How many minutes will Turkey last against Cyprus, Greece, Russia and Israel? :lol:


The Global Militarization Index (GMI) depicts the relative weight and importance of the military apparatus of one state in relation to its society as a whole. For this, the GMI records a number of indicators to represent the degree of militarization of a country:[1]
comparison of military expenditure with its gross domestic product (GDP);
comparison of military expenditure with its health expenditure;
contrast between the total number of (para)military forces with the number of physicians, and the overall population;
ratio of the number of heavy weapons available and the overall population.

Is Cyprus 6th because they've included the presence of the 40,000 Turkish troops and their toys within the figures?

No dear Oracles. The RoC has its own paramil. force, which 'officialy' is around 1,000 men.

These people have received special training and in the event of war they will be deployed in key missions.

And the CNG and Greek Armed Forces don't share a thing. Greece has mainly American Hardware, and Cyprus French, Russian and Israeli Hardware!

Oracle, Ocean and Kurupet, bugger off from this important thread! :roll:

You are the untrained foreigner. :lol: In the event of war, GR! will have to take orders from me! 8)

Right, after a brief interlude from deluded insane anti semitic Greek fools, it is time to reserect this thread!

Where were we? Gowind Class Corvettes and the capable CNG!

These Ships will be capable of carrying Exocet SSM and thus can sink a Turkish Ship from 100 miles away.

They can launch OYK boarding parties, engage multiple targets and have an AA capability. Also UAV drones and a Helicopter Gunship.

They can also operate alongside Naval Units of the IDF, who seem to be our only serious ally that means business!

It is also likely that Cyprus will purchase additional Patrol Boats and Corvettes from our good Israeli friends!

I am well aware Cyprus has its own forces - but the criteria (above) by which the ranks were arrived at could include the whole military aggregate on Cyprus, since it's done per capita (population) on the island (does it specifically exclude military occupying Cyprus? It doesn't say otherwise.)

Anyway, such a rank is meaningless. It's total numbers that matter and for us it's the fact we are backed by 300 Million in the EU whereas Turkey is just 70 Million. Cyprus is forced to protect this corner of the EU now we are seen as such a big asset (i.e. the DEBT we have been forced to accept which ties us in permanently. Onward for the returns to our own investment for a United States of Europe.)

I forget how many of these mobile launchers we've got. I haven't included them in previous counts.
