Asian-Pacific Powers Ranked by Military Strength Ranking
The Asia-Pacific region is embroiled in a full-fledged arms race with new programs being funded and alliances being forged.
The GFP list makes use of over 50 factors in our in-house formula to determine a given nation's Power Index ('PwrIndx') score. This provides the final ranking while also allowing smaller, more technologically-advanced, nations to compete with larger, lesser-developed ones. Some bonuses and penalties are added for refinement that, in the end, we hope presents an unbiased look into the potential conventional military strength of a world power.
For 2017 there are a total of 26countries included in this listing.
