You can probably add Pakistan, Kazakhstan and Syria to the Iranian allegiance to tip the scales even further to the Iranian side.


you could probably add australia and canada to the uk allegiance. and please dont forget the numbers of air-forces. Air superiority massively outweighs land superiority. death from above my friend.

but still this argument sucks

narrowband and broadband HPM is the answer to air superiority.

No we all know that the US could probably defeat any country on Earth on a 1-1, all in, war fest…but that isn’t how war occurs…


No, it couldn't. It couldn't even defeat Vietnam. How would it fare against the likes of India or China, who have the two largest armies on the planet?

If our army trained the American army then they could

It might be worth noting that the UK has some of the sneakiest nuclear submarines on the planet and they will already be strategically placed in the event of all out war to out manouvre their opponants.


The Royal Navy is currently constructing six fearsome hunter-killer subs. The huge Astute-class subs - HMS Astute, HMS Ambush, HMS Agamemnon, HMS Ajax, HMS Anson and HMS Audacious - will be the largest and most powerful hunter-killer subs ever operated by the RN - and will be the world's most advanced subs.

Two - HMS Astute and HMS Ambush - have already been completed.

These huge ‘super-subs’ will be able to make oxygen and fresh water from ­seawater, to keep the 98 crew — it has not yet been decided if this will include women — alive in time of crisis.

And, despite being 50 per cent ­bigger than the ­Swiftsure and ­Trafalgar subs they will replace, the Ambush class is quieter. Their propellers will be able to make less noise than a baby dolphin — making them virtually undetectable to enemy vessels allowing them to sneak up on an enemy ship and blast her out of the water.

More complex than the U.S. Space Shuttles and able to ­circumnavigate the globe ­without surfacing, the subs will be 291ft long — the same length as a football pitch — as wide as four double-decker buses and 12 storeys high. A typical patrol lasts ten weeks, but they could ­theoretically stay underwater for their entire 25-year lifespan.

The subs will carry 38 ­missiles — a mixture of Tomahawk cruise ­missiles, which have a range of 1,240 miles (they could hit places throughout Western Europe and North Africa whilst situated in the English Channel), and Spearfish heavyweight torpedoes to target other ships and submarines.

Their nuclear-powered engines will propel them through the water at more than 20 knots, allowing them to travel 500 miles a day.

Each one will be equipped with the world's most powerful sonar, meaning each one, whilst sitting in Portsmouth Harbour, would be able to detect ships entering and leaving New York Harbour three thousand nautical miles away (the MoD refuse to reveal how the sonars actually work). Each ship will also be able to eavesdrop on people's mobile phone conversations.

The persicope for each Astute class sub will carry thermal imaging and low-light cameras and will have 360-degree views. The persicopes will need to break the surface of the water for just six seconds and the images will be relayed to a hi-definition screen in the ops room.

They would probably stand a better chance anyway.
