Comment(s):

After the split up of Czechoslovakia split up into the Czech Republic and Slovakia aircraft from the Czechoslovakian Air Force were divided between both countries. These aircraft are listed as 'Other Delivery'.

The Czech Air Force has a requirement for two C-295SMs. It's expected that a contract for the additional order will be signed in the second half of 2017.

L-159:

28 aircraft sold to Iraq which are in the process of being delivered to the Iraqi Air Force. Other aircraft are sold to Draken International.

Mig-29:

After the split up of Czechoslovakia split up the 20 Mig-29s were equally divided between the Czech Republic and Slovakia. The Czech Mig-29s were withdrawn from use and later transferred to the Polish Air Force.
