NATO Projected Firepower (2023)


NATO consists of 30 member states with twenty-seven of these residing in Europe alone.


The GFP method of determining theoretical NATO combat strength goes beyond simply tallying all resources from all available member states. Instead, it utilizes an approach which sees a minimum 25% commitment to each category by each participating nation to reach projected totals (the assumption being that no one power could commit all of its actual, available fighting forces to a total war scenario). The Russian invasion of neighboring Ukraine in 2022 has undoubtedly become a solid recruitment tool for NATO which adds Finland in 2023 with Sweden waiting in the wings.

The 31 NATO Member states as of April 2023 are: Albania, Belgium, Bulgaria, Canada, Croatia, Czechia, Denmark, Estonia, Finland (inducted 2023), France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Montenegro, Netherlands, North Macedonia, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Turkey, the United Kingdom, and the United States.

Russian military strength (assuming 75% optimal availability) is also presented below for comparison.

The inclusion of Finland now bolsters NATO manpower, armored vehicle strength, artillery firepower, total naval assets available, and labor force while also expanding the NATO border along Russia's Western flank - allowing for additional temporary and permanent staging areas in the event of all-out war.
