Authored By Staff Writer | Last Updated: 4/3/2014

War time resources dictate the need for an active reserve force though not all nations are capable of carrying active reserve formations. As with active frontline personnel, these numbers tend to favor those nations composed of a large base population, large defense budget and (often times) currently active operations.
