While an all-out battle may be the only way to truly determine which country has the strongest military, hopefully, we’ll never have to find out. But battle aside, how does someone determine who has the most powerful military in the world? Is it the number of soldiers in a country’s militia? Or the types of technology a country has built to defend itself? Or perhaps their military spending budget? Considering the aforementioned factors, resources like Global Fire Power, The Credit Suisse Report, and Nation Master, have allowed us to rank worldwide military powers with a good level of certainty.
