The report ranks the strength of 20 countries according to weaponry including tanks, aircrafts, helicopters, and submarines. USA's fleet of 13900 aircrafts, 920 attack helicopters, 20 aircraft carriers, 72 submarines far overweighs the military might of any of its close rivals and so does its military spendings worth $ 610 billion in 2014, which is far more than the combined military expenditures of the next nine countries in this index.
