Welcome to FutureBattles!

World's best quantitative and qualitative database for military strength and equipment rankings. Our rankings include 111 existing countries and powerful militant groups.


The Combined Global Military Force Projection Score attempts to measure the ability of countries to fight a "fast war" with existing military assets, that is, before factories in the homeland can make a difference on the battlefield. Alliances and access to friendly bases abroad are not accounted for. Rankings are purely based on materials and quantifiable means, important factors such as tactical thinking, command structure, morale in battle and national unity are excluded.
