YEAR OF UPS
AND DOWNS

US budget cuts and Middle Eastern conflict hurt air force


fleet growth, but Asia, the Americas and Russia show
net gains, with the F-35 taking the limelight in 2013

ing. French assets and personnel remain in


place, while the task of handing responsibility
to African and UN peacekeepers gathers pace.
The collaboration between France and its
allies for the Serval activity is well practiced,
with many of the same nations having
worked together during the Libya campaign
two years earlier, and also still involved in the
NATO-led mission in Afghanistan.
Despite an agreed timetable to end all
combat involvement in that nation by the end
of 2014, several major current contributors are
likely to continue to offer services to support
the Kabul government in the transition that
will follow the end of their International
Security Assistance Force duty.
Work to prepare the Afghan military to assume full control for security continues to
make mixed progress, from the aviation perspective. A controversial light air support requirement for 20 armed turboprops is advancing, with a Sierra Nevada-Embraer
teams offer of the latters EMB-314 Super
Tucano having won a US Air Force-led contest for the second time in February 2013.
Equipment uncertainty has surrounded the

he ability of air forces around the


globe to react to the unexpected was
highlighted afresh in 2013, with requirements having ranged from providing multinational support for Frances
combat intervention in Mali, to flying humanitarian relief sorties to help in typhoon-devastated parts of the Philippines.
Just one full week of the year had passed
when Paris took the decision to launch its
Operation Serval campaign, responding to a
request from the embattled government in
Bamako. French aircraft already based in Africa were reinforced within four days by assets including several of its air forces Dassault Rafales, some of which completed a
more than 9h 30min strike mission in the
process of deploying to the region.
Vital support came from allocations of
tactical and strategic transport, tanker and
airborne surveillance services from several
European nations, and from the USA.
While the Islamist militants which had
been threatening to take power in Mali were
quickly tackled, the process of maintaining
the security situation in the nation is continu-

fleet of Alenia North America-prepared
C-27As having been parked, and some of
their duties assumed by a pair of ex-US Air
Force Lockheed Martin C-130Hs.
In the USA itself, Congressionally-mandated budget cuts imposed via sequestration continue to threaten long-term damage, with the
air force having aired the possibility of retiring entire aircraft types as one means of making savings. One potential victim of such a
step could be the services Fairchild-Republic
A-10 ground-attack aircraft, as their utility
could be judged as being of diminished value
away from the Afghan operation.

combined fleets lagging the
USAs by only 800 units
illustrated in the data section of our World Air
Forces directory. Compiled using information
contained within Flightglobals Ascend Online Fleets and MiliCAS databases, the product details the active air inventories and
procurement plans of 160 nations.
In all, the 2014 version includes listings for
almost 63,000 individual military aircraft.
This total includes more than 50,700 combat,
special mission, tanker and transport aircraft,
combat helicopters and training assets recorded as being in current active use. Nearly 5,300
are the subject of firm orders, while 6,800plus airframes are contained within pending
orders, or the subject of letters of intent from
potential operators.
The North America region of which the
US armed forces takes more than a 97% share
in our report retains the largest share of the
total in-service fleet, with almost 14,100 aircraft. As with previous versions, Washingtons military machine also comfortably tops
the tables in terms of volume share in all six of
our equipment categories. However, the AsiaPacific nations are slowly closing the gap,
with their combined fleets lagging the USAs
fleet total by only about 800 units.

While budget pressures continue to be felt


by many nations, the global in-service fleet
has remained steady over the last 12 months,
with a net decrease of only around 75 airframes against the figure reported in our previous directory. However, as illustrated by
our global fleet share graphic, regional
strengths have fluctuated notably within the
same timeframe. Overall growth has been
seen in the Asia-Pacific, Latin America and
North America regions, as well as within the
Russia and Commonwealth of Independent
States grouping.
By contrast, slight reductions have occurred in Africa, Europe and the Middle East.
Retirements in Europe included the German
air forces McDonnell Douglas F-4 Phantom
interceptors, Spains Dassault Mirage F1s and
two of the UKs air transport stalwarts: the
Lockheed C-130K and Vickers VC10.
The effects of internal conflict have contributed significantly to the Middle Easts reported 7% contraction within the year, with Syrias air force inventory estimated as having
been reduced from 715 units to 473. Our data
also records a net reduction in Egypt, which
continued to experience instability in 2013,
including the military ouster of its elected
president Mohamed Morsi. Cairos drop can,
however, be largely attributed to the recorded
removal from use of its long-obsolete fleets of
a combined 105 Chinese-built Shenyang F-6
and Chengdu F-7 fighters.
A related factor which could see the regional orders total pick up involves Israel, which
has called various air force assets and unmanned air vehicles into action to monitor
the movement of militants in Egypts Sinai region. The service has also intervened to strike
suspected weapons transfer activity being
conducted within Syrias borders, while officials have expressed concern over improved
relations between the US and Iranian governments. Already on contract to field a first
batch of Lockheed F-35 Joint Strike Fighters,

successful test return to the deck of the amphibious assault ship the USS Wasp, after a
brief early-year grounding. First firings of airlaunched weapons were also performed,
while fresh order and selection commitments
were made. However, South Koreas November decision to buy between 40 and 60

With a first Lockheed C-130J tactical transport
now supporting crew training in the USA, its
air force also looks set to become the first international operator of the Bell Boeing V-22,
with US defense secretary Chuck Hagel having pledged to expedite a deal for six of the
tiltrotors.
Meanwhile, a 5% year-on-year increase in
the Asia-Pacific fleet can be attributed in part
to Indias major and ongoing armed forces investment. This has seen its air force start flying the C-17 and introduce an initial 20
Pilatus PC-7 Mk II basic trainers during the
course of 2013, while the Indian navy has also
introduced its first three Boeing 737-based
P-8I maritime patrol and anti-submarine warfare aircraft. Indonesia, meanwhile, introduced two new types, with the Grob Aircraft
G120TP and Korea Aerospace Industries T-50
having been delivered during September. The
latter companys Surion utility helicopter has
also entered service in South Korea.
Chinas growing capabilities have also been
shown, through the flight debut of its Xian
Y-20 strategic transport, and by a broadened
range of aircraft carrier-based flight trials with
its Shenyang J-15 fighter from the Liaoning.

A-model examples for its F-X III requirement


must be balanced against a reduced pledge by
the Netherlands, which slashed its expected
requirement from around 85 jets to just 37.
Europes four-nation Eurofighter consortium started 2013 with a contract to produce 12
Typhoons for Oman, while partner company
BAE Systems also resumed deliveries to
Saudi Arabia, which now has 32 of its 72 onorder examples in use. The programmes first
Tranche 3 production aircraft was flown in
early December, ahead of its near-term delivery to the UK Royal Air Force.
Deliveries of Airbus Militarys A400M have
also begun, with two examples in the hands
of the French air force and Turkey due to receive its lead aircraft before year-end. Germany and the UK will follow suit during 2014.
However, budget worries have seen Spain indicate that it will only be able to support 14 of
the 27 aircraft it has on order, meaning future
discussions may have to seek an agreeable
way of some delivery slots potentially being
marketed to export customers.
Similar contractual difficulties have
already been addressed by France and Germany in the rotorcraft sector, with the nations
having reached an agreement with NH Industries and Eurocopter to reduce their planned
total purchases of the NH90 and Tiger.
Additional available data from Ascend not
listed in this directory includes more than
650 aircraft recorded as being used for VIP
