OVERVIEW: Poland



For 2019 Poland is ranked 24 (of 137) out of the countries currently considered for the annual GFP review. It holds a PwrIndx rating of 0.4059 (0.0000 being perfect).
Each nation detailed on GlobalFirepower.com is assessed on individual and collective values. These values are processed through an in-house formula to generate the PwrIndx (PowerIndex) score which is used to establish the finalized GFP rankings for the current year. Keep in mind that some values are estimated when official numbers are not readily available. Otherwise official / semi-official values are used when possible.
