Globalfirepower named "the most powerful countries in Europe" for 2021

Global Firepower (GFP) has published a ranking of the strongest armies in Europe for 2020. The calculation of the "power" of an army is made taking into account more than 50 criteria, but without taking into account the presence of a nuclear weapons.


In addition to the size of the army, the amount of military equipment and other things, the level of financing of the military sphere, transport infrastructure, access to oil products and other factors that may affect the combat effectiveness of the army are taken into account.

The rating is formed according to the principle "the smaller the PwrIndx (power index), the stronger the country". According to this formula, the maximum indicator of military power should be 0.0000, but this has not been achieved by any army in the world.

The ten most powerful armies in Europe at the end of 2020 looks like this: Russia comes out on top with an indicator of 0,0796. The second and third places are taken by France and the United Kingdom with ratings of 0.1681 and 0.1997. The fourth place was taken by Turkey with 0.2118, and the fifth by Italy with 0,2139. Germany is sixth with a rating of 0,2529. It is followed by Spain with 0,3274, Poland with 0,4202, Ukraine with 0,4413 and Switzerland with 0,5027.

If you look at the world ranking, Russia is in second place, behind the United States with 0,721. China is in third place with 0,0858, India is in fourth with 0,1214. The world's top ten also includes armies (in descending order): Japan, South Korea, France, Great Britain, Brazil and Pakistan.

Ukraine, ranked 9th in the European ranking, is 25th globally.

        Authoritative resource. There are, of course, some conventions and assumptions, but the assessment criteria take into account several dozen defining statistical parameters, as a result of which the rating itself looks quite objective. Deserves attention.

          That's right, today the Russian army is the first in Europe and the second in the world. However, experts say that China is progressing strongly and predict rapid growth for it.

    On paper, Ukraine is strong, but in reality the equipment is so worn out that it cannot cope with Hungary either. Aviation modernization is just conditional and will not add combat effectiveness. Component problems cannot be solved in wartime. We have already seen mobilizations ...

    Fuflorating shows that Armenia has risen, although in real life everyone understands that 30% of the last year's army remained from its army. How can a country that actually signed a surrender rise in the rating?)))))) For a campaign, the rating is written playing solitaire at work))))

            Mandate in Karabakh for 5 years. If Azerbaijan wants to continue the banquet, it will not agree on the extension and the peacekeepers will quietly leave.
            Next will be the second series. Is it possible to place bets, will the Armenians hold out for more than 5 days, or will the Azerbaijanis set a new record, breaking 08.08.08?

          Ikhtamnett were there, as were the Russian volunteers and possibly the Cheka, but were the units of the Armenian army involved, not individual soldiers? All the same, the difference is huge, the army is a war machine, and the militia / volunteers are stupidly loitering ragamuffins, sometimes armed.

            Draftees from Armenia officially serve in Karabakh (they served until the last conflict), making up 30% of the entire conscript contingent of the Artsakh army (according to the British military department, up to 50%, Azerbaijan counts up to 60%) are officially located in the military unit of the Armenian army. It is hard to imagine that they could "not participate".
            In fact, the entire mob potential of Karabakh is 35-38 thousand people (men, including the rear command, legless and disabled people), of which, in some incomprehensible way, 20 thousand permanent armed forces and 30 thousand are recruited.

        Why do you think Armenia has more than 3000 dead? Armenia, however, presents only its own data; it does not present the data of the seperative regime as for the losses of Armenia. And what do you think, where did so many tanks, air defense and other equipment in Karabakh come from from the Armenian side? Do you think someone will sell weapons to an unrecognized republic? All these weapons were officially bought or transferred to Armenia, and she, in turn, placed them in Karabakh.

          Because they died in an armed conflict, our citizens also lay their heads in Novorossiya, but the Russian army is not yet taking part in the war.

                Azerbaijan did not fight with Karabakh (Karabakh is an integral part of Azerbaijan). Karabakh is the territory of Azerbaijan that was held by the separatist junta with the support of the Armenian government. Azerbaijan conducted operations to clean up its territories from separatists and terrorists, supported by the authorities and military of the Republic of Armenia. In fact, Azerbaijan fought with Armenia in the territories of Azerbaijan occupied by Armenia.

                      Elementary Watson.
                      1 and 2 in this case does not interest me. These are all twists of politics, nothing more.
                      The lack of widespread recognition for 30 years did not prevent NK from existing, just as it does not prevent the existence of the Turkish part of Cyprus, Kosovo, the Pakistani part of Jammu and Kashmir. Oh yes, there are also Muslims. Is it different? Yes?

                      There were no separatists and terrorists in NK. There were Armenians there. Just Armenians who did not want to live in Azerbaijan and achieved independence with weapons.
                      The US population did the same at one time. Why not call them terrorists and separatists?
                      The Irish did not want to live in the British Empire. Are they terrorists and separatists? And all of Africa? And the Poles with the Finns?
                      Yes, they were officially recognized. But the method of gaining independence was the same.
                      You understand very well that if the Armenians had conquered the territory 100 years ago, everyone would have recognized the right of the strong, as has been the practice for millennia. If NK were a part of Armenia in the USSR, it would have gone free with internationally recognized borders.
                      It's just that now politicians have learned to deftly wag with their goose and confuse the obvious with verbal lace.
                      No, Anar, this is all flawed logic. This is labeling and defaming an opponent. This is military propaganda, nothing more.
                      I do not understand why do this now, after the victory of Azerbaijan?
                      In 5 years not a single Armenian will remain in NK. So this low propaganda trick is no longer needed and in Russia it will not convince anyone. If only because Russia itself has been the object of defamation for hundreds of years. We have an innate nose for this.
                      Regarding the third question.
                      Above, I have already spoken about the perverse practice of modern politics. It's the same here. War no longer counts as war, so misunderstanding. The word occupation is no longer used - it is now called the restoration of democracy. Has the United States occupied Iraq and half of Syria? Yes, never, this is fraternal help.
                      In general, if you speak in modern political language, then forget such an undemocratic word as occupation - say assistance in democracy. If you want to use classical terminology, then remember: the territories of all countries without exception are the result of occupation. Even the territory of island Japan.

    Ukraine, ranked 9th in the European ranking, is 25th globally.

    Apparently the analysis included: pk. "Ukraine", square "Zaporozhye", 3 boats from the USA, mortars "Hammer", and 6 Turkish UAVs. But more seriously, Ukraine itself does not know how much the country's population is today, and how many migrant workers are outside its borders .. Since 2014, not a single plan for conscription has been implemented. The Kharkov tank, in 2019, repaired 9 tanks, and only assembled a new one. Everything that she has for today, everything was pulled into the zone to the Donbas, leaving only Avakovs (Nazis) inside to maintain order.

      Yes, they have been unable to cope with the militia for many years, although they are trying to the fullest. Although, if by a strong-willed decision Ilovaisk and Debaltsevo are appointed as peremogs (No, it is better this way - Great Peremogs fellow ), then yes, the most powerful No. armed force throughout Europe. And only because of their inherent peacefulness, Ukrainian forces have not yet entered Moscow in tanks ... no, this is too shallow, let there be the Astrakhan-Arkhangelsk line, which was already outlined by the genius Fuhrer of Germany and all Europe.

    Even in terms of its cunning indicators (the power index for some reason should tend to 0) in Europe, Russia is in first place, in the world in second, as others have determined using their rating methods. Today I read in "Military Materials" that Poland conducted exercises to repel a potential enemy (it is clear who). The Poles were stunned by the outcome of the exercises. In the exercises, they used their capabilities, which are expected only in the future, and even then, after 5 days, they were completely defeated, and Russian troops were stationed at the Vistula. By this time, naturally, NATO had not even taken any decisions to protect Poland and the Tribalts. Like this.

      And then, accordingly, the Vistula-Oder operation, at least blow off the dust from the 1945 maps. Just like in the Soviet song: "If necessary, we will repeat." But who needs it and why? Well, perhaps for the Polish generals to shake out more dough from the Diet for defense, because the greater the cash flow, the easier it is to scoop out of it into your flask.

        Interestingly, in the legend of the exercises were the armies of England and France, which are obliged to come to Poland's aid?
        Judging by the fact that Germany's assistance was not taken into account, the result of the exercises was the return of Silesia and Pomerania to Germany (of course, to protect the Poles from Soviet aggression).

              In a Catholic school, a nun teacher asks the kids who they want to be when they grow up. One girl replied: "I will be a prostitute." The nun fainted. They pump her out, she asks the girl: "Repeat, what did you say?" "I will be a priest."
              "Thank God! Otherwise I heard that you want to become a Protestant."

              This is the relationship between the Catholic and Protestant churches.

      China did not lose the war to Vietnam - learn materiel. India is a country with nuclear potential, aircraft carriers, nuclear submarines, etc. And the rating is funny for you, because Russia is in second place.

    Oh, those ratings! Let's try to consider a couple of three more positions. "Autonomy of defense spending" that is, the ratio of costs to the overall financial and economic condition. Including zvr countries. Again, I do not see an analysis of reserves. (It doesn't matter to eat or not). It is advisable not to measure the fighting efficiency. Otherwise, in reality, it is measured once and the one who is lower is generally out of the rating. There is also a proposal to introduce the concept of "unit combat value". Firepower, detection capability, radius and penetrability of air defense, how much you need to spend in order to "reset" it or at least disrupt the task. And to display such a postulate in the rating. Why ride on top?

    It is not clear what these coefficients are - the less, the steeper. And something is wrong with the number as a whole. USA = 0,721 Russia = 0,0796 (China = 0,0858) .... France = 0,1681 WBr = 0,1997. Logically, the States are in last place with their odds, haha. Zero missed after the decimal point? And why all the same, smaller coefficients give 1 st / 2/3 rd places -? Strange logic at Globalfirepower, and / or the author got it wrong.

    If a lower coefficient gives a higher place, then it is a "coefficient of weakness" and not a "coefficient of power". In general, in the furnace this crazy rating, do not care and forget.

    Hmm, our Ukrainian brothers from the site felt somehow offended. Here is Poroshenko: “According to Global Firepower, it is the Ukrainian army that is the strongest on the European continent among the armed forces of non-NATO countries. We are proud of our military! " - said Poroshenko. As it is not very fashionable. It seems that all the Buryat special forces tank divisions were defeated, but all the same, Russia rules. And here they are not measured by members, but by potentials. How long can Nenka hold out if the aggressor country really shows its teeth ?! This is what these ratings are about. America is with you !!!
