Middle East Countries Ranked by Military Power (2016)

Regardless of whatever leaders or groups are in power, peace continues to elude the Middle East.





The GFP list makes use of over 50 factors in our in-house formula to determine a given nation's Power Index ("PwrIndx") score. This provides the final ranking while also allowing smaller, more technologically-advanced, nations to compete with larger, lesser-developed ones. Some bonuses and penalties are added for refinement that, in the end, we hope presents an unbiased look into the potential conventional military strength of a world power.


There are a total of (15) countries of the Middle East represented in the GFP database.
