Helicopter Fleet Strength by Country (2024)



ROTORCRAFT | FLEET STRENGTH

Ranking total helicopter strength by country, from highest to lowest.



Rotorcraft forces are a critical component to any military power for their inherent flexibility and tactical usefulness. Helicopters can cover a myriad of over-battlefield roles including Search & Rescue, MEDEVAC, SpecialOps support, artillery-spotting, maritime patrol, and training.

For the purposes of the GFP ranking, helicopters include all operating types including transport, attack, gunships, and the like embodied by such types as the Russian Mi-17 'Hip' and American Sikorsky UH-60 'Black Hawk' lines.

Data presented on this list is through 2024.
