European Powers Ranked by Military Strength Ranking
Modern Europe has been Ground Zero for both of the global wars of the 20th Century.
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 31countries included in this listing.
