The Global Fire Power ranking, or GFP, measures countries' military strength and assigns a power index number in order to compare them to other countries. Many factors are taken into consideration, and smaller countries can compete with larger ones due to points given for refinement and technological advancement.

Just seven African countries are ranked by the GFP. An inadequate amount of information is available to compare other countries that are not included. Based on available information, the following countries represent the most powerful militaries on the African continent in 2013, according to GlobalFirepower.com.

Numbers reflect each country's power index, derived from a unique algorithm developed by GFP. A perfect score is a 0.0000. The lower the number, the stronger the military, and bonuses and penalties are added to country scores as needed.

7. Libya – Power Index: 1.8428

The strength of Libya's military comes mainly from its large cache of equipment, despite a relatively small number of active troops. Further hampering Libya's abilities is the continuing violence and unrest stemming from the revolution begun in 2011 which has yet to see a stable government emerge from it. Regardless, the country still has available 2,500 armored fighting vehicles, 500 tanks, 600 towed artillery pieces, 6,500 logistical vehicles, and much more.


6. Kenya – Power Index: 1.6237

Kenya has established itself as a vital participant in international peacekeeping missions, and is able to do so due to a high merchant marine strength and an enormous labor force – resulting in high available manpower. Though it doesn't possess as much of its own equipment, its role as a member of international teams allows the Kenyan military to share resources with other countries, strengthening its own capabilities at the same time.

5. Algeria – Power Index: 1.4107

As Algeria has a large maritime border, it has developed all of its military capabilities to an impressively modern degree, including its land, sea, and air forces. Algeria's active frontline personnel numbers more than 127,000 troops and it has nearly 2,000 armored fighting vehicles at its disposal. Algeria also has the added benefit of its own oil reserves, allowing it to use its own fuel to power tanks, aircraft carriers, naval vessels, and more.

4. Nigeria – Power Index: 1.3441

Due to its size, it's no surprise that several hundred thousand troops comprise the Nigerian Armed Forces, through its army, navy, and air force. Like Algeria, an abundant domestic oil supply eases the financial burden to be involved in military conflict, and it has more than 1,400 armored vehicles, 360 tanks, and 6,000 logistical vehicles at its disposal, as well as nearly 300 aircraft and 25 high-powered naval vessels.

3. South Africa – Power Index: 1.2582

As it hasn't been embroiled in an international military conflict for some time, South Africa uses its highly advanced military for more peacekeeping and international cooperation purposes. Its aircraft and naval vessels are notoriously well-equipped with the latest technology, and though the country has less than 100,000 active frontline personnel, it has the capabilities and manpower for much more. Add to that a vast array of land system technology, and the South African military is indeed a force to be reckoned with.

2. Ethiopia – Power Index: 1.1725

As a landlocked country, Ethiopia has focused its resources on developing its army and air force to an impressive degree (the GFP doesn't penalize landlocked countries for not having a naval force). Several hundred thousand personnel make up its current force, and they have significant numbers of land and air systems at their disposal. Furthermore, an enormous population that is fit for service allows Ethiopia to maintain the capacity to turn out an even larger fighting force, and gives the country one of the greatest militaries on the continent.

1. Egypt – Power Index: 0.7569

Egypt is put over the top with regard to military strength due to the sheer size of its armed forces. Nearly 500,000 personnel serve on its active frontline force, far surpassing all of its African neighbors, as well as its nearly 10,000 armored fighting vehicles, 60,000 logistical vehicles, 900 aircraft, and large oil reserve from which to draw. Again, the military has been somewhat undermined in the wake of the Egyptian Revolution, but some argue that its increased role in government has made it stronger than ever. Whether or not this is a cause for celebration or concern will remain hotly debated for some time to come.

Mkuu Edzeame

For me, that confession(in blue) is enough to defy the whole report.

United Nations peacekeepers in the Democratic Republic of Congo have clashed with the rebel movement M23, as fighting between the Congolese army and rebels in the country's east entered its third straight day.

U.N. and Congolese officers said Friday peacekeepers fired at the rebels outside the flashpoint city of Goma after rebel artillery shells killed two civilians. It was the U.N. brigade's first clash with M23.

The army and M23 rebels each blame the other for starting the unrest in Goma, a city of about one million people on the Rwandan border.

Army spokesman Colonel Olivier Hamuli said Thursday the army has the upper hand in the fight.

In a VOA interview, M23 deputy spokesman Lawrence Kingston said the rebel group wants to resume peace talks that began in Uganda, but the government has not cooperated.


"We are still waiting and they are fighting us every single day. So, what [can] one do? We are still waiting. We can not fight them. We ask for cease-fire, but they are bombing people here. They are killing people around here."

The fighting marks the first major hostilities since the army bombed M23 headquarters in July and drove the rebels back several kilometers from Goma.

The M23 briefly took control of Goma last year and still controls parts of North Kivu province. The group has been fighting for political power and control of the region's rich mines.

The M23 is made up of former rebels who were integrated into the Congolese army in a 2009 peace agreement. The rebels later deserted the army, complaining of discrimination and poor treatment.

Kwa kukusaidia tu naomba nikwambie.
1. Batalioni ya JWTZ ndio iliyokuwa inategemewa zaidi na Wakongo ili iwakomboe. Pale kuna majeshi ya UN kutoka nchi mbalimbali ya hayakufanya lolote.
2. JWTZ ndio lilokuwa mstari wa mbele kupambana na M23 mpaka ikapelekea askari wengine kuuwawa na wengine kuwa majeruhi.
3. Nenda Tweeter na Facebook tembelea Page ya M23 kwanini walikuwa wanapinga ujio wa JWTZ pale Kongo mpaka wakaandika barua na kupelekwa Bungeni kwa madai kuwa JWTZ watakufa na hawaiwezi ile vita. Leo hii wewe mwenyewe unashuhudia matokeo yake yapoje.
4. Majuzi Rais Kabila ametangaza vikundi vyote vya Uasi pale DRC viweke Silaha chini, jeuri hii ameipata baada ya kuwepo kwa majeshi ya Tanzania na S.Afrika.
5. Embu fuatilia Historia kwa makini harafu niambie ni wapi JWTZ Afrika walikanyaga mahali na wakarudi vichwa chini.

Ndio maana nikakwambia nenda hata kwenye Facebook na twita ukasome waliyokuwa wanaandika hao M23. Kama una mtu yoyote ndani ya GOMA, muulize yote ninayokwambia harafu uje kuniambia ni kipi ambacho nimekudanganya.

I expect JWTZ to be a professional army, lakini ikija kwa vikundi ndogo kama m23 ambao wana silaha duni inakuaje JWTZ hampendi mapambano

You have not felt wale vijana wa Sanga sanga(red berets), compare your notes with M23.
By the way, advise Edzeame aongee tu kiKikuyu, probably you will understand him better.
In english there is nothing like "most strongest", arudie tu grammar school.
