This Country Has The World's Largest Military

The United States has a military that includes about 1.3 million people spread across the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps, and Coast Guard. It is not by any means the world’s largest. That distinction belongs to China. Its military has slightly more than two million members. Some estimates put the figure higher, and in one case by several hundred thousand.

The Defence Department produced a document entitled“Annual Report to Congress: Military and Security Developments Involving the People’s Republic of China”. It issues the report once a year. Among the observations of the report: "With a force that totals approximately two million personnel in the regular forces, the PLA has sought to modernize its capabilities and improve its proficiencies across all warfare domains so that as a joint force it can conduct the range of land, air, and maritime operations as well as space, counterspace, electronic warfare (EW), and cyber operations."
