2022 Military Strength Ranking



GFP | ANNUAL RANKING

Ranking the total available active military manpower by country, from highest to lowest.



The finalized Global Firepower ranking below utilizes over 50 individual factors to determine a given nation's PowerIndex ('PwrIndx') score with categories ranging from military might and financials to logistical capability and geography.

Our unique, in-house formula allows for smaller, more technologically-advanced, nations to compete with larger, lesser-developed ones and special modifiers, in the form of bonuses and penalties, are applied to further refine the annual list. Color arrows indicate year-over-year trend comparison (Increase, Stable, Decline).

Note: A perfect PwrIndx score is 0.0000 which is realistically unattainable in the scope of the current GFP formula; the smaller the PwrIndx value, the more powerful a nation's theoretical fighting capability is (by conventional means as nuclear capability is not taken into account).
