    What are the most fearsome powers and the states that have thestrongest army in the world?
    The Global Firepower website tries to answer this question by analyzing over 50 factors to determine the military offensive potential of the world's major countries (136 in total).

    L'index of military strength (PoweIndex) takes into account factors such as the availability and diversity of assets and armaments (fighter planes, tanks, naval units, etc.), overall military personnel, defense budget and total population (key consideration if compared to the potential of manpower in cases of need), the technological advancement of the Nation, the geographical, logistical, industrial and financial conditions, and obviously the number and influence of international allies.

    By combining these factors, a "perfect score" of 0.0000 is idealized, realistically unattainable within the formula. The nations that come closest to this score are therefore to be understood as the most "powerful" militarily.
    The ranking is constantly and constantly updated. The variations may be due to the wear and tear of equipment, the decrease in the workforce, the financial instability of the countries, and finally, any flows of population or resources. Here is the 2020 ranking!
