  Air force - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
An Air force is a military or armed service that primarily conducts aerial warfare.
Some air forces such as the British Royal Air Force (RAF) have a unique rank structure; other air forces such as the United States Air Force (USAF) have a rank structure on the Enlisted side that is unique, but the Officer corps uses Army-style rank.
Some air forces also operate anti-aircraft artillery (now with radars and missiles), and a few air forces even have their own paratroopers.
