Russian Air Force

Main article: Russian Air Force

The following data is collected from open sources and may contain significant inaccuracies. The precise quantitative and qualitative composition of the Russian Air Force is unknown and the figures below include both serviceable and unserviceable aircraft as well as those placed into storage or sitting in reserve. According to the instructions of the General Staff of the Armed Forces in September 1, 2011, the unmanned aircraft of the RuAF and the personnel operating them moved under the command structure of the Russian Ground Forces. Therefore, the Army has overall control over the unmanned aircraft of the RuAF.[1] According to the International Institute for Strategic Studies, RuAF pilots average 80 to 100 fight hours per year.[2]
