It is no secret that the United States is one of the countries with the most powerful military in the world. Compared to other countries, Uncle Sam’s country is more advanced in technology. It also has a large number of human resources (HR) and military personnel, at least 1.4 million.
The budget of the local government is also no joke: 601 billion yen, equivalent to 80,000 rupees. The number of tanks belonging to the US military is also high at 8,848. Not surprisingly, the US has a PowerIndex of 0.072, which is better than any other country in the world.
Apart from the United States, Russia’s military power is not weak. It has a budget of $845 billion, equivalent to 1.2 trillion rupees. Russia is known to have the largest number of tanks in the world, with 15,000 in its arsenal.
Russia has 3,429 military aircraft, second only to the United States. There is at least 766,000 military personnel in Russia. Part of its military is stationed in Syria, where civil war continues.
Over the past century, China has become a world power, both economically and militarily. China has the largest number of military personnel in the world, numbering 2.33 million. The budget allocated to the military by local governments is also very large at $216 billion (equivalent to 3.07 trillion rupees).

Japan has long been known as a country with a very powerful military. Japan has 678 tanks, 1,613 fighter jets, and 16 attack submarines. Not only that, Japan’s military has only 247,173 personnel.
