I hope this is the right place for this thread. If not mods please move! I wanted to chat with other military lovers and see who they believe are their favorites armies in the world. I'm split between two as of right now. Both the United States Armed Forces and the People's Liberation Army. Both groups are a testimony in time it's self.

my favorite army is the one that doesn't exist.
Why would anyone have a favorite war machine?

The sooner the world rids itself of the military the better, but since we are as a species still too backwards and tribal for that to happen i better stick to the topic. I would say the PLA as well, considering they will be the most powerful military to have ever existed on planet earth within my life time i think it's a safe to put my money on them.

Rebel not sure if I am understanding the question correctly.....I am only going off of what I know currently of the following and I admit Im a little biased, only because I am from this country. The USMC baby! I like the pride, mystique, full dress uniform, history, and concepts. Just my personal opinion

Ohh baby! The USMC is amazing! Russia also has a great military. Keep it faithful that's what I always say.

Expect an influx of Libertarians when asking a question like this...


To me, are perfect unit should be versatile, flexible and strategic. So first on my list would be The United States Marine Corp.

Second would have to be the British Special Air Service or 'SAS'. There motto "Who Dares Wins" speaks for itself.

Here's a list you should enjoy. This list the top 10 special forces in the world. Even though the PLA and the Vietnam military is not on there I still really like them. If the U.S. and PRC went to war we would need to learn more about technology. Because that one special weapon China has up it's sleeve. It is more simple to hack a computer for information then fight without knowledge of your enemy.

Then why have them?


Canadian troops are a great bunch of guys.

And on topic? My choice is any military that's not actively shooting at me.

Contrary to current opinion on ATS, the military does more than just bust up stuff and kill people. That's more like a perk.

Check out pictures of Haiti. 99% of that aid wouldn't have made it there without USAF Airlift and USN sealift. And other countries militaries that had support on the ground rescuing people.

What does this mean "a testimony in time it's self"...

Any Army that can squash all of the armies on earth in one fail swoop is a
the side I want to be on. Till then The Republican Guard was a neat one.

I would definitely pick the french foreign legion.
These men truly do not fear death, most are running away from their past and thus have nothing to lose, they are also trained mercilessly.

Well as a 5 year veteran of the United States Army my desicion is kind of bias.

Well the American Navy for sure
My heart was stolen by a sailor and I love him for it. I think that might make me more bias however.


Also many things I have always been into conspiracy wise involve the Navy so I definitely prefer the Navy.

Favorite..like Whats your favorite loli-pop? You mean who are the worlds greatest modern warriors. The US and Israel have the greatest fighting forces on the face of the earth. Bar none. And if we live long enough we'll get to see it proven.

Israel?? I doubt they would rank in the top 10 as a stand alone force.

And if you took away all their US donated weapons probably top 20 would be a stretch...

Lets remember their population is only around 6 million so not a bad effort..

BTW, as an unbiased Aussie, I'd have our SAS guys up there..

I disagree! Israel structured one of the toughest martial arts in the world Krav Maga as well as design the UZI and Desert Eagle firearms.
