Total Fighter Aicraft

Which five countries in order have the most fighter aircraft?  I'm referring to active only, not including stored.

Do you mean total planes, navy planes, or only air force planes?

US, Russia, China, UK, Germany

I'm pretty sure this is right, but maybe not......US is the obvious first and Russia comes after, then China I know that much..........

I think India should rank 4th. Anyway the total number isn't so impressive. China has a bunch of J-7 and India still has a bunch of Mig-21s. PAF is also quite large, possibly bigger than RAF or Luftwaffe. But PAF should still have some J-5s in service, that's already redicilous.

I'd lean towards US, Russia, China, Israel, India.

Israel has the most F-16 Fighting Falcons outside the US. I think the IAF (Israel) has close to 400 fighter aircraft if I remember correctly.

Your right RecceJet on the amount of F-16's Isreal has (give or take a few).

I also stumbled upon a article on China's fighter aircraft.

Hi
First of all i would like to salute the all world of army because we should be understand how much of life they are survived to protect us. I don't think that we should be compare any force in matter of power. According to me every force has a different strategy to fight either it belongs to Air force, Navy and Military. So we can say that we should be have only Air fighter.

US, China, Russia... Russia downsized a lot over the past decade, China didn't... still lots of J-7/8s on strength.

North Korea and Taiwan, and also Turkey maybe, come before Israel, on paper...
