Latin American Powers Ranked by Military Strength

Latin America provides several fronts of instability in the current decade.

OVERVIEW



The GFP list makes use of over 55 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 2018 there are a total of 18 countries included in this listing.
