United States Air Power


Fixed-Wing | Rotary-Wing Aircraft

Modern airpower is second-to-none with over 12,500 airframes available to the service. This includes a collection of combat / direct-attack types alongside a sizeable fleet of transports, tankers, special-mission platforms, and trainers made up of fixed-wing and rotary-wing types. Modernization has done well to keep select Cold War-era units viable for the modern battlefield and the service also benefits from its investment in next-generation types such as the F-22 and F-35 platforms. The USAF remains one of the few services to operate a dedicated bomber fleet, these designs capable of conventional and nuclear attacks. The special-mission force covers all manner of specialized airborne actions, providing allied aircraft and ground commanders with a critical eye-in-the-sky. The USN can take the fight to the enemy anywhere in the world thanks to its large carrier force. The USMC also maintains an impressive collection of aircraft that rivals (and in most cases) surpasses that of even top-flight world air services. US Army aviation operates a vast collection of rotorcraft centered on the AH-64 Apache attack helo and the UH-60 Black Hawk type.

NOTES: The USAF is in a period of major modernization with various limitations being addressed: F-35A fleet strength is at around 300 airframes with approximately 1,453 units on order. The F-15EX is on order with 104 units planned. The OA-1J Sky Warden has been ordered through a 75-strong procurement notice. The B-21 Raider, successor to the B-2 Spirit stealth bomber, is on order through 100 planned examples. An additional 113 KC-46A Pegasus aerial tankers remain on order to add to the 61 in-service models. The USN awaits 236 F-35C carrier-centric models and another 58 F/A-18E/F Super Hornets. The USN also awaits some 49 CMV-22B tilt-rotors to further enhance the VTOL fleet.
