The Algerian Air Force, known as "Al Quwwat aljawwiya aljaza'eriiya," was established after Algeria gained independence from France in 1962. With Soviet assistance, the Algerian Air Force began acquiring planes, starting with MiG-15 UTI's and MiG-15bis fighters that were delivered through Egypt in 1964. It seems over 28 refurbished Magisters were delivered from 1971 and flown in 2 escadrilles. They were also flown for ground attack missions. Helwan trainers were also flown.
Subsequently, the Algerian Air Force also acquired other aircraft, including the MiG-17, MiG-21, and even the MiG-25, as well as second-hand MiG-29 fighters purchased in 2000. In recent years, the Algerian Air Force has expanded its fleet with the addition of American and French supplied aircraft, reflecting the country's improving relations with the West. Additionally, the Algerian Air Force currently utilizes some 32 L-39 Albatros aircraft for training purposes.
Notably, the MiG-25 remained in service until mid-2022 and was the last operational Foxbat in the world, marking the end of an era for this legendary aircraft.
