For each national power included for the annual ranking, the Global Firepower tracks frontline armored combat systems. All branches of the military consider track-over-wheel designs (Army, Marines).
The German 'Leopard 2' (shown) and Russian T-90 Main Battle Tanks (MBTs) are examples, as are light-class systems like Thailand's 'Stingray' Light Tank. Products that are currently under development or on order for the following year are not considered.
The information on this list is valid until 2022. When official data is unavailable, estimates are made.
