2017 Military Strength Ranking - Brazil #17 in the ranking

The complete Global Firepower list for 2017 puts the military powers of the world into full perspective.


The complete Global Firepower list for 2017 puts the military powers of the world into full perspective.

The finalized Global Firepower ranking relies on over 50 factors to determine a given nation's PowerIndex ('PwrIndx') score. Our formula allows smaller, though more technologically-advanced, nations to compete with larger, lesser-developed ones. Modifiers (in the form of bonuses and penalties) are added to further refine the list. Some items to observe in regards to the finalized ranking:

+ Ranking does not simply rely on the total number of weapons available to any one country but rather focuses on weapon diversity within the number totals to provide a better balance of firepower available (i.e. fielding 100 minesweepers does not equal the strategic and tactical value of fielding 10 aircraft carriers).
+ Nuclear stockpiles are NOT taken into account but recognized / suspected nuclear powers receive a bonus.
+ Geographical factors, logistical flexibility, natural resources and local industry influence the final ranking.
+ Available manpower is a key consideration; nations with large populations tend to rank higher.
+ Land-locked nations are NOT penalized for lack of a navy; naval powers ARE penalized for lack of diversity in available assets.
+ NATO allies receive a slight bonus due to the theoretical sharing of resources.
+ Current political / military leadership is NOT taken into account.

For 2017 there are a total of 133 countries included in the GFP database.
