15 Countries With The Strongest Armies In The World (9)

Since time immemorial, human communities have built up strong military land forces to defend their territories against external aggression, and to also maintain internal peace, order and stable government. Usually, nations with greater military capabilities always emerge victorious in battle.

Battles in the past were fought using rather crude weaponsand techniques. Before the invention of sophisticated weapons, the strength of a country’s army was determined to a greater extent by the number of trained fighters they had. This has since changed with technological advancement, and the capabilities and might of an army are determined by a number of factors, such as the quality and quantity of weapons available for use in warfare, the number of trained soldiers, funding, weapon diversity, geographical factors, and military tactics and expertise. Based on these factors, it is now possible for smaller countries with advanced technology to compete with or even maintain a stronger army than larger countries with a teaming population. Wars in Afghanistan, Syria, and Vietnam have in fact proven this assertion to be true.

Relying on these factors, fifteen countries have made our list of countries with the strongest army.
