while i would think it would be china i would have to say malaysia second would be thailand third would be singapore. I think that Indonesia needs to resolve some domestic issues rather than try to be a power.

Definitely Malaysia by being one of the few nations with modern fighters from both the US and Russia.

I find it amazing that a teensy weensy country like Singapore maintains an airforce with F16's! I wonder how their pilots get trained considering that their country must only be 10 minutes flying time from end to end!

I can answer your question about the RSAF. I live only 2.5 kilometres from the Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) Pearce base. We have here stationed on a permanent basis a squadron of Republic of Singapore Air Force S.211's. In addition to Pearce, the RSAF also maintains a base at Amberley (I think) in Queensland.

In addition to all of this, there are regular military exercises held in Australia, which involve Malaysian, Singaporean, Australian and New Zealand (and also British) air forces. This is done under the 5-nation alliance which the above country's are a part of.

Cheers

Singapore may be small but its also very densely populated and very rich, prosperous, nationalistic and if you've been there you've got to admit that everything there works as it should, therefore I believe that RSAF is best AF in SE Asia...

I would go for Malasya since it has Mig-29 and if it will have Su-35 it will definetely rule out all the F-18's and other junk...
