Ranking of Armies with the Most Active Troops (2010) »

Share this link on Facebook
(8 votes)

This report lists countries by the size of their active military strength; that is the sum of their ground, naval, and air troops. It is noteworthy to mention that this ranking is exclusively based on the number of people enlisted and available for combat, therefore it omits more relevant criteria in current conflicts, like Military Intelligence, fire power, or weapons of mass destruction. In any case, knowing the real war capacity of a country is highly complicated as it is very difficult to predict the result and duration of a war. If you're interested in this topic or just curious, Classora has several reports on arms capacity and active army data.
