History[change | edit source]

During the Cold War, the Soviet Air Force had an air force equal to the United States Air Force. However, after the collapse of Soviet Union, the Russian Air Force was made much smaller because Russia did not have enough money to keep everything. However, spending on the Russian Air Force increased in the early 21st century.
