In my opinion, the United Kingdom is the strongest European nation. The UK has the strongest European economy, and their military is first rate. The Royal Navy and Royal Air Force would be able to defeat any continental European air or naval force in a one on one battle.

On top of that, in a shooting war in Europe, the United States would back the UK and that would turn the tide right away.

If you are the UK, you gotta love your location. Sure there is the Chunnel, but that lil thing can be collapsed pretty quick in a pinch.

OK, better the channel than being surrounded by other land, over which enemies could quickly move, unless ur troops are on hovercraft, the channel provides a delay and barrier for troops to access UK.

i`d say that the french were defeated by the winter in russia and when it comes to russia then i have seen soldiers of the "great" russian army begging for money in the streets and a russian captain carring banana-boxes in the railroad station for extra income because the army isn`t able to pay their wages...
if you could talk to someone who has server in the russian army then you wouldn`t believe what you hear

shit happens,Estonia aint better LOL

P.S dont forget the Germans, and by the time when Germany attacked Russia, army was in very bad shape.

Estonias always try to say something to Russia that to make it look bad, like the Estonian president..

IMHO you don`t have to say anything to make russia look bad, but as said it is my opinion.... but i would like to hear what our president has said to make russia look bad... to me it seems vice versa

i like to go personal and ask you why Estonia isn`t better

Hard choice, on one hand you have Russia which has phenomonal resources which are basically untapped and a military with some of the most advanced hardware available and on the other hand you have Germany which is already an established economic power with a strong industrial base and probably the best MBT in the world.

In the end I went for Russian potential over German efficiency.

Another factor in selecting Russia was that its equipment is home grown while much of europe (except France I think) is a hybrid of home grown and US equipment.
