Bangalore: Every country, be it big or small, developed or under developed, requires an army to safeguard its territory. Arm Personnel meet the primary mission of ensuring national security and unity, defending the nation from external aggression and threats, and maintaining peace within a country. Supreme sacrifices have been made by brave men and women who devote themselves to the army. Different countries have varied forms of army to protect their nation with the best of services. So, here is a list of the countries which have the biggest and the best armies in the world, as listed in IndiaTv News.



People's Republic of China



The People’s Liberation Army has 2,285,000 active soldiers and 800,000 reserved soldiers. It is the largest army in the World. Since China has more than a billion people to protect, a military army like this one is quite necessary. Young men from the country are urged to join the Chinese Army upon reaching the age of 18 years and there are always a huge number of volunteers to enroll for the field.  As China engages in a lot of conflicts with its neighbors due to territorial issues, having such a strong force is essential.

1: China has always prepared for everything. China understood the security issues and have taken efforts to built/develop her army to face any kind of worst situation. India should learn from China.
