A world known defence website, Military Direct’s study states that China has the strongest military force in the world while India stands at number four. Military Direct study report says about the US that, “despite their biggest military budgets, comes in 2nd place with 74 points, followed by Russia with 69, India at 61 and then France with 58. The U.K. just about makes the Top 10, coming in 9th place with a score of 43”.
The study said the “ultimate military strength index” was calculated after taking into consideration various factors including budgets, the number of inactive and active military personnel, total air, sea, land and nuclear resources, average salaries, and weight of equipment.
Based on these scores, which account for budgets, men, and things like air and navy capacity, does suggest that China would have an upper hand in a hypothetical super conflict. China has the strongest military in the world, scoring 82 out of 100 points in the index, it noted.
The world’s biggest military spender with a budget of USD 732 billion per year is the USA. China comes second with USD 261 billion. Military Direct Study report says that India is with the lowest defence budget, USD 71 billion among the top four countries.

"USA wins in an aerial war with 14,141 total airships vs Russia with 4,682 and China with 3,587. The Russian Federation wins in a land war with 54,866 vehicles vs the USA with 50,326 and China with 41,641,” it mentioned.
