The Most Powerful Air Forces of World War II

The Most Powerful Air Forces of World War II

Combat aircraft were born in the fury of World
War One, but they truly came of age in World War Two. It was here that domination of the skies became
almost as important as control of the land below. Vast fleets of bombers could reduce entire
cities to smoldering ruins, and battleships that had taken years to build could be destroyed
in a matter of minutes. For the first time air power could be the
difference between victory and defeat, and in this list we take a closer look at the
most powerful air forces of World War Two. 8. The Polish Air Force On September 1, 1939 Germany invaded Poland
in the opening act of World War Two. The German Luftwaffe planned to catch the
Polish Air Force on the ground, destroying it before it could react. German propaganda trumpeted the claim that
the Polish Air Force had been wiped out in just three days, and a totally one-sided slaughter
has become the generally accepted version of events. However, Polish airmen fought longer, harder,
and more effectively than is generally recognized. While the Germans did destroy large numbers
of aircraft on the ground in the first hours of the attack, these were mostly training
aircraft. Much of Poland’s fighter force survived. This still left only 200 or so hopelessly
outnumbered Polish fighter aircraft against well over a thousand German Luftwaffe machines. To make matters worse even the best Polish
aircraft were hopelessly outclassed. The PZL P.11 wasn’t terrible when it was
introduced in 1934, but by 1939 it was already very much obsolete. The Polish Air Force could at least count
on some extremely talented pilots. Despite being heavily outnumbered and lumbered
with inferior aircraft, the Poles shot more than 100 Luftwaffe machines from the skies
and destroyed hundreds of tanks and armored vehicles on the ground. With diminishing supplies of aircraft, fuel,
and spare parts, the Polish Air Force’s effectiveness quickly tailed off, but its
last kills were recorded as late as September 17, 1939. Many of the surviving pilots succeeded in
fleeing to Britain to join the RAF, where they would number amongst the bravest and
deadliest pilots of the Battle of Britain. 7. Armee de l’air France’s air force was once the envy of
the world. In 1918 it could launch more than 3,000 frontline
combat aircraft into the sky, more than any other nation could muster. France had produced some of the greatest pilots
of the war, and French aircraft were amongst the most advanced. In 1934 the Armee de l’air was established
as an independent branch of the military, taking its place as an equal alongside the
army and the navy. However, by the outbreak of World War Two,
France had squandered her lead in the race to dominate the skies. As Germany became ever more threatening, the
French had put three billion Francs, around 40% of their entire military budget, into
the defensive fortifications of the Maginot Line. Substantial amounts were also poured into
four hugely expensive new battleships, which would be of little to no use in any future
war with their increasingly belligerent German neighbor. The Armee de l’air received only around
a tenth as much funding as the German Luftwaffe in the years leading up to World War Two. It went to war in 1939 with around 250 operational
bombers and 800 fighters. The numbers weren’t terrible, but most of
these machines were obsolete and unfit for the demands of a modern war. The Dewoitine D.520 was a notable exception. It was arguably superior to even the best
German fighters, but only a handful of squadrons had been equipped with them. When Germany invaded France in May 1940, they
were too few in number to make any real impact. While individual French pilots fought bravely,
ground control was almost non-existent, and there was little evidence of anything approaching
a coherent overarching strategy. It wasn’t uncommon for pilots to return
to their home airfields only to find them already overrun by the Germans. The Armee de l’air fell with France, but
some pilots escaped to fight on with Britain’s Royal Air Force and the Free French forces. 6. Regia Aeronautica When Italy declared war on France on June
10, 1940 it seemed to be a disaster for the Allies. Italy’s army numbered 2.5 million men, and
her powerful fleet would threaten vital shipping routes in the Mediterranean Sea. The Italian air force, the Regia Aeronautica,
numbered almost 3,000 aircraft, and the Italians held more world aviation records than any
other nation in the world. It would turn out that much of this strength
was illusory. In November 1939 General Giuseppe Valle had
conducted a review of the Regia Aeronautica’s capabilities. He found much of the fleet to be obsolete,
and a lot of what remained to be non-operational. His report that the famed Regia Aeronautica
could only call on 396 somewhat modern bombers and 129 modern fighters promptly earned him
the sack. Mussolini expected to profit from a quick
war, and the alarming news concerning the shambolic state of his air force didn’t
deter him. In October 1940 he even somewhat optimistically
dispatched an air expeditionary force to aid his German allies in the Battle of Britain. It was the sort of help the Germans could
have done without; 24 Italian aircraft were downed without reply, having achieved little
other than providing target practice for the pilots of Britain’s Royal Air Force. 5. Imperial Japanese Air Service In 1925 an American named General William
Mitchell submitted a report warning of a possible Japanese attack against the US military base
at Pearl Harbor. Nobody paid any attention whatsoever. The idea seemed fantastical then, just as
it did 16 years later in 1941. The Japanese were in fact far stronger, and
bolder, than almost anybody anticipated. Aircraft carriers would eclipse battleships,
and the Japanese had invested heavily in these weapons of war. Through the skillful use of their carriers
Japan had the means to project air power across the Pacific Ocean. In the excellent Mitsubishi Zero they possessed
a long-range carrier-based fighter that was, in 1941 at least, competitive against any
other fighter in the world. For striking power, they could call on the
Nakajima B5N torpedo bomber, probably the best aircraft of its type in the world. For a time Japan ran riot, scoring victory
after victory, but the first major blow to Japan’s air power came at the Battle of
Midway. The 292 aircraft they lost could be replaced. Four carriers and many of their best, most
experienced pilots could not. Japan produced almost 80,000 aircraft between
1939 and 1945. This was a lot, but it was still fewer than
any of the main belligerents other than China. To make matters worse they continued to rely
almost exclusively on the Mitsubishi Zero, even after it had been eclipsed by the next
generation of American aircraft. A failure to mass produce a successor to the
Mitsubishi Zero began to cost Japan particularly dearly from early 1944, when the Americans
launched a strategic bombing campaign aimed at Japanese cities. Zeros were unable to climb high enough to
engage the raiders, allowing US bombers free reign to roam at will over the home islands. A lack of fuel, aircraft, and experienced
pilots had by October 1944 persuaded the Japanese to pursue a strategy of massed kamikaze attacks. These caused immense destruction but were
a sign of Japan’s weakness. Unable to compete through conventional means,
this was the only way Japanese air power could attempt to change the course of the war. 4. The Red Air Force In June 1941 the Red Air Force had a frontline
strength of almost 10,000 aircraft. In terms of sheer numbers this made it the
most powerful air force in the world, but in terms of operational effectiveness it lagged
well behind. The overwhelming majority of its aircraft
were obsolete, and many of the most competent officers had been sacked, imprisoned, or killed
during Stalin’s purges. A woeful training program meant that Soviet
pilots often had around only 10 hours of solo flight experience to their name. To make matters worse, Stalin had forbidden
the reconnaissance flights that would have revealed the extent of the vast German military
build-up along the 1,800 mile Soviet/German border. The invasion that Stalin had been convinced
would never happen finally came on June 22, 1941. The German hammer blow landed with devastating
impact. On the first day alone almost 2,000 Soviet
aircraft were destroyed. Within weeks of the invasion, the Red Air
Force had all but ceased to exist. Despite the huge losses inflicted upon it,
the Red Air Force made a surprisingly rapid recovery. The majority of its aircraft had been destroyed
on the ground, leaving most of the pilots to fly another day. Factories were relocated far to the east,
safely out of German reach, where they began churning out aircraft in vast quantities. Unlike the obsolete designs they replaced,
some of these were extremely good. The Ilyushin II-2 is regarded by many as the
finest ground-attack aircraft of the war. Only five of them survive to this day, but
more than 36,000 were built, making it the most produced aircraft of World War Two. In 1941 inexperienced Soviet pilots had desperately
resorted to ramming German aircraft, by the end of the war their leading aces had dozens
of kills to their names. 3. The Royal Air Force In the years after World War One, an Italian
military theorist by the name of General Giulio Douhet popularized the theory that future
wars would be won through airpower alone. The bomber would always get through, and it
would leave nothing but smoldering ruins in its wake. The job of the army would be relegated to
simply mopping up shattered survivors and occupying territory. The prospect of death from above was particularly
alarming to the British, who until the advent of the twentieth century had been largely
safe from attack in their island home. While most nations focused on how to best
use aircraft in support of their army, the British didn’t have a large army and didn’t
expect to field one. The RAF, which became an independent branch
of the armed services as long ago as 1918, turned much of its attention towards the defense
of British skies. The result was that by the summer of 1940
the British could call on the most sophisticated ground control system in the world, a chain
of radar stations across the coast, and almost as many single-engine fighter aircraft as
the Luftwaffe. This force was put to the test in the Battle
of Britain, the first battle in history to have been fought almost exclusively by aircraft. While the number of aircraft involved was
comparatively small compared to some of the engagements yet to come, the importance of
the Battle of Britain can hardly be overstated. If the RAF and Fighter Command had lost control
of the skies over Southern England, even briefly, then Hitler might have dared to make good
on his threat to invade. Britain’s offensive capabilities did not
match up to her defensive ones, at least until the introduction of the Avro Lancaster heavy
bomber in February 1942. Heavy losses early in the war forced the RAF
to resort to night bombing, which was considerably safer but also far less effective. Britain’s Prime Minister, Winston Churchill,
had seized on the idea of bombing Germany into submission, largely because it was for
quite some time the only means Britain had of hitting back. The bombing campaign gradually took on a life
of its own, with the likes of Arthur Harris, chief of the RAF’s Bomber Command, insisting
that his bombers alone were a war-winning weapon. Quite how effective the bombing campaign was
is still a matter of debate amongst historians. Despite the vast destruction wrought on Germany,
military production continued to rise until well into 1944. However, as Albert Speer, Germany’s armaments
minister noted, every gun and aircraft that defended Germany against attack from the air
was a weapon lost to the crucial Eastern Front. 2. The Luftwaffe At the end of World War One Germany had been
banned from maintaining an air force under the terms of the Treaty of Versailles. By 1939 Germany’s Luftwaffe had risen again,
widely feared as the most modern, powerful air force in the world. Early German victories over Poland and France
bestowed an aura of invincibility over the Luftwaffe. But as the war dragged on its weaknesses gradually
became apparent. The Luftwaffe lacked a modern torpedo-bomber,
had no strategic bombers, and its much-feared JU-87 Stuka dive-bomber was already effectively
obsolete by the outbreak of war. Like all Nazi institutions, the air force
was a vipers’ nest of infighting and personal power struggles. Presiding over it all was Hermann Goering,
a once-daring combat pilot who by 1939 had become a lazy, sycophantic drug addict. The Luftwaffe had been designed as an offensive
weapon that would operate in close support of the German Army. While German aircraft dominated the skies,
the German Army won its great victories of 1939-1942. As German aircraft became an ever-rarer sight,
German victories became far scarcer. In the wake of the Battle of Stalingrad, which
was almost as much of a disaster for the Luftwaffe as it was for the German Army, the Luftwaffe
was stretched far too thin on the vital Eastern Front. Meanwhile, the Allied bombing campaign forced
huge numbers of aircraft to be redeployed in a brutal battle of attrition to protect
German skies. The Luftwaffe’s revolutionary jet fighters
might have been a war winning weapon, but they arrived too late to change the course
of the conflict. In 1939 Germany had boasted the world’s
most powerful air force, but it was ground down in a war of attrition, before finally
being crippled entirely through a lack of fuel. 1. The United States Army Air Force American military planners went to war in
December 1941 with several assumptions about the capabilities of their aircraft. They believed their fighters were competitive,
that their heavy bombers were quite capable of defending themselves without a fighter
escort in broad daylight, and that the Norden bombsight would allow their aircraft to land
a bomb in a pickle barrel from 20,000 feet. This optimism quite quickly proved to be misplaced. American frontline fighter aircraft were markedly
inferior to the Japanese Mitsubishi Zero, to the extent that pilots dubbed their Brewster
Buffalos as “flying coffins.” Even the heavily armed Flying Fortress bombers
were badly mauled whenever they ventured out alone over occupied Europe. The Americans were forced to largely abandon
long-ranging forays into Nazi Germany, settling for softer targets that lay within the limited
range of escorting fighters. The US already had a solution to their fighter
escort problem, they just didn’t know it yet. P-51 Mustangs had first flown in 1940, but
they were regarded as a mediocre, somewhat underpowered aircraft. This changed in October 1942 when a British
engineer suggested fitting them out with the Rolls Royce engines that powered Britain’s
Supermarine Spitfires. With this simple change the P-51s were transformed
into one of the greatest fighters of the war. They were that rarest of beasts: a long-range
fighter capable of outperforming short-range interceptors. With the addition of an extra fuel tank they
could carry out operations deep into the heart of the Reich. When Goering first learned that P-51s had
been sighted over Germany, he flew into a rage and dismissed it as an outrageous lie. P-51s served almost exclusively in Europe,
but other superb aircraft such as the Vought F4U Corsair and the Grumman F6F Hellcat changed
the balance of power in the Pacific theatre of war. The Americans didn’t just have quality,
they also had quantity. Between 1942 and 1945 American factories produced
around 275,000 aircraft. This was more than Germany, Japan, and Great
Britain combined.


  1. 9:47 Soviet pilots, American aircraft. I surprised you didn't mention the lend lease program from the British and the Americans to help keep the Soviets in the air.

  2. The US military air were called, the Army Air Corps. It was separated from the Army in 1947. Thereafter it became the US Air Force. Understandable mistake. I just thought you should know.

  3. The Luftwaffe was not better than the RAF. You completely failed to mention Costal Command (Hunting U Boats) & search and rescue which enabled the RAF to retrieve forces personnel which may otherwise have died. Not to mention they also fought in Asia as well as Europe.

  4. America was definitely the top air force of the war, but we wouldn't have got there without Britain's help. When we showed up in England in 1942, we relied on British expertise gained during the Battle of Britain to learn how to oversee air battles. They also gave us a lot of technology, particularly radar, that was vital in taking the fight to Germany. America and Britain – stronger together.

  5. ProbablyThe most famous RAF pilot, Douglas Bader, always flew legless. Great biographical subject, wouldn’t you agree Mr Whistler????.
    Another great list TopTenz, thanks 👍🇬🇧🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿
    One point, the Luftwaffe might well have had the first jet aircraft, but remember the RAF had a jet fighter before the end of the war, so the advantage that the Luftwaffe had was negated almost before it started, that and hitlers stupidity in insisting on the ME 262 etc being used as a bomber.

  6. and that's why America spends so much money on our military because they dont want another pearl harbor also a lot of what was said in this video reminds me of the uc universe of gundam

  7. The american pilots where so very awesome. Ok, it helps if you have nearly no resistance because you are a back-stabbing, brother-murdering, civilian-slaugtering waste of life, but still, they killed a lot of people, hurray for the war-criminal cowards.

  8. A top ten list starting with number 8?? Surely you could have thrown in a couple of bit players to get to ten??

  9. In re the Me-262, it's worth its late deployment was because of Hitler requesting it'd be usable as a fighter-bomber/bomber

  10. I'm sorry Italy really and no RAF/RAAF or RCAF they prevented with help from Free Poles and Free French forces the Germans from invading the UK

  11. I can not remember the Japanese Ace's name he said upon his first encounter with a Cosair F4 "I emptied my magazine, it still flew and came around on me…."

  12. In 1945, Australia had the 4th largest air force in the world (the RAAF) and it was extensively used in both theatres of war. Not worth a mention though apparently? Poor research…

  13. The Royal Airforce spitfire and the US Corsair are two of the most beautiful aircraft ever designed. If youve ever been to an airshow and they flew a Zero…coolest sounding prop airplane ever. 🤘

  14. Besides giving us a competitive P-51 the Brits showed us how to land the Corsair on aircraft carriers (that took them 6 weeks to figure out I think it was) after we had given up on it as a carrier fighter and restricted it to land based airfields. Big U.S. egos caused a lot of unnecessary deaths among our young men…i could write another 300 words about those useless deaths but I can't be bothered reading comments from the Rah-Rah-Sis-Boom-Ba all American all the time crowd.

  15. Usually, not unexpectedly, a highly hemispheric historical outlook. The Royal Australian Airforce was the fourth largest in the world in 45, not only in manpower, but also like the Americans, Australia manufactured all its aircraft and supplied Allied Forces, unlike Britain, France, Soviets or Chinese who relied upon imported systems to some extent. Australian aircraft were on the technology edge as well, producing the first Wet Wing in 45. Aut for naught now.

    First time Thumbs Down. Piss weak effort. Terrible research. Bad writing.

  16. I would have put the germans at 1st. Me 262 was something not even the allies came up with an answer for. Hell the germans were helping the Japanese make jets also

  17. People are so easy to criticize, and mention everything he DIDN'T mention. These 10 min videos take a long time to make! Plus, Simon is a machine! His whole life is making these videos. He couldn't possibly cover every aspect of any topic he chooses. thats why he chooses 10. Watch his other channels if you want more details

  19. This is hard list to make. You basically have to go by who won. Yes, America had the strongest air Force…. By the end. America also never had their resources cut off at any point in the war so they could Mass produce. Great Brittan had to spend much of their resources defending their home and trade routes with the US, Germany never had proper access to oil. The Soviets lost pretty much everything by 1942 and had to rebuild far to the east and Japan could never replace anything they lost. France was lost so quickly they didn't have a chance and Poland… Sorry Poland. We can all laugh at Italy

  20. My Dad was a 6 ft 1" Ball Turret Gunner and was stationed first in the Pacific Theater and then the European stationed at Grafton-Underwood. I used to watch him draw for hours on end completing the sketches that he started during the War. Dad is gone now, but his drawings are still here. Though they were from a terrible war zone, his drawings freeze in time the moments he lived along with his crew to keep Our Country FREE. How I wish there were people who remembered those days so they would realize how precious that freedom is, before we freely give it away. Miss you Dad.

  21. Interestingly the Luftwaffe was home of most and the highest ranking aces in history. No other airforce has so many pilots with so many kills than the Luftwaffe.

  22. I always kind of wondered about the Poles. When the survivors went to Britain there was some question of their training so while they were itching to do battle basic training was repeated. Deja vu all over again. Still, they did get their chance. Th e y were pretty hot under the collar about German aggression. According to Hitler, there was considerable animosity between them before the war, resulting in the oppression of ethnic germans. In any case, the Poles got a rep for running their planes up into the rear section of their enemies and chewing off the tail section with their propeller. A lack of bullets was no hindrance to flying Poles. Hats off to you, gentlemen.

  23. Really, the Luftwaffe was full of infighting? If anything the royal airforce, just like all British military institutions, was nothing but a hotbed of political intrigue. At some point Simon, you should really stop trying to push your personal agenda into your "historical" videos.

  24. Sorry to see another interesting channel lose credibility, starting at 8 on a list of 10? then to see the contribution of the various commonwealth air forces not even gain a mention, the sacrifice that the young men and women of countries like Canada, Australia, New Zealand, India and the various African nations should never be diminished by exclusion, as so often happens when the story is told by those who think that they won that war all on their own.

  25. What gave the RAF chance to reorganize/survive the Battle of Britain also let Russia to move its industry's beyond the reach of the Luftwaffe was Germany only having medium range aircraft intended for Blitzkrieg during much of the War. Indeed British Airfields/Soviet Factories were literally moved out of range to German bombers but that luxury was denied them by the likes of Lancaster and the B-17/24 by 1942-3. Indeed this oversight gave Russian as nearly as untouchable an industrial base once it moved east that US enjoyed during the entire conflict and it was Germany's ruin not to have had similar bombers.

  26. Just a point: many of the US aircraft discussed (like the F4U Corsair) were actually in the service of the US Navy (and by extension, the US Marine Corps). Thus, they wouldn’t have been a part of the “US Army Air Force”

  27. In late 1944, the Australian RAAF peaked at over 182,000 personnel and 6,200 aircraft in 61 squadrons. In 1945, Australia had the fourth-largest air force in the world (after the USA, USSR and UK). Over 215,000 men and women served between 1939-45, and 9,870 Air Force personnel lost their lives.

    I think it can be justifiably said that the Australian air force should have been in the top 8..

  28. Lmao @0:40 in the who? I forgot the polish surrendered before they even fought. Oh no then the next is the French? Let's just name every country that surrendered within the first half of ww2

  29. I believe it was the Polish pilots who fled to the UK who really taught the RAF how to fight in the air. The Polish by our standards where deemed crazy and this is why. The RAF preferred to fight in the air from a distance keeping their fighters safe. But most of the ammo fired would miss. The Polish however preferred a different tactic they would try to get in really close were their machine guns or later on cannons when fired were extremely concentrated. On German bombers this was devastating and often resulting in wings, tail planes being completely removed from the whole plane. In my opinion the already experienced Polish Pilots where probably the best pilots of WW2 and once given a decent plane like the Spitfire or a Hurricane they dominated.

  30. 2 things #1 Hitler had no hope in hell of invading Great Britain. Look how long it took and the planning behind D-day. Hitler had no landing craft and it's soldiers had no training for fighting their way across beaches. #2. The fact that German production continued to rise until late in 1944 is too often used to say that the bombing campaign was unsuccessful and wasted resources that could have been better used elsewhere. My question is then ,If Germany hadn't been bombed night and day,How much higher would their production have been. If Germany hadn't had to protect their sky's would the additional resources made a difference.

  31. You list Italy's tiny air force but no mention of Canada or Australia? What is it with Commonwealth countries being ignored all the time? Very disappointing episode.

  32. Why does everyone always quote the invasion of Poland as being the beginning of WWII and Hitlers first attack? It wasn't!! He invaded Czechoslovakia first then Austria before invading Poland!! How do so many people continue to get this wrong!!?? Also the Kamikaze fighters did not cause an immense amount of destruction, they were largely ineffective and a total waste. Likely the only thing they had going was a psychological factor but all in all they were useless. It has been shown that the English night bombing campaign was a complete disaster and it was proven the only 5 bombs in every 100 landed within 5 miles of the aiming mark, because a diet of raw carrots doesn't make you able to see in the dark!!

  33. 10. Polish Air Force: Rumors of our early demise are wildly exaggerated. (Take that, Dieter!)
    9. Armee de l'air: We feast on Germans frequently with what is available.
    8. Regia Aeronautica: We and the French have low-powered aircraft engines.
    7. Imperial Japanese Air Service: By the way there are Army and Navy branches. (We have superior dog fighters, but no one else does that.)
    6. The Red Air Force: We're big on "Stalinium," also known as "wood."
    5. The Royal Canadian Air Force: The Long and The Short and the Tall.
    4. The Royal Australian Air Force: Sweeping away enemies of The British Empire from Africa to the Pacific.
    3. The Royal Air Force: Doing the most with the fewest. (We're also "night people.")
    2. The Luftwaffe: The youngest, and for a while, the best air force in Europe.
    1. The United States Army Air Force: We do it all! (U.S. Navy: Am I A Joke To You?)

  34. You missed the point that the US actually had (and still has) two air forces: the US Air Force (US Army Air Force before 1947) and the US Navy Air Forces. These really should be considered two different military organizations with the similar missions but from different staging area. The US Air Force supports a land tactical strike and strategic mission from land bases while the US Navy Air Forces supports land tactical strike and fleet defence from carriers.

  35. France and England should have left Germany alone. The Germans wanted to expand east , had they not declared war they would go only east

  36. The Regia Aeronautica actually had effective fighters (though in limited numbers) the MC202 was by all accounts a great fighter. The Italians also had what is considered the greatest fighter of the war: The Fiat G55. The luftwaffe tested the aircraft and found it Superior to even some of the latest German aircraft.

  37. RAF butchers the luftwaffe in the battle of Britain, sometimes inflicting 2 to 1 losses, but yea the luftwaffe was more powerful…🤔

  38. A correction, Stalin was well-aware of a coming invasion, he deemed it obvious, though he did not think it would come as soon as it did. Considering the results, his surprise at the German's early arrival was very well justified.

  39. One reason America would have the greatest weapon in air power that surpassed all others. Manufacturing capacity. The aircraft produced near the end of the war were trending to be better than al others.

  40. Not to be forgotten end of the war england had jets as well frank whittle invented the turbo jet engine gloster meteor was a great jet

  41. Stalin convinced what it never happen?! Why he remove almost all heavy and light industry plants equipment from Europe part of USSR to Ural mountains and start built power plants for this facilities. And most part of production move back to Europe part and concentrate around major cities?! Prepare for Christmas eve? Of course he don't know what Hitler try to take Moscow. Stop demonize Stalin – if all sh*t what west book say about him be even half true – he was killed before WW2. Nazi hates Russian more than Jews, because we not just subhuman, we are dangerous and must killed immediately include kids.

  42. 15:30 Well,Brits,Germans and Japanes each made some 130.000,120.000 and 76.000 aicrafts during 1939-45 but if you mean between in 1942-45 yeah it’s true.
