• Japan
• Pakistan
• Canada

This ranking is based taking into consideration aspects such as combat, troop movement, experience, skill, warfare, weapons, training, and intelligence amongst others. Keep in mind it’s not an entirely numbers game. While debates, doubts, questions, and comparisons in regard with top military powers of the world will not end, let’s hope wars do!

While the size of the China’s army may be twice that of the size of US army, considering strike power, intelligence, strategy, utilization of advanced weapons, and modern equipment used, US emerges on top. Numbers associated with countries are indicators and should not be treated as wholly accurate, this because they are likely to constantly change in accordance with need of situation for every country. All the countries mentioned in this list have active warheads. Every country is strengthening its military power to ward of threats, this is happening at a rapid pace. God forbid, if nuclear weapons are used in the future, loss of life will be devastatingly huge. Wars only destroy and damage, they should be avoided. Let us hope and pray this world does not witness the brutality of another world war.
