Statistics

Japan's military, the oddly named Self Defense Forces, is extremely powerful. While it flies under the radar - intentionally so - if a shooting war were to break out in East Asia, Japan would  hold its own against South Korea and maybe even China for now.

The ten most powerful militaries in the world are:

1. USA
2. Russia
3. China
4. India
5. France
6. Great Britain
7. Japan
8. Turkey
9. Germany
10. Egypt
