15 Most Powerful Armies In The World.




While one can argue for days about how the soldiers in an army are the key element to the power of a country’s military, the truth is it is a combination of several areas. The number of fighter jets and skilled pilots in use, the budget of the army in question and of course, whether the country has nuclear capability are some of the pieces that come together to make an army the most powerful in the world.




Possession of over 7000 nuclear weapons, 13000 weaponised aircraft and a spending of over $612 billion a year on defence makes the United States the most powerful army in the world in overall rankings.
