The vast majority of US and NATO air fleets are older than the 1980s... US B-52s are from the 1950s and 1960s.
The backbone of the US AF fighter fleet are F-15s and F-16s from the 70s and 80s.
The Current Russian AF aircraft with updates are comparable if not superior to western equivalents... MiG-29SMT being inferior, but Su-35S being superior to most western equivalents.
"Inferior" in what way?
