Recent developments along the LAC have forced India and its citizens to concentrate on strengthening its armed forces. The present government has showcased its solidarity with the army and its commitment to modernize the armed forces several times. A recent report shows the outcome of the initiatives taken by the government.
China has the strongest military force in the world while India stands at number four, according to a study released on Sunday by defence website Military Direct.
“The USA, despite their enormous military budgets, comes in 2nd place with 74 points, followed by Russia with 69, India at 61 and then France with 58. The U.K. just about makes the Top 10, coming in 9th place with a score of 43,” said the study.
The study said the “ultimate military strength index” was calculated after taking into consideration various factors including budgets, number of inactive and active military personnel, total air, sea, land and nuclear resources, average salaries, and weight of equipment.
China has the strongest military in the world, scoring 82 out of 100 points in the index, it noted.
“Based on these scores, which account for budgets, men, and things like air and navy capacity, it does suggest that China would come out as top dog in a hypothetical super conflict,” it mentioned.
The world’s biggest military spender with a budget of $732 billion per year is the USA, it noted, adding that China comes second with $261 billion, followed by India at $71 billion. “China would win by sea, USA by air and Russia by land” in this hypothetical conflict, it said.
“USA wins in an aerial war with 14,141 total airships vs Russia with 4,682 and China with 3,587. The Russian Federation wins in a land war with 54,866 vehicles vs the USA with 50,326 and China with 41,641,” it mentioned.
China wins in a sea war with 406 ships vs Russia with 278 and the USA or India with 202, it said.
