"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 145 modern military powers. The GFP ranking is based on each nation's potential war-making capability across land, sea, and air fought by conventional means. The results incorporate values related to manpower, equipment, natural resources, finances, and geography represented by 60+ individual factors used in formulating the finalized GFP ranks - which provide an interesting glimpse into an increasingly volatile global landscape where war seems all but an inevitability.
New to 2023 are Beliz, Benin, and Senegal. The new year also features an expanded focus on natural resouces (which now includes Natural Gas and Coal) as well as greater attention to shared borders and total number of bordering nations to one party.
