  • Total Military Trainer Aircraft Strength by Country


    In Total War, training becomes an utterly important part of unit quality - particularly where aircraft are concerned.

    Since the rise of military aircraft, the training component has grown to become a well-established portion of any air power. Air forces are only as good as their training and this, coupled with field experience, has proven the difference in many-a-conflict. Today, training of pilots and systems operators is handled through basic, intermediate and advanced mounts which provide graduated levels of education - all equally important to any modern fighting force. Trainers on order (heading into the next year) are not taken into account. The listing also includes helicopter trainers.


    The data presented below is through 2017.
