The AAF is the largest of the 4 branches of the ADL and operates principally on the Aenopian doctrine of aerial superiority. The AAF's mission is to support the objectives of the Aenopian Defence Ministry, which are to "provide the Empire with a defence force capable of preserving its sovereignty". It operates the majority of the Aenopian Defence League's aircraft, although both the Aenopian Ground Force and Aenopia Naval Force also operate aircraft in various roles. The AAF provides support across a spectrum of operations such as air superiority, precision strikes, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance and humanitarian support.
