List of military aircraft of Germany

This list of military aircraft of Germany includes prototype, pre-production, and operational types. No distinction is drawn here between different services until 1991.

In 1990, the various air arms of the former German Democratic Republic were absorbed by their counterparts in the Federal Republic of Germany. Some types that had been operated by the GDR were, of course, no longer in service at this point, and these are so noted.

The reunifed Germany's military aircraft consisted of a mix of East and West German Aircraft that were in service along with new aircraft acquired after combining.
