The American media has compiled a list of armies that would be considered the strongest by 2030. The five entered the army of the United States, Russia, China, France and India, writes «Russian planet» with reference to The National Interest.
As writes the American edition, the strongest army in the world needs to meet three basic criteria: they must have access to national resources, to have sufficient support from the political authorities to have the opportunity to test innovations in real environments.
The Russian armed forces meet these criteria. But there are drawbacks. The authors of the study indicates that the Russian military-industrial complex still not fully recovered after the collapse of the USSR, which is especially reflected and will affect the quality of ground forces.
The status of the most powerful land forces will remain still for the US army. The key to this will be a developed system of innovation in the American military-industrial complex, furthermore, to form the American armed forces allows you to stay right now and will allow to continue diligent participation in military conflicts around the world.
Not so simple with India. Indian army continuously carried out contrastantes operations in the country, but the technological gap here is striking. About innovation to talk practically not necessary, as the power of its own defence needs yet to be covered through imports from Russia and the United States.
The French army, the newspaper notes, is steadily moving towards becoming the first among others in the Old world. Paris will inevitably take control over the military machine of Europe and will become the guarantor of its security, believes the edition. Very serious attitude of the Elysee Palace to the quality of the armed forces, as well as a forced necessity of improving the system of state security authorities leave no other choice.
