The Ministry of Defence publishes annual statistics on vessels, land equipment and aircraft of the Armed Forces, as well as military formations. The information requested can be found at the following link:

https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/uk-armed-forces-equipment-and-formations-2017.

We do not routinely comment on the breakdown of vehicle fleets, including by location, as to do so would compromise operational security, or would be likely to prejudice the capability, effectiveness or security of the Armed Forces.
