Global Firepower’s Military Strength Rankings for 2024

In contrast to the dominant military powerhouses highlighted in strength rankings, a closer examination unveils a stark contrast for nations struggling to enhance their defense capabilities. Global Firepower’s Military Strength Rankings for 2024 brings attention to the world’s least formidable armed forces, emphasizing the challenges faced by countries dealing with limited resources, strategic disadvantages, and internal conflicts.

The PowerIndex (PwrIndx) by Global Firepower evaluates a country’s military strength by considering over 60 factors, such as troop numbers, tanks, aircraft, and ships, along with economic stability and geographical size. A lower score on the PowerIndex signifies a stronger military, facilitating a thorough comparison based on manpower, equipment, and resources.

Countries With Least Rankings

These are the countries with the weakest armies in the world:

Bhutan (PwrIndx 6.3704): Bhutan is in the Himalayas and focuses on staying neutral and peaceful, which means its military is not very strong.

Moldova (PwrIndx 4.2311): This Eastern European country is landlocked and has a hard time building a strong military because of political and economic issues.

Suriname (PwrIndx 3.9038): In South America, Suriname has a small population and not many resources, so its military is not very powerful.

Somalia (PwrIndx 3.9006): Somalia has been dealing with conflicts, political problems, and economic challenges, which make it difficult for them to have a strong military.

Benin (PwrIndx 3.8912): This West African country faces challenges in building a strong military because of economic limitations and regional stability issues.

Liberia (PwrIndx 3.7262): Liberia is still recovering from civil wars and has economic challenges, which affect its efforts to rebuild a strong military.

Belize (PwrIndx 3.6437): A small country in Central America, Belize has difficulty building a strong military due to limited resources and geopolitical concerns.

Sierra Leone (PwrIndx 3.5433): Recovering from a long civil war, Sierra Leone struggles to build a strong military because of economic factors and post-war reconstruction.

Central African Republic (PwrIndx 3.5316): Ongoing conflicts and a fragile political situation make it hard for the Central African Republic to improve its military capabilities.

Iceland (PwrIndx 3.5038): Despite being known for peace and neutrality, Iceland has a small population and prefers diplomatic solutions, so its military is not very strong.

The United States has the strongest military globally, followed by Russia, China, and India. Pakistan is in ninth place, and Italy is tenth in global military rankings.
