  • Total Attack Aircraft Strength by Country


    Attack aircraft represents the fixed-wing bomber and ground attack force of a given country.

    The attack aircraft has been considerably developed since its modest deployment during World War 1. Today's platforms have benefited from the many decades of conventional warfare where precision bombing, fast-attack and low-level strikes are now the call-of-the-day. The GFP total only includes fixed-wing attack / strike types (as well as light-class aircraft that can be armed) though it excludes armed UCAVs / Drones and attack helicopters / gunships. Aircraft on order (heading into the next year) are not taken into account.
