Ranking the military powers of the Asia-Pacific region.



An arms race is well underway in Asia as China asserts its growing power by various means resulting in potential adversaries attempting to keep pace. The primary point of contention remains the resource-rich islands of the South China Sea that are claimed by many of the regional powers (including China, Japan, and Vietnam). Beyond these powers, those nations bordering the Pacific Theater are included in this listing for comparison. Color arrows indicate year-over-year trend comparison (Rise, Neutral, Fall).
