Top 10 Strongest Countries in Africa “SHOCKING”

What does it mean to live in a strong country? Does it mean complete safety and happiness or more wars for destroying this strong country? Africa is the 2nd largest continent in the world; however, it is ranked as the 1st one in terms of the number of problems from which it suffers such as those which are associated with bad economy, civil wars, corruption, bad health care, low quality of life, low salaries, bad education, oppression and other problems that can lead to the destruction of a country without the need for any other additional factors. However, there are some countries that are located in Africa and are described as strong countries because of owning powerful armies. Most of these strong countries have large reserves, strong economy, produce oil and can depend on themselves to some extent for protecting the country instead of resorting to other powerful countries that are known as the superpowers. The economic situation and military strength in the strong countries that are located in Africa may come to be worse than other powerful countries in the world, but they are better than many countries that are located in the same continent which is Africa or other surrounding continents. Let’s stop talking too much to start revealing the top 10 strongest countries in Africa and try to guess the country which holds the 1st position on the list. “You will not be able to do that because it is difficult to be expected”. The countries that are presented here are ranked on the basis of the power index score by GFP.

Egypt suffers from different problems especially at the present time after different revolutions; however, it can be considered as the best country if it is compared to other countries in the same continent or other continents around it. It is true that Egypt has many problems that need to be quickly solved, but fortunately the military sector is the only thing that does not suffer from any problems till now. Egypt is ranked as the strongest country in Africa thanks to having the most powerful army that can be found in this continent. It comes as number “1” with a power index score of 0.6122 which makes it also ranked as the 13th strongest country in the world.

The country does not have aircraft carriers or destroyers, but it has 1,100 aircraft, 36 attack helicopters and 4,767 tanks to be the largest number of tanks on this list.
