    1. France (nuclear carrier)
    2. UK (no more Harriers)
    3. Italy (a bit more ships; it is still true?)
    4. Spain (on paper, surprisingly good ships, IMO)
    ...

    Russia not considered!

    I am not Spanish so I must be objective.

    P.S. For 10 years now I have a good impression of the Spanish Navy.

In an operation led by the Guardia Civil, which has enjoyed the cooperation of Morocco, these fighters, who have a sophisticated night vision system, have been critical not only to perform tracking planes and helicopters used by criminal networks, but also to detect the points of take off and logistics bases in the North African country.
