  1. At least half of the German eq doesn't work and this is confirmed by the Germans themselves. So what are we talking about?

  2. Where is Turkey???? Turkey should be number 2 in this list! Because like Russia, Turkey has a piece of land in Europe!!!!

  3. This dude is basically reading off of wikipedia.

    Numbers don't tell the whole story, the quality and quantity of equipment matters.

  4. Turkey is in Europe not Russia .. France-Britain-Turkey-Germany -Italy .https://www.globalfirepower.com/countries-listing.asp

  5. For those who say Russia isn't in Europe:

    Russia IS a EUROPEAN country! Its origins are in Europe and if you have any REAL knowledge of world history, you would know this because HISTORIANS themselves refer to the Russian empire as a EUROPEAN empire. The people are SLAVIC, same people who live in Poland, former Yugoslav republics (Slovenia, Serbia, Croatia, etc.), Belarus and Ukraine. They are also Orthodox Christians, the same faith shared in Eastern EUROPE! Their language is related to their Slavic brothers in Central and Eastern EUROPE. Their tsars had blood relations with the monarchies of Europe (e.g. Nicholas II of Russia was the first cousin of Emperor Wilhelm of Germany and King Edward of England).

    Please EDUCATE yourselves and don't spew STUPIDITY on the Internet!

  6. DID you just get this information from infographics, the Russian navy cant operate there only aircraft carrier and France is struggling to do the same even considering scrapping it , i mean really

  7. Russia is most def Europe, it's like the biggest brother hanging over all of eastern europe which is like an extension of the slavic countries/people. Culturally I also believe they are more "european" Most of the people also lives in the european part so.
