Topic: Top 4 World Militaries


i am not trying to turn this into a country A vs. country B. just a list, plus you can never say something for sure in war plus the terrain and what not

here is my list for overall best militaries

1. USA
this one is self explanatory

2. Russia
I put them ahead of China because of combat experience not to mention a blue water(or used to be but cash would be nice for them now) They also have a 20 million man reserve and stockpiles upon stockpiles of equipment and logistics.

3. China
They are developing at a fast rate and have 2.25 million active force with 550 thousand in reserve. A 1.7million man army and not much of a navy but that is changing.

4. UK Good stuff and they do have the support of the United States, they also have quite a bit of combat experience.

USA #1 no doubt.

Russia or China in second, difficult to say.
Only thing for sure is that the balance shifts more to PRC every year.

#3, hard one too, UK, Germany, France, Japan, all possible. But UK at this moment does look 2 bits stronger than the rest.

My List

3. Russia- Economic Problems, but still packs a punch. Incredible missile tech and incredible fighter jets.
4. U.K- Good To Be Freinds With America
