Military Aircraft Fleet Strength by Country (2024)



FIXED-WING | AIRPOWER

Ranking total aircraft fleet strength by country, from highest to lowest.



Global Firepower tracks total air service strength for each national power taken into consideration for the annual GFP ranking. Fixed-wing and rotary-wing (helicopters) aircraft types are factored in from all branches of service (Air Force, Army Aviation, Navy, Marine). Aircraft types considered include fighters (multirole, interceptors), trainers (basic, advanced), transports (fixed-wing and helos), dedicated bombers and ground-attackers, special-missions platforms, etc. Aircraft currently under development or on order heading into the upcoming year are not taken into account.

Data presented on this list is through 2024.
