These Are the 12 Strongest Military Forces in the World
When it comes to military strength every citizen would like to believe that their military is indeed a strong force to reckon with. A strong military needs a big defensive budget and manpower; it needs resources and a constant update in equipment and firepower. You may be having a sizeable army but without proper resources, equipment and firepower, there’s nothing much such an army could do. Moreover, weaponry and technology need to be fully integrated to make a smart army of the modern age. The world’s strongest armies are determined by statistics and the defense budget, so according to that, here are the 12 most powerful armies in the world.
Italy starts this list with a power Index rating of 0.2694 and total military personnel of 267,500. A defense budget of $37 billion and total aircraft strength of 822. They have 79 Fighter aircraft and 200 combat tanks. Not very impressive but still enough to make this list.
North Korea keeps intimidating South Korea but when it comes to their armies, the South is way ahead of the North. On the power Index rating, they rate 0.2741 with a defense budget of $43.8 billion. The total army personnel amount to 5,829,750 and their firepower, in a nutshell, consists of roughly 1,477 aircraft among which there are 406 fighter aircraft Combat tanks: 2,654 and total naval assets of 166 (one aircraft carrier).
It is surprising to find Egypt on this list but they have a small defense budget of $4.4 billion but they have a sizeable force of 1,329,250 which is quite a lot. Egypt has a power Index rating of 0.2676 with total aircraft strength of 1,132 and 337 fighter aircraft, 4110 combat tanks and 319 naval assets that include two aircraft carriers.
