Flight International: By the number of military aircraft and helicopters, Russia ranks second in the world

54
Analytical Center Flight International published a report on the distribution of the countries of the world on the equipment of the Air Force by airplanes and helicopters. With a large margin ahead of the rest of the world are the United States of America, whose military fleet consists of more than 13,7 thousand vehicles. This is about 26% of the total world equipment of this kind of technology.


The second place is occupied by the Russian Federation with the presence of approximately 3,55 thousand aircraft and helicopters (approximately 7% of the total number of military assets aviation similar type in the world).

Flight International: By the number of military aircraft and helicopters, Russia ranks second in the world


If we believe Flight Internationalthen in the top three is the People's Republic of China with approximately 2,94 thousand airplanes and helicopters. Among the world leaders in terms of military aircraft (airplanes and helicopters) are such states as India (about 2 thousand vehicles), Japan (1,6 thousand), Republic of Korea (1,43 thousand), and also France, Turkey, Egypt and the DPRK .

Somewhat strange is the fact that in the list of the leading powers of the world by the number of military aircraft and helicopters, for example, Britain is not mentioned.

According to experts of the analytical center, over the year the number of military aircraft and helicopters in the world grew by about 400 units, and the growth estimate in Russia was approximately 150 machines. That is, according to the FI version, more than a third of the global growth fell on Russia.

    150 is not enough.
    In addition, the ratio is not happy. If out of 3550 there were all new models, there would still be no where.

            И начали закрывать военные училища и "укрупнять" учебки. Как раз Сердюков подписал приказ о закрытии Сызранской вертолетной учебки, крупнейшей в стране.
            Кстати о "масштабных поставках техники" - ты что имел ввиду? Офисную технику? Тогда да, принтеры и ксероксы пошли в войска! Слава Сердюкову! wassat

                    Sanya’s bullshit - Serdyukov didn’t accept the military budget (and in 2010 he really did), he mastered it. The equipment that entered the troops was mostly ordered and paid for several years earlier.
                    Let's talk about what Serdyukov really ORDERED. And this is Mistral and Lynx. Ugh.
                    P.S. Sanya, you’re defending the Jews and Serdyukov lately. Is Chubais the next? (Even the GDP called it an effective manager) laughing

            In case of urgent need, I’m sure that Russia will be able to open a dozen new aircraft plants, factories for the production of air defense systems, electronic warfare systems, and the existing factories of the Urals can easily cope with the shaft of necessary artillery and tanks.

      It’s easier to estimate the standard combat vehicles, the number of which is known more or less accurately:
      Russia
      Air Force - 1000-1100 aircraft (Mig-29, Mig-31, Su-24, Su-25, Su-27/30/34/35, Tu-22M, Tu-160, Tu-95)
      Navy - 100-150 vehicles (MiG-29K, Su-24, Su-30, Su-33)
      Total - 1100-1300 units

      USA
      Air Force + National Guard + Air Force Reserve - 2000-2100 vehicles (F-15, F-16, F-22, B-1B, B-2, B-52, A-10, AC-130)
      Navy + Marines) - 1100-1200 vehicles
      Total - 3100-3300 units

      That is, you can estimate the approximate difference.

Так же происходит подсчет "военных" аэродромов. в большинстве они частные, и не на каждом сядет или взлетит военный самолет. а в чистых цифрах это выглядит как 100500 военных аэродромов
