Last I checked the numbers of Russian aircraft operational right now were as follows:
19 - Su-27M's/ 35's
( with a peovisional order for another 75 to be delivered by end of next year)
Add to this total about 300 or so Mig-29B/S, another 200 Mig-29/ 9-13's and atleast 75 of the 29K Navalised Fulcrums!
In addition we have no fewer than 300 or so Mig-31B's and at least 150 of the new build 31M's with inflight refueling and RVV-AE capability.
There are also at elast 200 Mig-25's of all variations and another 200 or so Su-24 Fencers!
In the startegic bomber force the numbers include at least 80 Tu-95MS 'Bears' and another 60 or so Tu-22M backfires supplanted by no fewer than 25-30 Tu-160 Black jacks!
With developments of the Okb Mig's LFI/ MFS 5th gen trainer aswell as Pak-Fa from Okb Sukhoi, I am not doubtful of Russian AF's future. They have recently become the worlds largest exported of oil!, and defence and commercial business with both China and India is booming.
P.S. You have to remember that what the U.S. accomplishes for 200 billion! russia accomplishes for 20 billion!
