Reserve Military Manpower (2021)



MILITARY | PERSONNEL

Ranking the total available reserve military manpower by country, from highest to lowest.



The active reserve component is optional and strength varies between each global power today. Reserve Military Manpower tracks all those personnel considered under 'reserve status', these elements being available, on-call for service at any given moment. As of 2021, Reserve totals no longer include Paramilitary forces (found elsewhere on this site).

Data presented on this list is through 2021. Estimates are made when official data is not available.
