Yemen Air Force

Tue Oct 01, 2002 5:54 am

Is Yemen planing to replace their aging aircraft anytime soon? Mig21s and F-5 are achient. Most aircraft in their fleet dont even work. They dont have much of a military to begine with.

Well, they were going to purchase some second hand Su-27's from Russia a couple years ago, don't think anything came out of it. They do operate a limited number of MiG-29's and L-39C's. Other fighters are on the most part MiG-21's(F/FM/Bis), MiG-23's (BN/UM), and Su-22's. Also insignificant amounts of F-5Es and MiG-15UTIs (training).

Sort of off topic but how many F-5s, MiG-21s, MigG-29s and, L-39s does the Yemeni Air Force have exactly?
