    GlobalFirepower.com (GFP) has provided a unique analytical display of data covering global military powers with statistics compiled through various sources. This is a near-complete comparison of relative military strengths from across the globe.

    It should be noted that nuclear capability is not taken into account for the final ranking for this listing is purely a "numbers game" meant to spark debate and including nuclear weapons would clearly defeat its purpose.

    Therefore GFP comparisons are for a conventional war based solely on each individual nation's capabilities on land, at sea and through the air while including logistical and financial aspects when waging total war.

    The final GFP rankings are based on a formula taking some 45 factors into account and compiling totals against each country, applying bonuses and penalties as needed to generate this list.

    To summarize, here are the rankings. The complete details for each country are provided in the link below.

    1 .U.S.A.
    2. Russia
    3 .China
    4 .India
    5. U.K.
    6. Turkey
    7. South Korea
    8. France
    9. Japan
    10 Israel
    11 Brazil
    12 Iran
    13 Germany
    14 Taiwan
    15 Pakistan
    16 Egypt
    17 Italy
    18 Indonesia
    19 Thailand
    20 Ukraine

    Numbers are only one side of the picture, there was a time when all the numbers said that Iraq will be the military superpower of the region. Time taught us otherwise.
    They had the numbers, the finance, the financiers and yet Iran, a relative underdog, held them at bay for little under a decade.

    Iraq first destroyed itself in 8 years Iran-Iraq war, then unrest by Kurdish and Shias and then in the last out of stupidity they attacked Kuwait and the economic sanctions ruined them.

    Apart from number, a country also need wisdom to be a great power.

    Agreed. That's just how it is. Some of the mightiest states saw the most disgraceful ends.
