They had 17 usable ships. 22 types of Land weapons/guns/tanks/vehicles, 18 different types of small arms, 77 different types of airplanes under the categories of fighter planes, bomber planes, transport planes, training planes and others. US Marine Corp Sergeant P. W. Cavnar says it would be difficult to know the exact amount of weapons in each category that the US had before the war. I had to manually count all those types of weapons and it was not possible for me to determine the total amount of every weapon.
