What do you think?

Hard to believe United Kingdoms is that low. I thought they were like the second strongest. What about Russia? If this is correct I am amazed at Germany. They really cameback... I also question Sweden's place. Im wandering just what this judges. Because it seems off that Japan would be considered in a military list.

India is actually a relatively poor country with so many people,its hard to support them all with that little land,roughly 1/3 the size of the US.Besides,Hindu is 80% of India's religion,meaning that religion is more strongly intervened in people's lives than India's government,at least what sources say,I guess we need a real Indian to tell us that.

China should be second,its military is becoming vast and strong,and economically,its getting stronger despite communism,but the Soviet Union was communist and still it became a world power.The UK,I think is more stronger than Germany,but equal to France.Japan,though not militarilly strong,is economically strong.

Powerful countries in what? military or economics are political influence? Or all three? How are Sweden and Norway on this? Russia surley more than Sweden/Norway.

i think what they meant was either measured n economic growth (which china should be first or at least second) or by technological advancement which is related to the first

Sweden? Are you joking? And Norway

edit: I think I get it, I believe they've combined the other "top ten-" maps into that, making some sort of overall ranking.

This is nonsense though, even if the government is reducing the military at an alarming rate.

That pic desperatly needs an explanation test, as it isn't entirely clear what exactly its ranking. 'Power' can be just about anything.

Even Palestine is stronger than Sweden/Norway military wise!


IIRC, Sweden has just shy of 300 MBTs (one of the best varients of the Leopard II, no less), 800+ infantry figting vehicles, 1300 APCs, a small profesional army in peace time with a conscript army that can be mobilised when the need arises. An airforce composed of what will eventualy number 180 JAS Gripens (not including another 2 dozen or so trainers), and they still have 200 or so of the older Viggens, plus everything else. Oh, and one of the most advanced conventional navies in the world, including the new stealth corvettes. Indeed, for a country of its size (populationwise), Sweden can pack quite a punch, though apparently not big enough a punch for the likes of Styrbiorn.

What does Palestine have again? A police force and some comparitivly poorly equipt militants?

That's because the numbers you posted will be halved or more in five years if the government gets what it want. But I guess it's for the better, the Russians aren't exactly threatening nowadays.

What exactly will they be cutting in half? I think if anything, they'll just let the old stuff go and keep a more stream lined new force, so the 200 old viggens go with the 180 Grippens to replace them, and so on.

Basicly everything, the Gripen force will be reduced to 80 (probably by selling the rest to other countries), etc. Most of the cutting will be to the conscription (anti-Russian invasion-)army though, and is supposed to be replaced with a smaller high-tech army to be used internationally. I'm not sure the government knowns what it wants either. Somewhere in the mess that is my apartment I have a copy of the military magazine all ex-soldiers get with some article covering it, but frankly, I have no idea where to start looking for it.

BTW, the only proffessional units now are those of the special forces.

I think this map isnt very clear or doesnt show the truth. I dont think Canada, Sweden nor Norway would be included in such a list based on military power ranks. So as Great Britain.

And where is Russia, where is Israel (to mje, the most powerful one), where is Iran and where is Turkey if this is based on militarical power? Also India is too powerful and developing too fast.

That map is definitely not about military power. If you follow the link there's another map covering that.

here, from the same site:
