Notes

    1 - The number of Mig-21s for 1990 includes some number of Mig-21UM 2-seat trainers listed elsewhere in this table. The IISS Military Balance for 1999-2000 reported that of these 19 total Mig-21bis and Mig-21UM aircraft, only 8 were serviceable. The 2012 edition of the IISS Military Balance did not list any Mig-21s at all, suggesting that the fleet had finally been grounded entirely.

    2 - Tecnam P-92s were also reportedly used in the visual reconnaissance role.

    3 - The dramatic drop in the number of active Mi-8/Mi-17 types in the IISS Military Balance from the 2005-2006 and 2010 periods to the 2012 period suggests that some number of the airframes acquired were used to rehabilitate existing aircraft and return them to active service and that the 2005-2006 and 2010 total may not have represented total airworthy aircraft.
