For some centuries, Africa has been beset with varying forms of violence such as religious bigotry, political viciousness, oppression, hooliganism amongst others. It takes a militia with high physical and tactical strength to tackle these issues. In this article, I would be x-raying the top 10 African countries with the highest military strength.
It is imperative to note that the military strength of any country is not only determined by the physical size of her army or number of ammunition. Factors such as resources and defence budget, logistics, naval strength number of tanks and armoured fighting vehicle, number of active front-line and reserve personnel, aircrafts like fighters/ interceptors and helicopters and coastal defence crafts and many other factors are used.

Another factor affecting Libya’s military strength is the unending violence and unrest caused by the revolution which began in 2011. The revolution asked huge questions of the nation’s military. A stable government has yet to emerge from the ruins of the revolution.
Regardless of this, Libya boasts 2,500 armoured fighting vehicles, 500 tanks, 600 towed artillery pieces, 6,500 logistical vehicles, amongst others. The nation’s budget for defence stands at $880 million every year.
