Any modern military worth its weight maintains a healthy collection of combat-proven aircraft.

OVERVIEW



Air forces serve as one component of a three-pronged approach when waging war (Land-Sea-Air). Used in conjunction with other services, air power is critical to subduing enemy elements on the ground and at sea. The major powers of the world currently hold in inventory thousands of combat aircraft of various types with the United States Air Force (USAF) leading the way as the largest air service on the globe.

NOTE: Air services are listed by their proper, long form names so the 'North Korean Air Force' is found under the name of 'Korean People's Army Air Force'. Similarly the 'Taiwanese Air Force' is listed as the 'Republic of China Air Force'. Nations are presented below in alphabetical order (A-Z).
