Armored Fighting Vehicle Strength by Country (2023)
LAND SYSTEMS | ARMOR
Ranking total Armored Fighting Vehicle fleet strength by country, from highest to lowest.
The AFV/APC gives muscle to the ground advance. GFP tracks this value as an extension of the overall ground force capability for each country considered for the annual GFP ranking. Examples of AFV/APC types include the American M2 Bradley, the Russian/Soviet BMP/BTR series, various MRAPs (Mine-Resistant, Ambush-Protected), and other similar wheeled or tracked solutions employed by various powers. Totals also include mortar carriers. Products currently under development or on order heading into the upcoming year are NOT taken into account.
Data presented on this list is through 2023.
NOTE: In a shift from previous reviews, the AFV/APC list now attempts to include all manner of front-line, second-line, and support / logistical vehicles in the total (this includes APCs, IFVs, MRAPs, utility, engineering, resupply types and similar but excludes tracked tanks). As such, estimates are made when official data is not available.
