During a pandemic like this, there are many consequences in all sectors of a country.
Not only in the economy, health, trust in the government but also in the map of world military power.
Where each country continues to strengthen not only in the health sector by increasing the budget for the sector, but also cannot forget about the defense sector.
So, which country has the strongest combat fleet in the world? Global Fire Power, a defense and security analyst institute in 2019 ranked the military forces of several countries in the world.
GFP's 2019 Military Strength Ranking list refers to more than 55 factors for assigning the Power Index score to 137 countries - plus this 2019 Moldova.
The ranking assesses the diversity of each country's defense equipment and pays special attention to its soldiers. This includes an assessment of geography, logistical capacity, available natural resources, and the status of local industries.
The New York Times said the US currently has strong alliances with Saudi Arabia, Israel, Egypt, and the United Arab Emirates. "They don't want to be hostile to Iran because the current situation is very difficult, so divided and sensitive," said Khalid Al Dakhil, a political sociologist in Saudi Arabia.
In terms of the Global Fire Power version ranking, the US is currently in the top position of the country with the strongest military power in the world. In the next position is Russia.
Indonesia is at number 16, one point higher than Israel.
