Tank Strength by Country


Tank strength continues to be the primary symbol of power for any modern land army.

Despite advancements made for the modern battlefield (namely armor-defeating guided munitions), the combat tank remains the primary spearhead for ground offensives combining the qualities of firepower, mobility protection into an all-in-one system. For the purposes of the GFP ranking, tank strength totals include Main Battle Tanks (MBTs) and and light tanks (those few still in service) but not dedicated Tank Destroyers (TDs) which some nations still rely on. Systems on order (heading into the next year) are not taken into account.
