The largest and strongest air force in Africa is the Egypt Air Force. In the top 10: Algerian AF, South Africa AF, Libyan AF, Angolan AF, Ethiopian AF. Currently the best fighter jet in Africa is the russian made Suhoj SU-30MK used in Algeria (18 + 20 on order) and SU-27SK used in Ethiopia (18), Eritrea (18) and Angola (8-10). Egypts 40 F-16C/D (Block 32) and 138 of the Block 42 are the best multirole fighters.

regrding the fighter jets, you are right but who is really battle hardened and test airforce? i think with no doubt ethiopia, we have burnt any eritrean airfrce/airfighter in air!
exprience matters to much in using the fighters b/se eritrea had modern fighters but when they came to ethiopian airforce they were simply ballons in the air!our fighter polites was in full control of 100% the airspace.
i am deadly sure ethiopian airforce is very fatal to any african and the midle east except isreal!

During the time of the Oromos running the Ethiopian air force it was the most sucessful property in terms of contaporary advancment, bravity and effectivness in destroying the rarget by outsmarting the enemy. We used to rock. That was then this is now

But now it is filled with ckockroches of tigray (TPLF) and it became the worst and less effective one. This ppl are so racist and no top of that the most ignorant and uncivilized animals that couldn't even learn the basics of war jet flight. This f*cken ppl are embaracing us to much. Damn it!

If you look on google, you will find many intresting scripts about air to air fights in the eritrean or ogaden war. Ethiopian yetorplanes won both airwar scenarios, but do not forget, that the imperial air force with F-5Es were much better trained then the Somali Air Corps MiG-21MF pilots, and that in the eritrean war your SU-27s were flown by russian and bulgarian mercenerys. Btw the AA-10 semi active radar missiles used, i mean launched from your SU-27s and also from the MiG-29s of the eritreans got lost without any hits. Very intresting... all air-air hits was made by short range infrared AAMs or onboard guns. And btw eritrean MiG-29s destroyed some 21s and 23BNs. But u are right your air forces have expirience in wars, but don't forget to say the same for angolan, southafrican and egypt air forces. Anyway, HIP-HIP-HURRA ETAF (Ethiopian Air Force, my favorite one)!

By the way, has anybody exact informations how many MiGs where equired from the Sovietunion? It is very hard to find good sources about the MiG-21s and 23s. Most common sources say EtAF received 48 MiG-21MF and MiG-21UM in 1977-1978; more - reports range from 50 to 150 - were delivered in 1982-83. 30 MiG-21bis (izd. 75A) delivered between 1986 and 1988. When i am well informed 10 more Bis came in 1999 (maybe from Romania). MiG-21 order of battle as of 2007: 18 fighters and 6 trainers) Are they upgraded or still the old Bis and MF types. Some sources say PFMs and RFs where delivered first, but u can not find information about this deal, only about PFM losses in the Ogaden war against Somail MFs.(btw eritrean yetorplanes scored 4 victorys against ethiopian MiG-21Bis or MF, 2 on the 26th February 1999 and 2 on the 18th May 2000; all 4 with MiG-29)
About the MiG-23s u can find much harder informations, only airwar.ru mentions the ethiopian 23s and says that 50 MiG-23BN, MS and UM where delivered. BUT, on photos u can clearly see MLs. Many many questions...:) An intresting topic, is someone else intrested in this?

One question done. EtAF did not recieved MiG-21PFMs, those jets mentioned in the sources (4 were shot down by SAC) were units of the Cuban Air Force, flown by cubans. I got it. Btw intresting, EtAF had better equipment then the Cuban Air Force :)

THE TOP 3 ARE NO DOUBT THE EGYPTION AIRFORCE,ALGERIAN AND SOUTH AFRICAN AIRFORCE..and to the dumb ethiopian monkey who claimed ethiopian is the best egypt has 600 war planes from f15,f16 fa18 to sukhoi and migs and more than 2000 egyption fully trained pilots how could you compare that with 40 rusty third hand warplanes with mercenary pilots even eritrea after the new suhkoi purchase from russia is believed to be more superior than the ethiopian air force.lol

you ethiopian talk the talk but never walk the walk if your airforce is strong then why dont you take a drop out of the nile i dare u's...the next day the egyption airforce would wipe every single inch of ethiopia and burn it to the ground.

Egypt AF don't has F-15s or F/A-18s, only F-16C Block 32 and 40/42. The F-16 would have problems with the SU-27... in a one on one dogfight or intercept mission. But there are too many of those Falcons, so i agree with you. And yes, after purchasing those 10 SU-27SKs eritrea is almost equal with Ethiopia.

Eritrea is equal par in air superiority with ethiopia but what gives eritrea the edge is its defense missiles they acuired from iran and china which will able them to shoot down all ethipoian fighter jets they currently have...Ethiopia still dont have a capable defense system to secure its skies from land if the americans give them these technology in the future is another case...so as it stands that means if war breaks out the battle in the sky would be fought in ethiopian airespace rather than the eritrean airspace which means the ethiopians are on the back foot not only they have to battle hard but also efficient because they will be guarding their bases all the time.
