  • Total Railway Coverage by Country


    Railways are critical to military mobilization, industry and tactical flexibility.

    In terms of warfare, Railway Coverage allows for tactical flexibility and serves wartime industry as well as mobilization. Railways provide access to vital areas of a given nation and may be used to indicate a developed infrastructure. For the purposes of the GFP final ranking, the more usable roadway coverage the better a country's infrastructure.
