Southeast Asian Powers Ranked by Military Strength

No stranger to warfare, current events forecast another war to come for the Southeast Asian region.

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 9 countries included in this listing.
