There are currently just over 24,646,809 soldiers serving in the AAF.


The Asgarnian Air Force's airspace command extends around Asgarnieu and its territorial waters. Protectorates, colonies, and claims are also included in the airspace. Due to the expansive area that needs patrolling, regional air commands use real-time AS-9 satellite coverage to watch areas that aircraft are not currently patrolling.
