Its air force and Army Air Corps –which currently operate a combined total of 98transport aircraft and combat helicopters – willalso require more investment to be made inequipment terms if they are to be able to copeafter the drawdown phase has concluded.Time is tight, for example, if the US AirForce is to drive through a planned light airsupport acquisition of 20 armed turbopropsfor the Afghan air force. A programme shouldbe launched in 2013, with an earlier selectionof Embraer’s EMB-314 Super Tucano havingbeen abandoned.The process of leaving Afghanistan will bea difficult one for participating nations, with agreat deal of valuable equipment requiring ex-traction by air, and land convoys needing sig-nificant protection from above.Another aspect of the Afghan drawdownprocess will be the conclusion of major jointcoalition air operations, after more than a dec-ade of experience gained in the country. Theremoval of such an opportunity to fly along-side other air forces day-to-day will requirenations to participate in more regular large-scale exercises in order to retain the skillslearned in combat and maintain links withcurrent partners.Despite widespread condemnation of theactions of Syrian president Bashar al-Assad’sregime in the face of a domestic oppositionmovement, the prospect of an internationalintervention similar to that seen over Libya in2011 remains remote.With an inventory of 480 Russian-sourcedcombat aircraft, including RAC MiG-29Conflicts in Afghanistan, Syria andbetween Israeli forces and Hamasmilitants grabbed the headlines in2012, along with the major budgetissues most militaries continue to face, andthe outcomes and implications of presidentialelections in the USA and China.Although the USA and its NATO and otherallies plan to end their combat involvement inThe US Air Force’s F-16 strike aircraft should perform their last offensive sorties overAfghanistan in late 2014, as the NATO-led assistance force passes control to Kabul

Theseincluded not only launchers for the rocketswhich were being fired into Israeli territory,but also previously identified sites, such asweapons stores, resupply tunnels and evenHamas leaders.Despite its military might and the impres-sive performance of its “Iron Dome” anti-rocket shield, Israel’s vulnerability to non-traditional attack had already been highlightedin early October, when a UAV launched inLebanon entered its airspace, before being de-stroyed by a Lockheed Martin F-16I.For the first time, this year’s World AirForces directory uses information sourcedfrom Flightglobal’s Ascend Online Fleets andMiliCAS databases.

Thisrepresents an overall reduction of fewer than200 airframes since our 2011-2012 snapshotof the worldwide fleet. A further 6,100 air-craft are shown as the subject of firm orders,with more than 5,700 others pending con-tract signatures.Notable major deletions from our previouslisting for Soviet-era equipment have includ-ed the removal of almost 500 aged Mi-24 as-sault helicopters from the Russian air force’sinventory, along with 220 obsolete Mi-2s.As with previous listings, the USA domi-nates the directory in the number of aircraft inuse and on order, with its air force, army, Ma-rine Corps and navy together accounting for27% of all active aircraft.While Washington’s numerical strength isunlikely to be overturned by former rival Rus-sia or growing military power China, the endof its combat commitment in Afghanistan andbudget reductions will have a major near-termimpact. Unless averted by early January, aCongressionally-threatened sequestrationmeasure could wipe about $500 billion fromthe Department of Defense’s budget during a10-year period, with this to come on top ofplanned reductions of $487 billion already inthe USA’s planning cycle.While the US Air Force says it remainscommitted to acquiring 1,763 LockheedF-35A Lightning II combat aircraft, sequestra-tion could yet hurt its plans. In May, the serv-ice took delivery of its last of 187 F-22 Raptorstealth fighters from the company, versus anoriginal goal of acquiring 750 of the fifth-generation type.The emergence of several developmentalRussian and Chinese fighters within the pasttwo years has focused minds within the USAand other nations as to the capabilities thatpotential future adversaries could purchase.While Western types such as the F-35, BoeingF/A-18E/F Super Hornet, Dassault Rafale,Eurofighter Typhoon and Saab Gripen E willbe technologically superior to Chinese modelssuch as the Chengdu J-20 and Shenyang J-31,the latter could eventually prove overwhelm-ing if fielded in sufficiently high numbers.Beijing’s continuing major investment indefence aerospace was highlighted by the firstflight of the stealthy-looking J-31 in October,and by Shenyang’s J-15 derivative of theSukhoi Su-33 performing trials from the deckof the Chinese navy’s newly-introduced air-craft carrier, the Liaoning. China’s admissionto the elite carrier club – which in 2013 willalso include India – was one of the most sig-nificant military developments of the year.MOSCOW MODERNISATIONMoscow, meanwhile, has continued to make asubstantial investment in modernising its mili-tary machine. Major recent commitmentshave included orders for 92 Su-34 bombers, 30Su-30SM fighters and 24 carrierborneMiG-29K/KUBs, along with 39 improvedIl-76MDtransports.Italsohasadvancedalong-planned project with India to develop a newMedium Transport Aircraft – up to a combined145 of which could be acquired – and on pro-ducing a version of Sukhoi’s T-50/PAK-FAfighter. Questions remain, however, overwhetherRussiawillbeabletosustainitsrecentspending spike, and particularly on its abilityand desire to develop a proposed new-genera-tion bomber dubbed PAK-DA.India’s planned medium multirole combataircraft acquisition reached the preferred bid-der status in late January, when it awarded aDassault-led team so-called L1 vendor statuswith the Rafale, following a battle with the Eu-rofighter Typhoon. However, New Delhi hasyet to sign a contract for the 126-unit deal.Switzerland’s government and air forcecontinue to pursue a deal to acquire 22 next-generation Gripen Es, in conjunction with aSwedish commitment for between 40 and 60of the type, but Bern’s plans face the threat ofWashington’s numericalstrength is unlikely to beoverturned by Russia orgrowing military power ChinaThe Joint Strike Fighter has been ontarget during weapons release trials

The nation’s previous admin-istration had favoured the Rafale, but a changeof government and fresh delays mean the op-portunity is potentially also still open to theGripen and Super Hornet.Lockheed’s F-35 programme, meanwhile,recently achieved its 5,000th test flight, withthe first airborne weapons separation trialshaving been performed and the first two in-ternational examples delivered to the UK,which is now acquiring the short take-off andvertical landing B-model.

Iraq alsomade progress with its plans to acquire 28Aero Vodochody L-159s, while a new era ofRussian air force pilot training began as Irkutdelivered its first Yakovlev Yak-130s to Bori-soglebsk air base in early October.Partly looking at the looming airlift require-ments linked with their departure from Af-ghanistan, Australia and the UK added loneBoeing C-17s to their fleets in 2012, whileNorway swiftly acquired a replacement forthe C-130J lost in a fatal accident in March.Canberra also retired its last aged C-130Hs, asits first of 10 Alenia Aermacchi C-27J Spartansentered final assembly.In the rotorcraft sector, the US Army hasformally rebranded its Block III production-standard Apache Longbow the AH-64E, andpotential buyers such as India and Indonesiaare already eyeing the type.The early days of 2013 will determinewhether the DoD will advance with key pro-grammes such as the F-35 as intended, or havefuture budget reductions hurt equipmentplans made by it and many of its allies.This year’s directory is dedicated toAscend Online Fleets data researcherMartin Smith, who died on 3 Decemberfollowing a short illnessJoint exercises offeran important learningexperience for airforces, such as thoseof RIMPAC alliesAustralia and IndonesiaCommonwealthofAustralia
