I have lived in Japan. For four years. They may make a lot of technology but thier armed forces are limited due to WWII and the US making them have only a small defense force.Also the technology may be made but it doesnt meen it is kept many of the products are sent else where to buy Japan food and other things the Japanese do not have the room to do in Japan

Why do you think that? Russia hasn't been a superpower for well over a decade and it's well known that they have nothing like the military budget they once had. They can't deploy or even maintain their fleet (once the 2nd most powerful navy in the world) 'cos they're so broke.

They just don't have the money and even back in the Cold War days most observers agreed that they were behind the West in both military R&D and application.

So it's definately the US and then take your pick from France, Germany, UK, Israel, Japan etc.

Is that you John Wayne.
 
This is my first post so here goes.

I suppose the easiest way to define who has the best Best Military Technology is to see what country's spend and see what they produce as a percentage. Whats go or whats bad?

Never the military science advances as in a war, and the US have been (almost) constantly at war since the end of WWII.
Look at attack Commanche, not a reconaissance mission.....
My vote goes definitely to the US of A, aircraft, helicopter, tank, designs.... big ETC...... are still in service after 20, 30, 40 years!
Some US designs cannot be overruned by other countries in 50 years!
look at the XB-70 Valkiry for example!
What's else there to say.................................
I think those who voted for some other countries, is pure nationalism.... nothing else....
