30s including military C-9s."

Hope that this is of assistance.
