The modern Swiss Air Force strikes a balance within its defensive-minded stance, allocating resources between active defense (32%) and training (32%). Beyond this is a modest collection of rotorcraft (26%) backed by a single special-mission platform to cover very specific over-battlefield roles. However, the service is due for an upgrade of its fighter fleet for a more modern solution and broadened capabilities required in the upcoming decade.
