Primary roles of the AFZ are interception and close air support. The AFZ plays a major role in supporting the Zimbabwan Army and did some actions in Mozambique and the Congo.
The air force is currently experiencing very low serviceability rates due to a shortage of foreign currency to buy spares.
It is to be expected that the AFZ will acquire a new multi-role fighter, most likely MiG-29, if a good price can be obtained...
Rumours of the acquisition of this type have been floating around for nearly 10 years.
