Global Firepower website named strongest military powers in the world. According to the website, the US is ranked first, Russia is second and China is third. The States takes the lead because of military spending, while Russia was ranked second owing to more than 15,000 tanks.
Vadim Fersovich, independent military expert:
"This rating is another comparison of the incomparable. Russia has been developing military technology very actively. Russian volley fire systems are a lot better than Western analogues, and there is a lot that Western countries need to catch up with Russia at this point. In America, they widely advertise their superiority in everything. However, when you look at the numbers, it turns out that all this talk is nothing but self-promotion. The Americans have no understanding of their own firepower. The basis of firepower is rocket weapons and missile systems. Russia traditionally surpasses all countries in this field."
