Tank Strength by Country (2021)



LAND SYSTEMS | ARMOR

Ranking total combat tank fleet strength by country, from highest to lowest.



GFP tracks frontline armored combat systems for each national power taken into consideration for the annual ranking. Track-over-wheel designs are factored in from all branches of service (Army, Marines). Vehicle examples include the German 'Leopard 2' (pictured) and Russian T-90 Main Battle Tanks (MBTs) as well as light-class systems such as the 'Stingray' Light Tank of Thailand. Products currently under development or on order heading into the upcoming year are NOT taken into account.

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