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.

india with 1 billion population and uk with estimated 65 million population.
Population does not matter. Pakistan's population is .18 billion but still behind taiwan and USA's population is 1/4 os china but who is ahead
