Indian military is the fourth strongest in the world.The Miltary Direct's study releases the list of the most powerful militaries in the world. It considers various factors while ranking the military strength of a country. The factors considered are the air, sea, land, and nuclear capabilities of the country to arrive at the 'Ultimate Military Strength Index'. The other considerations include the defense budget, average salaries of the defense personnel, weightage of the equipment possessed, and also the number of active and inactive defense personnel.
China with an index of 82/100, stands in the first rank. The USA with 74/100, Russia with 69/100 rank in the second and third places. India with an index of 61/100 stands in fourth place. In aerial war, the USA is in a superior position. Russia stands first in a land war and China is superior in sea warfare. This is only a theoretical index depending on the military equipment.
The Indian Army, in my personal opinion, beats the other three in terms of the dedication of our army in their duty to the country.
