U.S. Air Force about 5,778.
U.S. Navy about 3,700.

The air force actually has more planes than the navy sooooooo.....

where do people keep coming up with that? the Air force has more aircraft then the navy and marines combined in total numbers, fixed wing combat aircraft, and bombers. the only thing it has fewer of are helicopters because it's not meant to be part of it's inventory. of course by helicopter inventory the army is by far dominant.

However, the navy has more duplicate planes. The airforce has a wide variety of air superiority, bomber, and transport aircraft. The navy's planes are mostly ground-attack.

Also, you might be counting helicopters in the navy's aircraft list. Those don't count.

Your logic is sound, until the helicopter part.
A helicopter is just as much an aircraft as any plane.
Helicopters add to the diversity of air superiority, so it should be counted.

However, I do agree that air force is what it is. It has much more superiority in the air.

The navy doesn't really have any attack helicopters.

The marines have some, but they don't count.

he said that the navy has more planes than the air force, not more aircraft. So helicopters still don't count

Helicopters aren't even controlled by the same general. They're controlled by the ground attack one, separate from the air attack general.
(i know my lingo is off)

I'm not sure what this has to do with anything.
It still is considered and aircraft and adds to air superiority.
