Meanwhile, the Global Firepower Index revealed that over 60 factors were put into consideration to arrive at the final summation and gradings on the list.
The report says:
“…over 60 individual factors to determine a given nation’s PowerIndex (‘PwrIndx’) score with categories ranging from quantity of military units and financial standing to logistical capabilities and geography.”
