"War does not determine who is right - only who is left." - Bertrand Russell

Since 2006 GlobalFirepower (GFP) has provided a unique analytical display of data concerning 136 modern military powers. The GFP ranking is based on each nation's potential war-making capability across land, sea and air fought with conventional weapons. The results incorporate values related to resources, finances, and geography with over 55 different factors ultimately making up the final list. The results provide an interesting glimpse into an increasingly volatile global landscape where war seems all but an inevitability.
The 2019 GFP values are in the process of being compiled for the new year and we hope to have the new rankings available in the coming weeks. Due to the sheer volume of data, this process takes some time to finalize. We appreciate your patience as the new information comes online! For 2019 Moldova will be added based on visitor request. Consideration is also being given to inclusion of consolidated European Union and NATO power - currently the nations making up these powers are listed individually.
