According to a study released by the defense website Military Direct, India stands at number four in military strength.
Military Direct calculated the “ultimate military strength index” of global countries by considering various factors, including the number of inactive and active military personnel, total air, sea, land, and nuclear resources, budgets, average salaries, and weight of equipment.
As per the study, China has the strongest military force in the world, with a score of 82 out of 100 points in the index.
Despite their enormous military budgets, the US stood at 2nd place with 74 points, followed by Russia with 69, India with 61, and then France with 58. Meanwhile, the UK made it to the Top 10, coming in 9th place with 43 points.
“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,” the study said.
The US stood as the world’s biggest military spender with a budget of USD 732 billion per year, followed by China with USD 261 billion and India with USD 71 billion.
“China would win by sea, the USA by air, and Russia by land” in this hypothetical conflict,” said the study.
Based on airships, the US topped the table with 14,141 airships, followed by Russia with 4,682 and China with 3,587.
Likewise, the Russian Federation dominates in a land war with 54,866 vehicles, followed by the USA with 50,326 and China with 41,641.
Meanwhile, China dominates in a sea war with 406 ships, followed by Russia with 278 and the USA or India with 202.
