Even though Ireland had a huge financial crisis which lead to a bailout of €65.5 billion from the European Union. Ireland has payed back it's debt fully and is now looked as the “poster boy of Europe", a nation that other European countries can look up to. It is also increasing it's defense budget each year.
Ireland is officially a Neutral nation, but before their independence they beat the British Empire! Even though Ireland is a small country it is a modern western nation, with one of the best trained armies, navy and airforce in Europe. As a peaceful country, which means it is very safe, 416 troops are currently deployed around the world on behalf of the United Nations, with 210 and 116 Irish soldiers on the front line of peace keeping in Lebanon and Syria.
Ireland is the most friendliest country in the world with great relations with all world powers especially USA & UK! A very important player in the European Union, United Nations, European Organisation of ...more
Although they don't have a large military, they need not worry.
Any direct threat to Ireland would be intolerable to their neighbours.
The French and British military would be there very quickly, and the Americans a bit latter.
That is a formidable defense capability - at a very low cost to Ireland.
Since joining NATO its military has modernized receiving a lot of technology from other NATO members such as the United States and United Kingdom.
Improving in every aspect
This nation can now officially defeat the United Kingdom. These guys have advancing technology, and one of the best strategies in Europe. It should totally be number one. - uklin
Albania didn't defeat serbia in 1999, NATO defeated serbia and narrowminded serbian politicans helpped them a lot. Three fingers upV 3 Comments
Altough they do no have the most modern equipment, they are one of the best trained.
The Portuguese always faced armies much bigger, but almost always got around the numbers and won. With a little help of the british sometimes...
Portugal would easily take over Spain in 9 monthsV 1 Comment
Forget Norway, Denmark might be small but they are comparable to many powerful nations. They can hammer Portugal to pieces.

Austria has an extremely powerful military for its size. They are actively involved in Kosovo, Lebanon, and Bosnia-Herzegovina.
Yea I think Bulgaria should be in it
Strong army once during the comunist regimen, the strongest on the Balkans at that time, an army that half of Europe couldn't have afforded to engage in a war with, but having most of it's millitary equipment scrapped and men force reduced gradually as a condition for NATO membership, because of the economical crisis that appeared after the dissolution of the Soviet Union as the economy of the country no longer was able to provision the army.
Bulgaria has maybe the strongest air force it consists of 3 Mig-29 and some old trash! It also has 30 000 man power armed with AK - 74 and AK - 47! Half of those 30 000 men are drinkers and drug addicts!
Bulgaria sold her tanks to Macedonia in 1993, and Macedonia eventually scrapped them for money!
Half of those 30 000 men are drinkers and drug addicts!
Ohh and don't forget that we have 6 warships - 3 frigates, 2 rusty 60 years old submarines and a minesweeper!
You can't beat what doesn't exist.
They have no army at all. Not even kidding
Strongest in Europe! Former USSR
Well done Kosovo I am so happy you have independence from stupid Serbia Inspiring name is kosovo

Although it is an extremely small country located in the Middle East, it has a great monarchy system and an incredibly strong invincible military (compared to Arab countries of course). The 6 million population of Jordan remain until now the best and most persistent when it comes to protecting one's country. To add to that and wrap it up, it's trade isn't bad at all, in Irbid, many clothes are made/sewed (handmade) and sent to the US and different parts of the world.
I didn't know Jordan is in Europa
We have A HIGHLY trained military.
quality over quantity
England's army is around 17th spot
