East African Air Forces

Background


The East African Air Forces (EAAF) is the air force of the East African Federation and one of three branches of the East African Defense Forces. The EAAF was founded in 1962 following the creation of the East African Federation and was founded out of the Ethiopian Federal Army and later incorporating the Somali Air Force in late 1962 and the Djibouti Air Force in 1975. The East African Air Forces are the third largest air force on the African Continent behind The Confederate Prussian Empire and Not Xav.
