Number of attack aircraft and bomber aircraft, includes ground-attack and strategic bomber aircraft.

Strike aircraft, or attack bomber, is a tactical military aircraft that has a primary role of carrying out airstrikes with greater precision than bombers. Designs dedicated to non-naval roles are often known as ground-attack aircraft. The primary difference from bombers is their low service ceiling and greater accuracy.
A bomber is a combat aircraft designed to attack ground and sea targets by dropping air-to-ground weaponry. Bomber aircraft may be classified as strategic or tactical bombers.
