Top 25 military power rankings in the world

In this article, we look at the top 25 military power rankings in the world

The ranking evaluated the types of weapons held by each country and paid particular attention to the number of troops that could be mobilized. It also took into account geography, logistics capabilities, available natural resources, industrial conditions, and more.

Nuclear weapons are added as a bonus, but their holdings are not included in the score. Countries without a sea did not reduce their scores by not having a navy, but countries with a navy but without fleet diversity did.

 

NATO (North Atlantic Treaty Organization) member states, in theory, share resources with other member states, so a slight addition is added. However, it does not take into account the current political and military leadership of each country (financial soundness and stability are taken into consideration).

The highest score on the military power index is 0.0000, which is "realistically unattainable". The closer it is to this number, the higher the military power.

 

Let's take a look at the top 25 military power rankings in the world.
