Ranking of total fighter and interceptor aircraft fleet strength by operating national power.
The Global Firepower ranking tracks aircraft elements dedicated to Air-to-Air (A2A) combat. These elements - which include modern multirole types - are specifically designed to counter airborne enemy aircraft through use of advanced radar and missile technologies. The listing, therefore, includes multirole performers such as the Eurofighter 'Typhoon', classic fighter types embodied by the Boeing F-15 'Eagle', and true interceptors such as the Mikoyan-Gurevich MiG-21 'Fishbed' still operated by some global forces.
Data presented on this list is through 2021. Estimates are made when official data is not available.
