The following entries were calculated taking into account factors like the number of active personnel (5% of total score), tanks (10%), attack helicopters (15%), aircraft (20%), aircraft carriers (25%), and submarines (25%). So, without further ado, let’s dig in!
Budget: $50 billion
Active personnel: 1,325,000
Total aircraft: 1,905
With its access to nuclear weapons, India’s expected to become the fourth-highest military spender on earth by 2020, making it one of the largest military powers on the planet.
