In the recent time air force of any country play a crucial role in the event of war, because a strong airfoce decide the result of war. In six day arab-Isreal war, Isreal alone beat the joint power of Ezypt, zorden, Syria, Iraq and other supported countries of Arab league .Pakistan air force able to gave tough fight to three time bigger Indian Air force in 1965 war and destroy one third of Indian Air force.It is also interesting fact that India lost most of the aircraft on ground fire during Pakistan air force attack.
Now the importance of Air force increase, due to ability to strike within the enemy line, destruction of their supply line, supporting of army.

United State Air Force (USAF):
 USAF B1 Lancer
 USAF B52 Bomber
 USAF Eagel F15
No doubt that USA has the largest air force based on strength and technical superiority. USAF with 332854 active personnel, 5484 aircrafts, 450 ICBM,63 satellites and  $140 billion budget is the largest in globe. This air force is most experience in the recent time due to participation in most of the war after second world war, like: Korean war, Vietnam war, Iranian hostage rescue, Invasion of Grenada, Bombing of Libya. This force is only the first one using the most advance 5th generation fighter aircraft F22.USAf is first air force using modern jet in war plane as well as first air force developing supersonic jet plane. Developing helmet simulation system, which guide pilot to take accurate decision on time.Bomber:B1, B2 and B52.Cargo Aircraft:C5, C12, C17 globe master.C-130,C-130J Hercules. Attract aircraft: F15 Eagel,F15E strike Eagle these both have till 2025.F22 only the first fifth generation aircraft in the world.F35 lighting 4.5 generation  attack aircraft.
KC10 Extender and KC-135 Stratotanker are tankers.USAF also using some Russian mig29,Mi8 attack helicopter, Sukhoi su27.AH6,AAH64 Apache, Black hock, Russian mi24 attack helicopter.
Unmanned Ariel Vechicles:MQ-1 Predator,MQ-1c Grey Eagle,RQ-4 Global Hawk,RQ-5 Hunter,RQ-7,MQ-9.
USAF also has many small drones to watch enemy information.US have the capability to send their special force in any part of the world with their special passenger plane without informing the enemy radar system. USAF is one of the efficient air force capable to do any cover operation in any part of the world, like the operation against osamabinladen within Pakistan.

Russian air force came into existence after the dissolve of USSR in 1991.Russian air force face fund shortage in the early sage but when Vladimir Putin came in power the Russian air force again get the glory of previous USSR air force. This air force using the most advance fighter plane of 4.5 generation sukhoi 30, which is more technically better than US fifth generation F22  raptor, F35 lighting. Russian air force is strength of 180000.During the last phase of cold war at 1980soviet union has totals 10000 aircrafts and at the starting phase of 1990 USSR air force in term of quantity and quality get the status of super power. USSR air force took part in Korean War and gave a huge loss to US and allies forces. Mig 15 were using against the us F86 sabre .UN issued a reward of 100000$ with political coverage if any pilot bring mig 15 for testing. One North Korean pilot do this again the Israel theft mig21 for testing, as because this aircraft was superior compare any other western aircraft of that time. Soviet air force using the mig 21, this was the supersonic plane and technically more superior. In Vietnam War and in Korean War his aircraft play a crucial role. In 1971 indo-pak war Indian were take the revenge from the Pakistan air force for 1965 with the use of mig 21. This plane was built 11000+ and 50+ countries used this machine and still used by some countries in world.
Russian air force has total 61 airbases out of which 26 base with tactical aircraft.
38 fighter aircraft squadrons(mig29 operate in 7,29s one ,two operating mig29SMT,10 operating mig 31,Mig311B operating by one, one operating mig 31BM,seven operating su27P,eight operating su-27SM,SU27SM3 and SU30M2 operating by each squadron.
It is well known fact that Russian sukhoi 30 is 4.5 generation and technically more advance compare to any western aircraft , even thou the aerodynamic body is better perform compare to US  f22raptor and f35 lighting.
New pakft50 the most awaiting 5th generation plane is actually the fifth generation and no one plane and near to this fifth generation plane.
