Best Ground Force Armies In the World

The best ground forces. I picked them only because of their training and equipment. Note that they are just ground forces not spec ops units and we won't no who's the best unless the people on my list go to war. If you are going to vote only pick the ones you really think are the best and not because they're from your homeland. Thank you.

The Top Ten

1 Pakistan Army

Pakistan Army is the best army in the world. They are the best fighters. It has defeated the Indian Amy in 1965 and India have to go to the united nation after 17 days of war to help them to stop the war. In 1971 India won the war because of the rebellion in East Pakistan and with the help of the rebels and with the help of Russia and other countries who wanted to break Pakistan through a conspiracy. Having a big army do not count but the real thing is fighting with spirit, for a cause. In the near future, if there is a war between India and Pakistan, the world will witness how the Pakistani's will create a new history of the world.

Pakistan has not won a single war against India on the other hand India defeated Pakistan thrice

Also when Pakistan invaded India in 1971 Pakistan lost more than half its troops

The bravest army of the world who can defeat any army with their spirit of iman. They are peace loving but when others try to harm their country they can do anything for them. Love you pakistan army.

Pakistan Army is one of bravest and strongest army in the world. It has the spirit to fight for its religion(Islam), for its country and it's people..

I'm not a Pakistani but still I believe Pakistan has the bravest and the most courageous army in the world, there is no such country which can fight Pakistan, no army in this world can compete Pakistani army! India knows if they fight with Pakistan they will ni longer be on the world map! Keep it up Pakistan - French man

2 Indian Army

Indian army in 1965 went to UNO and appealed Pakistan to stop the war and bring Pakistan army back from India. They try to attack Pak army on border and in return when Pak army attacks then their media gives false reports against Pakistan army saying that Pakistan supports terrorism. No matter how much weapons they buy but they don't have enough spirit to fight against Pakistan.

The Indian Army ranks amongst the top 3 armies in the world, behind only China and the USA. India has a number of regiments, each braver than, if not equal to another regiment. Any war that Pakistan has fought with India, has only resulted in India's victory, thanks to its brave troops. India has one of the most powerful armoury in the world and more than advanced technology than even its civilians. Indian army can easily take down its dear neighbour Pakistan in a face off. India has brains and India's got brawns. Soon, India might as well leave behind its neighbours to become the most powerful army in the world.

India is trying to be peace full country. That's the reason why Pakistan is still in the world map. If the defense forces of India are unleashed than in a matter of hours they fact that country like Pakistan existed will be blown away

I think before posting anything, a website need to do a little research about the topic. I would recommend this website to read about history from various possible available sources about 1965 Info Pak War.

3 People's Liberation Army

Pakistan and China will have the power to control Asia in the future. As they are great allies

Don't know why Pakistan is on first spot? Do they just look for their country's name and vote without thinking? Even a child can say China has best ground Military at present. Most of US power come from its Naval and Air force wing whereas China derives it power from PLA.

But my fellow Chinese bros beware, we Indians will soon catch u and give a tough competition.
Love from India

Pakistan Zindabad

Very big army with more than 100 Miljons Man

4 Korean People's Army Ground Force

Though I don't support North Korea, you have to admit they have an insane army. Mainly their nearly 6 million paramilitary that would crush or at least put up a good fight for anyone who wants a fight. Overall their are people better like the USA but for ground forces, they are extremely strong. But seriously they need to crack down their budget and buy some food for their people.

I don't think so

Korean People's Army is strongest army.

They are really crazy.Even they die for their homeland.

5 United States Army

If America is the super power so why Americans army can't defeat taliban in Afghanistan from last 17th years America is still in war. What happened in somalia in 1994 when black hawk down or groups of soldiers were stuck which is rescue by Pakistani force if America is super power so why after 17 years war America can't defeat Vietnam or lose the battle. If America is power so why 911 happened in 2001 America have CIA FBI is the security agencies were sleeped when terrorists planned.

THey are the bet so shut up and put them 1

Just because the other armies are big and kill doesn't mean anything, it's who you kill. American soldiers are professionals, war fighting is life. Much like the Spartans, they don't farm, they don't work the mills, they train, for large scale combat on many fronts. American solders have been feared and respected in every conflict. Any nation in peril begs for American relief. And we ALWAYS oblige. Without political restraint America could decimate any foe without nuclear weapons in hours. America can project her might anywhere anytime in a way none can match combined. We try to use it to help those who can't help themselves.

The Best Army in the WORLD. Stands for what's right and not wrong, for the good of all, especially with the right regime like THE TRUMP REGIME! I am Emmanuel S. Koroma jr from LIBERIA.

6 Russian Ground Forces

What typer of army is this

Should be first place.

Because we the USA provided Afghan fighters with the weapons to shoot down the Russian helicopters and fight with

The Russian Ground Forces are experienced and have more tanks than any other army. Russia sells inferior equipment to India and Pakistan

7 Republic of Korea Army

One of the best armies in the world as they are constantly on the alert and face imminent threat from the North Korea.

The one who helped Korea during Korean war also known as "forgotten war" is THE Philippines! Over 7000 filipino sent in Korea to join the war. They give their life to help Korea even if not their home land..

8 Turkish Army


The Turkish land forces are one of the best in the world, they know how to respect peace and religion and obey international law. The army is often overlooked however is built to last and sustain conflicts within or without its borders such as like in Korea. The army is professional and experienced and often participates in peace keeping efforts and eliminates threats internationaly.

I'm from Pakistan and I love and respect all the Muslims as all knows that the world is made for non Muslims or Muslims always servive or fight to protect the Islam in the end of time all Muslims nations and there's armies are comes together becomes allies or fight with kafir or beat them but still we hope 2023 brings bright future for Muslims nation InshaAllah Ottoman empire are ready to rise once again under the supervision of turkey with all Muslims nations power. Pakistani army or Pakistani peoples are always with turkey these two countries will made all Muslims nation more strong and friendly to fight against non Muslims. May Allah Pak Grant us Eman or spirit to defeat non Muslims Ameen Sum Ameen..

I am from pakistan

9 Islamic Republic of Iran Army

A large and powerful military with an extensive influence in middle east and with a huge home -made military industry make them one of the most dangerous army in the world

They are really expert

They are brave because they are fighting for their country not for money or their government as it always was in a past few hundred years.

I agree - Nargiskhan

10 Egyptian Army

Because of the number of..

They are armed by science and faith and carry no fear from anyone, They'd devote themselves for death rather than their lands would be colonized.

They are very focused on their mission and are very keen if any country will challenge them

The Egyptian army is the most brave


The Contenders

11 Nepalese Army

Fearless fighter. No matter how many enemies are front of them

The bravest army troops in the world which was never under rule of any powerful nations... Jay Nepal

If a man tells you he is not afraid, he might be lying or he must be a gorkhali.

I don't believe this! We Know our history! Nepalese Army is THE BEST!

12 Nigerian Army

Nice one Nigeria


They are awesome but they don't have enough ammunition

Wallah Nigeria will destory the enemies

13 United States Marines

Hardest boot camp and best training.

Greatest military ever. Semper Fi brothers and sisters

If you want it done right the first time send the corp!

Marines go in first come out last & never leave a marine behind that is why we are the few & the proud!

14 Pakistan Pakistan Pakistan was established in 1947 and is located in South Asia. Islamabad is the capital city of Pakistan. Karachi, Lahore and Peshawar are other major cities of Pakistan. Urdu and English are official languages of Pakistan. World's second highest peak (K-2) and ninth highest peak (Nanga Parbat) are more.

Pakistan is the bravest army and not only pakistani soldiers but pakistani people are also very brave that they can sacrifice their lives for their country...They have Higher spirit than weapons.

No words for this brave and lionheart army...because they only want to be martyrs in the way of ALLAH

No doubt Pakistani soldiers are the best fighters. They defeated India in the 1965 war.

I love you pak army

15 Zimbabwe Defense Forces

We the best...wowww


Yes that's true

True it is the best

16 Serbian Army

German General August Von Mackeson was sent to defeat the Serbian Army in WWII after Austro-Hungary failed three times and were pushed back to Vienna by the Serbian Army. He describes the Serbian army this way. "Von Mackensen appears to have had great respect for the Serbian army and Serbians generally. Before departing to the Serbian front in 1914, he spoke to his men:

"You are not going to the Italian, Russian, or French front. You are going into battle against a new enemy - dangerous, tough, fearless and sharp. You are going to the Serbian front and Serbia. Serbs are people who love their freedom, and who will fight to the last man. Be careful this small enemy does not cast a shadow on your glory and compromise your successes"

We may not have the most modern equipment, but we have really brave soldiers who are always willing to protect their people and country. However, the problem with equipment could be solved soon, since Russia are our great allies and partners. I hope we'll get modernized soon.

Serbians, does not have equipment, but they born like good warriors

They have the bravest soldiers on earth, altrough they don't have such modern equipment, they fought heroicaly in all wars.

17 Philippine Army

Badass Military Troops Never Back Down.


For me they are the bravest of them all. Read the history!

They are more discipline than others because they never quit the battle

18 Bangladesh Army

I want to mention about east bengal regiment

Really, they are great!

Yes Bangladesh army is so brave

I love bangladesh army

19 England

Has the best training shouldn't be so low on the list

The British army is best trained I did 9 years Then 5 French Foreign Legion so know More than you Want To Be's
24449995 British
176398 French Legion

The British army train the American army.

The British army trains more than any other and is brave enough to still do a bayonet charge across open ground in the 21st century against machine fun fire. Zero casualties!. The British army is historically the most disciplined fighting force. with men who would stand up and wave their arms at the enemy if they where commanded to do so.

20 Greek Army

Beave army in the world

They would rather die for there country than leave knowing that they didn't do anything for there country

They commited 1st victory in world war 2 with no supplies or anything else only their proud spirit of freedom.

21 Australian Army

Proud to be Indian Australian!

Everyone believes that they have the best in the world, this list is dominated by nationalists with numbers on their side, China has 1.3 billion people and they are 2nd on this list, India has just over 1 billion people and they are 7th on the list, then America which has 300 million are 8th on the list. The only reason countries like those are so high is because this website chooses based on a voting system, if 3,000 people say China is better as opposed to 100 people saying Australia is better and proving it, China will be ranked higher because they have more votes, doesn't rely on proof just personal opinion. IF this website DID rely on PROOF then Australia would definitely by number 1 on this list. America would be down the bottom, after all this website is after best trained not largest.

Australia should be at least in the top 10, Australia has proved to many people that they will fight with Bravery, Loyalty and Integrity. The Australian's have always fought alongside their Allies and always come out successful.

In my opinion Australia has the bravest army out there, because we have fought the battle in Gallipoli and other places in World War 1. World War 2 We got bombed by the Japanese and we fought them off at Kokoda track. And we have fought in other wars that are still happening, and we have never backed down from a fight.

22 Uganda People's Defence Force

Yes, they are not only brave and strong but also the most disciplined Army in the region and Africa.

Actually, they should be among the 10most powerful and combat hardened in Africa

According to the conflicts that have so far erupted in Africa, it has only been Ugandan troops intervening to provide maximum security to people of that war torn country. countries like Rwanda, DR Congo, S.Sudan. Somalia, Burundi, Central African Republic, now Equatorial Guinea, and have succeeded in all wars, I think Ugandan troops is currently the most fighting and successful forces on the African continent

They are devorted

These have spread out the wing across Africa.they even look serious in their face

23 Sri Lankan Army

They had not very technical equipments like most powerful countries. but they defeated world's most dangerous terrorists in the world with out any facilities. they had the humanity. they didn't trouble the family members of terrorists therefore they should be the first.

Sri Lanka should be first because they defeated the most dangerous terrorists in the world as well as they are toppers from the inwardness and spiritual strengthness

#best army in the world

They defeated the world's most organized and dangerous terror group.

24 Israel Defense Forces

Israeli troops are coward and only in groups invade palastini children. They are courage less and puppet of USA in Middle East. They have no morale right to

Whoever created this list hates isreal..

Whoever made this is just clearly against Israel.. Israeli ground troops probably have some of the most experience and training out of the rest besides the fact that if they loose a war there familys and nation will be slaughtered by barbarian fundamentalists

This country is the best they are actually trained in many ways, towards great hatred they ahead of time in preparation. And the lessons learned from the past

25 Canadian Army

They continually aid the world in a way no other country can thanks to the rigorous and effective training that has been passed down from generation to generation and they keep a cool head at all times

All volunteers, trained to use their initiative to accomplish their mission with minimal support.

Very well trained. Very good combat troops.

Military doctrine at his best...

26 Afghanistan Army

I am from Afghanistan we fight for our culture and for other who loves us that why we make war because they start we will finish it

The best Muslim heroes love from pak

28 Saudi Arabia Army

Saudia and pakistan both are friends.

Saudi army and pakistan army is equal saudia is friend of Pakistan

The bravest

29 Tanzanian Army

One of the best in africa

My Tanzania... Or the.

Best in africa

Actually it is one of the worlds most powerful land force

30 South African Army

SANDF is the most active army in Africa with the most UN-Peace Keeping mission experience and participation. The only African country who produces its own military arsenal. The Rooivalk attack helicopter (a proudly South African product) managed to defeat the MK23 rebels in DRC within a few hours where other African countries and India had little to no success in months or even years. And to finish every thing the SANDF's training is a mix of IDF training combined with British SAS training. Bonus South Africa is the only African country to have produced Nuclear Weapons and the only country world wide to have voluntarily dismantle their nuclear arsenal for the greater good.

31 Ethiopian Army

Specially their ground force can compete with USA, Russia, Chaina in any war front.

The Ethiopian army is the best because they have no fear in their hearts and no enemy big and the battle of Adwa is a testament to this. During this war we fought with Italy which was one of the mightiest army at the time which but still the courageous Ethiopian army won.

When the Ethiopian army engaged at self defensing against foreign aggressors it directly gets directives from heaven, This can be easily ascertain by reading the Adwa battle, Ethiopia against Italian aggressors.

Live or die free.

32 New Zealand Army
33 Armenian Army

Armenian army is very well drilled highly motivated fight till the end cause there is no tomorrow very hostile neighbours that tried in the past to genocide the Armenian race

Brave people

34 French Army

Nice training, Nice weapons, nice Vehicle and Aircraft, but too few logistic power and outnumbered soldiers...

Strongest army in europe, small but modern and could be bigger in case of war. Not strong as USA, but could defeat any other oppoment.

Bigger ratio win/lose in the world in history. Then N°1 at war in the world. Today not so strong, but could change with other gvt.

Best Main battle tank, best self propered artillery, best anti-nav missiles, best multi-role aircraft, great experience on battlefield. Not n°1 in world but at least in 5 best with US, Russia, China, and Japan

35 Croatian Army

The Croatian army showed it's bravery and worth by defeating the Serbs, which were armed with the armour and equipment of the fourth biggest army in Europe, at the time, which was the Yugoslav National Army and it's paramilitary formations.
The Croatians are a peace loving race with an extremely beautiful country which they will defend loyaly and fiercely. Croatians have genes of stone and are natural and etremely brave warriors. This was all proven in the 91 to 95 war.

36 Liberian Army
37 Lesotho Army
38 Lebanese Army

It's the strongest army without weapons

39 German Army

Really good

40 Sudan's People Liberation Army

It is the best because there is no technology applied during the war

South Sudanese armies are strongest, because they liberated their people without being equipped with jets and tanks during their fighting with arabs of Sudan, I hope in future they will be the must powerful soldiers when they technology.


41 Iraq Army

Bravest army

42 Algerian Army
43 Chaaye Shishtam Army

44 France France France, officially the French Republic, is a sovereign state comprising territory in western Europe and several overseas regions and territories.

45 China China China, officially the People's Republic of China, is a sovereign state in East Asia. It is the world's most populous state, with a population of over 1.388 billion. It was established in 1949 by Chairman Mao, the president of the communist party. Its capital is Beijing. The major cities are Shanghai, more.

They have the biggest army in the world, and remember in the early 20th century China was doing so badly as a country and they only had ground forces in world war 2. And look how well the country is doing now- it has vastly improved. USA might have the best military/navy/air force in the world that is because they have the most advanced technology. Now which two countries are doing the best in economy China and USA. I bet very soon China will have the largest and economy and the strongest army.

46 Sierra Leone Army
47 Azerbaijani Army
48 Fiji Fiji Fiji, officially the Republic of Fiji, is an island country in Melanesia in the South Pacific Ocean about 1,100 nautical miles northeast of New Zealand's North Island.

This army is so strong, they use their water guns and shoot fiji water

49 Canadian Armed Forces

Simply the best, easily the most versatile and elite infantry. With a great international reputation, but is always under shown by our allies because we do not boast as they do.

Canada has never been in a war shut up the country Jordan will kick your ass

Our equipment is out of date and we are completely outnumbered

Canada has great army and will beat Jordan cause of better equiped and trained
