All countries including the US, Russia, China endeavour to create powerful armies to combat domestic and international threats to their safety and security. The requirements of the enterprise include human capital, innovative technology and a thriving modern economy. 

The following countries represent the most lethal ground combat forces of the world: 

World’s Most Powerful Army – 5th Spot – France 

The French Army will be a lethal and capable force as the country remains committed politically to being an influential entity in world politics. It has effective ground forces along with modern command and communications equipment.

Further, the French government is committed to ensuring that there is a thriving domestic arms industry. In recent times, it has assumed a greater role in the military and security apparatus of the European Union. 

In terms of operations, it has considerable experience with combat from low to medium arcs. It has served in the Wars on Terror using both regular and elite forces. The professional setup of the army makes it employable across a wide range of terrains and territory.

The French Army also enjoys the capability and support of the Marine Nationale and the Air Force for effective battlefield strike and transportation. 

World’s Most Powerful Army – 4th Spot: India 

The Indian Army stands alongside the world’s most elite ground combat forces due to its stress on technological advancement as well as combat operations experience.

The Army has successfully contended a wide range of domestic and international threats such as the Maoist insurgency and Pakistan supported the insurgency in Kashmir as well as border combat with Pakistan and China.

The Indian Army has provided a backbone to the aggressive foreign policy of the country while deadline with state-sponsored terrorism and the issue of Kashmir. 

Earlier, India faced a technological disadvantage in terms of equipment however, now it buys warfare armaments from Russia, United States, France and Israel among others. It has become a formidable force of the world with consistent training and equipment updating.

World’s Most Powerful Army – 3rd Spot: 

The Russian Army faced a major setback at the end of the Cold War, losing a majority of its access to resources, political clout and manpower. The capability of the force suffered from the use of outdated and unmaintained equipment.

However, in the 2000s, improvements in the economy allowed for the expansion of the technological base of the army. The increased investment in the elite forces allowed them to win the war in Chechnya and Georgia.

In 2014, it successfully seized Crimea from Ukraine. The Army plays a central role in the foreign policy and international affairs of the country. 

The Russian Army will remain a formidable force for a long time, however, there are significant challenges to its operations. The Army has created a “hybrid” model for manpower, stuck between the old conscription model and the volunteer system for the elite forces. 

World’s Most Powerful Army – 2nd Spot – United States

Since 1991, the Army of the United States has been the gold standard of ground combat forces for the world. The Army’s 2003, operation in Iraq is one of the most successful feats of ground combat since the Cold War.

The US Army has continued its field operations in Iraq and Afghanistan. It has invested in military innovation and all material has been upgraded for modern networked warfare. The US Army has the world’s largest supply of reconnaissance drones allowing it to connect observation with accurate fires. 

It faces the challenges of sustained warfare since it launched the Wars on Terror such as organisational exhaustion.

World’s Most Powerful Army – China

The People’s Liberation Army (PLA) of China has engaged since the 1990s, in a reform of its ground forces. The PLA since the reforms has become a commercial organisation apart from being a military one, taking control of several small enterprises. The growth of the Chinese economy and the boom of the 2000s allowed the funding in the Army to innovate and change the nature of the PLA to a modern military organisation. Reforms have included modern equipment upgrading, training and professionalisation of the force.

The PLA shares its funding with sea and air counterparts as china no longer solely relies on ground power for its security measures. Further, the PLA has been unable to detach itself from the factional struggles in the Chinese Communist Party.
