Military Ranking in East Africa As At 2021

Do you understand the importance of ranking? Grading motivates the best to become the best, the good to improve, and so on. It has never stopped; it may be found in companies, homes, and even the military. To rank entities, you must take into account a number of variables or conditions, as well as their scores. Global firepower, on the other hand, examines and ranks militaries all around the world.


Tanzania is ranked 23rd in Africa on the worldwide firepower ranking, making it the third best in EA. After considering a variety of factors, this conclusion was reached. The quantity and types of aircraft in Tanzania's People's Defense Force, total reserve and active personnel, their naval fleet, and other factors were among them.

You discover that the country has 110000 military men, 30,000 of whom are active and 80,000 of whom are on reserve. It has 10 patrol ships and 35 aircraft in its navy. There are 14 Chinese F-6 and F-7 fighters, 7 helicopters, six transport planes, and eight training planes among the aircraft.

It has 42 tanks and 100 armored vehicles in its army.


Uganda is the 14th most populous country in Africa and the second most populous country in the East. It's because there are 57,000 personnel, including 45,000 active, 10,000 reserve, and 2,000 paramilitary. Its air force is made up of 51 planes.

There are 11 rather recent Russian fighter/interceptors among them, 26 various helicopters (5 attack helicopters), two transport planes, and 12 training planes. Uganda is a landlocked country with no naval forces. It has 242 tanks in its army (10 are deadly Russian T-90s).

The Uganda People's Defense Force is equipped with 1040 armored vehicles, 25 rockets, six self-propelled artillery systems, and 35 towed artillery systems. You can see why it slid into second place so easily.


This isn't surprising, I know. Kenya was widely expected to lead East African firepower. So, how did it land this coveted spot? The country has 29,000 military troops, 24,000 of whom are active and 5000 of whom are paramilitary.

The Kenyan Air Force possesses 150 planes, including 17 American fighters/interceptors, 89 helicopters (2 American attach helicopters), 21 transport planes, two special missions planes, and 23 training planes. Seven patrol vessels, three missile boats, and one landing ship make up the country's naval force.

It possesses 75 tanks, 550 armored vehicles from the United States and Turkey, 30 self-propelled artilleries, and 25 towed artilleries in its army.
