Army Day 2022 List of strongest armies in the world, where India stands

Ground Report | New Delhi: Strongest armies in the world; Army Day is celebrated on January 15 every year in India. January 15 marks the day that Field Marshal KM Cariappa (then a Lieutenant General) took over command of the Indian Army from British General Sir Francis Butcher, the last British Commander-in-Chief of India in 1949.

Army Day is observed to salute the brave soldiers who sacrificed their lives to protect the country and its citizens. Many events are organized across India to celebrate this special occasion along with the Army Day Parade at Cariappa Parade Ground.

The security of any country depends on the strength of its Army, Navy, and Air Force. Countries around the world are spending billions to augment external forces, prevent external attacks, and protect their respective nations.

In the list of the most powerful armies in the world, the first name is that of the United States that has the most modern and strongest military power. As far as India is concerned, we are in the fourth position, India has a total score of 0.1207 on this index, and it’s easy to see why.
