Holy shit I wasn’t aware that the army has its own batch of aircraft (I mean that’s what the airforce is for?). For the marines it makes sense I guess that they have their own.

for the army and marines I believe they have aircraft so they dont have to rely on another branch of the military that has different protocals and chain of commands. also Different Missions, Different Aircraft. Different Capabilities

That's only going by number of aircraft. Going by value of aircraft, China and Russia are probably 2 and 3.

That is probably true!. the marines are a great example. numerous smaller specialized aircraft.

What? Going by value of aircraft probably makes the ranking less weighed in favor of Russia and China, no?
