Kicking off the list we have Brazil at number 1o. Brazil currently has more than 300,000 active military personal for a population of just under 200 million. They also have a budget of nearly 23 billion dollars to go along with that. Even though South America is a relatively peaceful place, that hasn’t stopped Brazil from becoming a military powerhouse.

About Ryan Scott

    Sorry, but you’re kidding right?
    Brazil, may have the largest active army, but by far is not the powerful..

    By source of a general in Brazilian army, he said, “Brazil don’t have enough ammo to 1 hour of war.”
    Brazil may the a very big budget, but it is used buying old weapons.

      It’s the number 10, not 1

  • ben Haggai

    Since the Left took over in Brazil, the Armed Forces have lost most of their budget. There are rumors that recruits are issued only two uniforms, and one pair of boots. There have also been rumors that their day’s work ends at 13:00 hours (1 pm,) and the men are told to go home to eat, as the Armed Force’s budget is not enough to feed them. There is great restlessness among the troops. “Interesting things” may be happening in the near future.

      This is what happened 10 years ago, now they are getting new Equipment and weapons

    • Tomás Rosa Bueno

      “Interesting things” may be fueling some boot-licking hotheads’ wet dreams, but it’s quite the contrary: since “the Left” “took over”, Brazilian Armed Forces have been treated like a favored son, with extra budget and support to pet projects such as the nuclear submarine for the Navy and the acquisition of a brand-new fighter-jet force – along with the technology to build them at home – for the Air Force. The Army gets deployed to new frontier posts in the Amazon jungle and has been fully re-equipped, besides having their research centers stuffed with money. And instead of being vilified as in other Latin-American countries for their past wrongdoing, the Brazilian military are protected by their own amnesty law which is still in force.

    I am Brazilian and I can say what I see here, the left in Brazil has systematically sabotaging the military, Brazil bought new planes that will begin to be delivered in 2016, and he will receive technology that the country will build much of the aircraft that he bought, ie paid more by technology than by the aircraft itself. The PT party that is government in the country since 2002 has part of its dome that was condemned by the Suprema Court, were arrested. Corruption in the country is the largest ever seen in history, the president signed a decree releasing money to ministries if the senators to pass a law to save her from being revoked by fiscal irresponsibility, this decree can be found signed on the Senate website. Brazil will enter into a civil war in a short time, or the people will be the slave of the Bolivarian Revolution that the government is doing in the country together with other countries in Latin America. Who does not believe can search on the BBC news website about the protests being made in Brazil because of the corruption.

    We had 25 years of military dictadure with torture, murder and corruption with the United States support .
    Those responsible, both civilian and military, are loose.

  • Thiago Chahin

    No ammo for 1 hour of war.
    Soldiers go back home for lunch because the army cant feed them
    The Fal rifles suck because they have too many mobile pieces
    The .40 pistol suck because they fire on their own
    The brazilian people suck because they cant take out their corrupt politicians out of power, so they would never be able to win a war.

  • Haevum

    Brazil has the best tropical florest comandos of the world, produces the best freighter aircraft of the world, is developing the nuclear sub that only 4 coutries in the world know, is developing its own fighter G2, has S1 one of the best anti aircraft system of the world, and never lost a war.
    So I think it should be on top 5.
