"War does not determine who is right - only who is left." - Bertrand Russell
Since 2006 GlobalFirepower has provided its unique analytical display of data concerning over 135 modern military powers. Our 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 rankings. The results provide an interesting glimpse into an increasingly volatile global landscape where war seems all but an inevitability.
