We have seen recently how Kenya has purchased some serious artillery for the security and military wing of the country. The Kenyan budget allocated a whopping $2.64 billion to the military for the financial year of 2017. 

With an overall budget of 2.29 trillion, the percentage the military was given was 1.15 percent. With The Kenyan GDP at 5%, we look how practical this was compared to other countries that boast the best military wing.

Total budget: 2.29 Trillion shillings

    Italy is not exactly known for its military wing, more for its pasta and iconic hand gesture (beat racist there). But it does hold one of the most powerful military wings on the planet.

    With the Kenyan government moving more and more to the Asian nations for help, it is no surprise at how powerful these countries are. Japan, for instance, has leapfrogged nearly every nation regarding development and their military has not been left behind.

    With Brexit a big possibility now, it is yet to be seen how the island nation will divide its military. Kenya will be watching the situation closely as they are one of the country’s biggest friends.
    However, as it stands the UK has an active military base.

    I wouldn’t have guessed at how dominant India military force is, as many developing countries do not focus too much on their military wing.

    China has of late come to support the Kenyan Military quite often regarding selling the country military machinery and gear. It is no surprise then that they rank so high in the most powerful military nations.

    Russia is just a scary country with the world polarized on where they stand on matters Russia. Although they have not spent as much on the military as China, they have allocated a sizable amount of their budget to the military.

    Military budget: $47 Billion
    Percent: 3.9 %

    Most of the countries do not need to be shown the United States military power. All they have to do is see the number of US military camps in their country, sad but true. 

    The US military budget is so large that if all the other nations in this top ten combine their budget, they will not march the US.

    Military budget: $664 Billion
    Percentage: 2.4%
