In this article, we take a look at The Most Powerful Countries In The World 2019, analyzing both their workforce and equipment. The role of the military in any country cannot be overemphasized. Yearly, countries allocate a significant percentage of their budget to military spending. This is done to secure the borders of the country and to also score political points that offer greater power in determining global affairs. Determining the strength of the military of each nation can only be fully done in a war but as that is not possible without a bloodbath, we can on come up with a comparative analysis in order to draw up this list. So, by taking into account factors such as the arsenal in their possession, advanced technologies implemented by each country, quality of training, power and also number of allies, size of the army, the budget allocated, etc. we have come up with this list ranking the most powerful armies in the world currently.

The most powerful country in the world no doubt is the United States of America. The country spends a staggering $612.5 billion on its military annually which is more than what the other 9 countries making up the top 10 of this list spend combined. The U. S maintains a remarkably large army composed of over 1.2 million soldiers and another 800,000 plus in reserve. The biggest advantage the US has in terms of the military is that it is the world leader in aircraft production. The US has a fleet of 19 aircraft carriers, while the rest of the world altogether only boast of 12 carriers. The country is also at the fore of implementation of cutting-edge technology like the Navy’s new rail gun. The US also has 7,500 nuclear warheads at its disposal it is therefore not surprising it has been rated as the number 1 military force in the world since WW-II.

Russia one of the powerful countries In the World.

The defence budget for Russia currently stands at $76.6 billion and is expected to grow by 44% over the next three years. Military spending in Russia has increased by about a third since 2008, especially since Vladimir Putin took over control of Russia in the year 2000. It is therefore not surprising that the Russian army has grown tremendously since the fall of the USSR over two decades ago. Currently, there are about 1 million active frontline personnel while almost 2.5 million on the reserve force in the Russian army. The soldiers though are said to receive mediocre training. Some of the equipment backings of the man force of the Russian military include 15,500 tanks, which is the largest number of tanks owned by any country in the world.

India one of the powerful countries In the World.

India holds the record of the second highest population in the world. The country has been able to put its massive population to use and built an army of a sizeable 3.5 million of which 1.325 million are active military personnel. This huge army size is one of the reasons why the Indian military has always been considered one of the most powerful armies in the world. This huge man force is also complemented by almost 16,000 land vehicles which include 3,500 tanks, and 1,785 aircraft, alongside nuclear weapons. India’s ballistic missiles are capable of hitting all of Pakistan or most of China. Currently, India’s defence budget stands at $46 billion, but it is expected to rise, in a drive to modernise the country’s military power and become the 4th highest spender on the military by the year 2020. India is also the world’s largest importer of military goods.

#5. France

France one of the powerful countries In the World.
France one of the powerful countries In the World.

France became another country that followed Germany’s lead when it announced its decision to ‘effectively ‘freeze’ it's military spending, and cut down on the defence jobs by 10% in the year 2013. The country arrived at this crucial decision in order to save money for technologically advanced equipment. The military budget of France currently stands at $43 a year, which is about 1.9% of the country’s GDP. This amount is much below the spending target as set by NATO. The country’s army is made up of 205,000 regular personnel with another 180,000 in reserve making a combined force of about 400,000 combat trained individuals. France’s military has just over 1,000 aircraft, along with 9,000 ground vehicles. The position of France in the EU and UN, a total of about 290 nuclear weapons and significant deployments further helped to seal the position of France’s military as one of the most powerful armies in the world even if its equipment is not comparable with those of nations much higher on this list.

Japan one of the powerful countries In the World.

During WW-II, Japan was a leading military force, but interestingly, its peace treaty signed at the end of WW-II prohibits Japan from having an offensive army. However, in response to its growing disputes with the ever-expanding China, Japan began military expansion, for the first time in 40 years. It placed a new base on outer islands. It has also increased its military spending, for the first time in 11 years, to $49.1 billion. This makes Japan the 6th highest spender on the military in the world. There are 247,000 active Japanese military personnel and almost 60,000 in reserve. Also, the Japanese military boasts of 1,595 aircraft making it the 5th largest air force. The Japanese army is also equipped with a total of 131 warships. Japan through its recent defence initiatives maintains a solid military presence in Asia.

South Korea one of the powerful countries In the World.

The 7th most powerful country in the world in 2019 is South Korea. The country shares a border with its sister nation North Korea and is constantly threatened by it. North Korea has a very powerful army at its disposal which is part of the reasons why South Korea has had to beef up its defence. Furthermore, North Korea isn’t the only threat to South Korea; there is an equally offensive threat coming from both China and Japan. So to meet the increasing armament of both China and Japan, South Korea has been increasing its defence expenditure, which now stands at $34 billion. The country maintains a very large army of over 625,000 active personnel and 2,900,000 additional personnel are kept in reserve. This manpower is complemented by the 6th largest air force in the world boasting a fleet of 1,393 aircraft, as well as a small 166 ships deployed by its navy. South Korea has about 15,000 land weapons in its arsenal, including rocket systems, as well as 2,346 tanks. The country routinely participates in joint military training with the US.

This EU member state also put plans in place to downsize its armed forces by 20% between 2010 and 2018, while applying smaller cuts to the Royal Navy and RAF. This led to a drop in the country in terms of military rating. The defence budget of the UK is currently $54 billion. The country has a regular force of only about 233,000 personnel, along with a small air force of 908 aircraft, and an even smaller navy of just 66 ships.

Turkey one of the powerful countries In the World.

Turkey was perhaps alarmed by the documented struggle of the other countries sharing borders with the regions where the Islamic State has a strong presence, the struggle in Syria or the possibility of clashes with the Kurdish separatist organization. This made the country realize it needs to prepare itself to face danger head-on, if and when it approaches. This realization necessitated the decision of the Turkish government to increase its investment in defence in the year 2015 by 10%. The defence budget of Turkey is currently $18.18 billion. The size of the Turkish army, including both regular troops and reserves, is just above 700,000. Turkey’s air force boats of a fleet of 1000 aircraft. The Turkish military also claims to have 16,000 land weapons. Turkey has strong diplomatic ties with the US, and also actively partakes in initiatives around the world.

Germany one of the powerful countries In the World.

Rounding up the top 10 on this list of Most Powerful Countries In The World 2019 is Germany. Germany is as of today one of the strongest economic forces in the world, and the country spends around $45 million every year on its military. Despite this huge investment, however, the German army’s condition seems to have deteriorated in the past few years. This decline is perhaps due to the fact that the generation born and grew up in the 1950-60s were against war and its atrocities, and also the fear of being beaten by countries with stronger armies still discourages people from joining the German military. In the year 2011, mandatory military service was eliminated in the country to prevent the country from becoming a militarized country. Currently, Germany has only about 178,000 active frontline personnel with about 145,000 in reserve. A total of 710 aircraft and on-land armament of nearly 5,000 of various kinds is available at the disposal of the German army.
