Global Firepower: NationStates Military Comparison

Postby New Hayesalia » Sat Mar 10, 2012 3:16 am

This list is based on the website Global Fire Power. From the site:

GFP provides a unique analytical display of data covering global military powers with statistics compiled through various sources. All manner of countries are considered in the ranking, a spectrum helping to produce a near-complete comparison of relative military strengths from across the globe. The user should note that nuclear capability is not taken into account for the final ranking for this listing is purely a "numbers game" meant to spark debate and including nuclear weapons would clearly defeat its purpose. Therefore GFP comparisons are for consideration in a conventional war based solely on each individual nation's capabilities on land, at sea and through the air while including logistical and financial aspects when waging total war. Sources are stated whenever possible though some statistics are estimated if official numbers are not available.


While the NationStates version is not covering oil and finances, you can find an excellent resources for an upcoming war or as a tool for comparing your nations. The details are hosted on a Google Documents spreadsheet with the link below.




To Enter:
Simply complete this form. Please note it is not my responsibility to check your numbers, but feel free to argue on this thread in a civilised manner.

Total Population: For the purpose of detailing the amount of total manpower to be made available to any one country in a time of war. This total includes both males and females who would be called upon to serve in a military capacity or in factories for production of war goods.
Available Military Manpower: For the purposes of taking into account all registered military elements that could potentially be made available for military service today including active and reserve elements. This list does not take into account any individual type of military, paramilitary or security training or combat experience of any kind; it simply reflects the total amount of manpower a nation may commit to an overall war effort if need be.
Active Military Manpower: For the purposes of detailing the total active military manpower available to any one country today. These forces would the first elements committed to combat - be it offensive or defensive in nature.
Active Reserve Manpower: Nearly all national armies hold a certain amount of combat ready reserve personnel. These elements could be called to war in a fraction of the time it would take to enlist or draft and train from the national populace.
Manpower Fit for Service: Large population numbers do not necessarily reflect the military manpower of a nation outright as it also takes into account children and the elderly. This listing provides a more succinct look into the true available military manpower figures available to any one nation today.
Reaching Military Age Annually: Despite large poulations and standing armies, a key figure involved in a prolonged conflict requires plenty of military-aged bodies to continue the fight.
Labor Forces: Labor forces - perhaps as much as any soldier - win or lose a war. Industry is a proven and vital part of any war effort as history has repeatedly shown. This listing does not take into account manufacture quality and this varies highly from workforce to workforce and is hard to gauge - it simply puts into perspective a number that could become available in a time of war.
Total Aircraft: This listing showcases all air-based aircraft per country including both fixed-wing and rotary-wing systems as well as Unmanned Aerial Vehicles. Transports and trainers are also included as part of the totals. The total amount is the amount of this assets that could feasibly be operated in a large scale conventional war, it reflects the total amount of assets a nation may commit to an overall war effort if need be- so if it works and it would be brought into service, count it.
Helicopters: Showcasing the relative rotary-wing strengths of participating countries. Included in the totals are transport, scout and trainer types as well as mission-specific navy, army, air force and special forces helicopter platforms. The total amount is the amount of this assets that could feasibly be operated in a large scale conventional war, it reflects the total amount of assets a nation may commit to an overall war effort if need be- so if it works and it would be brought into service, count it.
Total Land Weapons: Covering all land-based weapon types including tanks, armored vehicles, anti-tank platforms, mobile rocket throwers, self-propelled guns, crew-served mortar weapons and towed artillery pieces, as well as other vehicles not otherwise noted. The total amount is the amount of each asset that could feasibly be operated in a large scale conventional war, it reflects the total amount of assets a nation may commit to an overall war effort if need be- so if it works and it would be brought into service, count it.
Tanks: Includes Main Battle Tanks, light tanks and dedicated tank destroyers - wheeled or tracked in nature.
APCs / IFVs: Both Armored Personnel Carriers and Infantry Fighting Vehicles - either tracked or wheeled in nature - are included in the counts.
Towed Artillery: Includes all calibers of field artillery systems that are towed by design.
Self-Propelled Guns (SPGs): Totals include all caliber of self-propelled gun platforms, be they tracked or wheeled in their design.
Rocket Artillery (MLRS): Totals include all caliber of self-propelled MLRS systems per army. Note that not every nation makes use of such weapons due to high cost or fighting doctrine.
Mortar Systems: Totals cover all calibers of crew-served mortar weapons systems currently in service with a given army.
Anti-Tank Weaponry: Includes all weapon types - either self-guided or direct line-of-sight - that are specifically designed to defeat enemy armor.
Anti-Aircraft Weaponry: Includes self-propelled platforms as well as portable crew-served systems.
Logistical Vehicles: Includes all vehicles as related to the logistical power of each army. Logistical vehicles are an oft-overlooked portion of the modern land army but form the backbone of any action by moving personnel, equipment and supplies wherever they are most needed.
Total Navy Ships: Includes navy ship vessels of all forms including surface and submarines as well as smaller patrol boats and logistical types.
Aircraft Carriers: Listing includes both nuclear- and conventionally-powered aircraft carrier types currently in service.
Submarines: Includes both nuclear- and conventionally-powered submarines currently in service as well as coastal- and ocean-going.
Destroyers: Destroyers form a fast response solution for any waterborne force - cheaper to operate than costly aircraft carriers and considerably more powerful than patrol type vessels.
Frigates: Frigates represent multi-role vessels of varying classes, sizes and firepower.
Mine Warfare Craft: Includes all mine warfare-related vessel types such as minelayers and minesweepers.
Patrol Craft: Includes all manner of patrol boat types including coastal, torpedo and interception platforms.
Amphibious Assault Vessels: Includes all naval vessel types as related to (and required for) amphibious assault operations.
Total Airports: For the purpose of measuring internal logistical support. An airport is considered to be a functional landing and take-off space, with room for basic or advanced maintenance and refuelling operations.
Merchant Marine Strength: Merchant Marine forces can be called to operate alongside navy units in wartime and represent a logistical-minded force at sea. Some landlocked nations still make use of a merchant marine force though they may lack any form of naval military branch. This includes ships registered in a naval auxillary or ships which are owned and flagged in your nation.
Major Ports & Terminals: Ports, harbors and terminals can serve a nation in wartime in a myriad of ways - delivering supplies, troops and equipment to fronts as needed. Only "major" ports, harbors and terminals are taken into account in this listing.

This is quite an interesting concept, New Hayesalia. The opening thread is coherent and up to-the-point, explained and packaged in a manner of concise.

I would like to inquire however, and if you would not mind me doing so; how will this be fairly regulated...? Simply put, nations may rped their own setting, as they wish for, and thus a single, coherent unified set of regulated and/or detailed standard of what constitute an acceptable Rped claim by some roleplayers, which may not be the case with others.

A very good example would be this; Nation A put forward that their available military manpower is 100% of their national population. Let us say for simplicity's sake that the aforesaid nation/roleplayer's claim will then be approved as legitimate by you (as the OP, which is perfectly understandable, and is fully within your right, as after all, you are the OP of this thread) and listed inside the Global Firepower: NationStates Military Comparison data.

Will this mean the fact that other roleplayers will then have to accept that NS' power claim...? If that's the case, wouldn't it be against the standing principle of a freeform roleplaying site by itself, whereby we are free to roleplay our nation as creatively as we may, as per our positive imagination, and unleash the aforesaid imagination to co-operatively write a good story with other fellow NationStates roleplayers?

Again, this is simply a curious question from me, and is not meant to be a criticism whatsoever towards your initiative, New Hayesalia. A little bit of explanation as to the reasoning behind this initiative, and a brief explanation of how it can benefit the roleplaying community is all that is needed.

It is up to us, the players who are seen and looked up to by those who come after us, to honestly build a better Rping environment for those that will come after us. To create a game where they can join us as equals. I feel that the NS Rping community is not that place any longer - where those few, with the power and privilege, who ought to look after the next generation instead exploit the new players for their own OOC and IC advantage, as well as gains. It is sad, but it is, just like real life, the way our world works. As I am here not to see and observe real life simply becoming reality in a fantasy world where we should be able to enjoy fair play, I have thus decided that it is time for me to rest this account, once and for all.

The reasoning was pretty basic- just a comparison tool like that used by the real Global Firepower. I see the benefit as being a resource where one can simply look and compare their numbers against theirs. Of course, there's no need for anyone to accept any numbers and like I've also said, I'm not going to moderate it. By moderate I mean that what they say in the application. Apart from that, this is a free argument zone. (Example, Nation A claims 100% available military perosnnel from population. I'll put it on the list, however I might argue that it's a bunch of crap.)

If a nation is actively planning a war, it will be their responsibility to ensure that the numbers that their 'enemy' has reasonable numbers. Sound reasonable?

Also, feel free to make an application :P

Thanks for the explanation, New Hayesalia. :)

I appreciate that, and I like the sound of this programme.

Yes, I will absolutely put forward an application of my military number here, once I've figured out what I should put; I am such a lazzzzzzy rper.

I got my numbers based off the German, Swedish, Chinese and Australian military with a bit of population accounting-for. Try something like that perhaps?

I perfectly know how to do my own research.

Thanks for the input, however. =)

Well-thought-out, at least, though expecting exact numbers for some of these things is pretty unreasonable, especially for larger nations. Then there's no accounting for modernity of technology, which is actually a fairly valuable data point. Then there's blanket categories for things that shouldn't honestly be blanket categories; logistics vehicles, for example. More detailed information is valuable there for any RPer who thinks of warfare as more than just "pew pew, post losses." You yourself call them oft-overlooked, but then you proceed to marginalize them. Same for merchant marine.

I also do doubt that people will be reasonable and will attempt instead to constantly one-up each other, as they always do in FNI threads wherein one-upsmanship can actually occur.

You'll want to limit this to MT, by the way. The results would be meaningless if you included PT, PMT, and FT data.

This is a great idea. I'll put my information up as soon as I can get the math done. I've always felt there should be more transparency, both IC and OOC about military strength on Nationstates.

Wow, this is very interesting. Looking forward to seeing some of the stuff people post. However, I would recommend you perhaps maintain two lists, one for nations who have capped their populations, and one for those who haven't. It makes it a lot easier for players like me who is not interested in seeing multi-billion man armies ;)

This form is not for counting technology: just numbers. While the technology is a valuable point, this is purely a numbers game. And I've also used the definitions from the site, and it had logistical vehicles as opposed to another load of categories.

On terms of technology, I think that if you were planning to go to war with someone you would reference their factbooks and see what it is their using: this list is purely numbers for people who therwise wouldn't release that information. If we included technology, I'd take a week to fill up two applications.

And yes, I have limited this to MT.

Well, if need be I can add notes to the numbers, like I did with my aircraft carriers. Example being (Nation A: Population 59,000,000 (capped))

I have two questions about the definitions used. First, in terms of numbers of tanks, IFVs, etc, should I include examples that are in storage rather than assigned to any units? I have a large number of MBTs and a few IFVs/APCs that are simply warehoused for dire emergencies and could not be activated for combat on short notice due to lack of crews and the wear on the vehicles. The maintenance guys turn the engines on for a couple of hours every month and might fire a round or two from the main gun but otherwise they're not really in service. Including them in my total would increase my total number of MBTs by about 25% despite it being unlikely that they could be ever used short a multi-year total war.

Second, by numbers of merchant marine ships, do you mean Radictistani-flagged vessels or Radictistani-owned vessels? The standard is flagged but I want to be sure.

In terms of tanks (and everything else) the total amount is the amount of tanks that could feasibly be operated in a large scale conventional war, it reflects the total amount of assets a nation may commit to an overall war effort if need be- so if it works and it would be brought into service, count it. By merchant marines, that applies to ships owned by your nations AND flagged in your nation.
