Meanwhile, during the air encounter, one of the air force pilot fell into the PAK’s territory due aircraft crash and captured by their army. However, abiding to a Geneva Conventions, Pakistan has released the Air commandant safely but in the meantime, India is putting the international pressure on PAK to stop supporting such terrorists in their home ground and take action against them as if any further attacks happen again India will act in the same way.

And, due to such situations and interference of other countries with United Nation Security Council, the tension is rising among both the nations, also raising curiosity among the people of both the countries and other nations that which country is more powerful India or Pakistan in terms of military weapons, armed forces and other combating equipment.

Economy Size and Military Budget of India and Pakistan

The economy size of India is much bigger than Pakistan. As, the GDP of India is around US$ 2088 billion which is world’s sixth largest economy when you see the list of countries by GDP. India accounts for 2.7% of world economy, whereas Pakistan’s GDP stands merely at US$ 273 billion accounts only 0.44% of the world economy. And meanwhile, India has foreign exchange reserve of US$ 400 billion and Pakistan has US$ 6.9 billion.

India spends four trillion rupees ($58 billion) or more than 2.5% of its GDP to its defence sector.  While on the other hand, in the same period Pakistan allocated only 1.26 trillion Pakistani rupees ($11 billion) about 4 percent of its GDP and PAK also begged to receive $100 million in foreign military assistance in 2018 to support its troops.

ARMY & LAND FORCES – Indian Army is Two Times Bigger than PAK Troops

Currently, India has more than 1.2 million army man ready for anytime combat with enemies. While, Pakistan’s army has only 560,000 troops much smaller than India. However, the total manpower available for military is around 320 million and PAK has only 48 million which is also much bigger than India thanks to larger population in the country.   

If you compare India vs Pakistan war equipment along with land forces and fighting vehicles like rockets etc., then India has 4426 tanks compare to 2735 owned by Pakistan. India possessed 5067 total artillery guns and PAK holds 3745, but India has 5681 Armoured Fighting Vehicles compare to 3066 controlled by Pakistan.

When you compare India with rocket artillery it has 292 and PAK has 134 which also kept 325 self-propelled artilleries more than India that holds only 290. If you compare India Pakistan military strength as whole including armed forces and military equipment, you will find India is much mightier than Pakistan and other nations across the world.    

AIR FORCES – India is Equipped with Rafale Jet like Multirole Fighter Aircraft

If you compare India and Pakistan air force, along with 127,200 personnel, India has almost twice helicopters around 725 comparing to Pakistan that can fly only 323. While on the other hand comparing aircraft, India has total 2216 while PAK has only 1143 aircrafts. Out of which India has 323 fighter aircraft and PAK holds only 186.

Similarly, comparing multirole aircraft, India possessed 329 and PAK has only 225. When comes to attacking aircraft PAK holds only 90 whereas, India stands with 220 and further will also include multirole fighter aircraft like Rafale to strengthen its air force attack that can be also used for in-depth strikes and nuclear deterrence missions.

NAVY FORCES – India is Guarded with Destroyers and Advanced Submarines   

The comparison between India and Pakistan navy is quite interesting, as India has total 214 naval aircraft and carrier that consists 15 Submarines, 24 Corvettes, 14 Frigates, 11 Destroyers and Aircraft Carriers along with 67,700 personnel, including marines and naval aviation staff capable enough to cover entire coastline of India.

On the contrary, Pakistan has only 5 Submarines, 9 Frigates and don’t have any Destroyers, Corvettes or aircraft carriers to battle with India. The reason behind the smaller naval forces is also due to the much smaller coastline in the Pakistan territory compare to India.

MISSILES & NUCLEAR WEAPONS – Both are Equipped with Nuclear Weapons of Mass Destruction

It is apparently known that both countries are equipped with ballistic missiles that can also carry nuclear weapons to hit the targets. As per the sources, if you compare India and Pakistan nuclear weapons India has 110–120 and Pakistan has 120–130 nuclear warheads.

When you compare India and Pakistan missile, as per the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) in Washington, India has nine types of operational missiles that consist Agni-V having the range of 5,500 km to 5,800 kms, enough to destroy the enemies.

Whereas, PAK has Chinese assistance built mobile short-and medium-range weapons that can reach any part of India. Pakistan has Shaheen-2 to target the range of up to 2,000 km with the capacity to carry One-ton nuclear or conventional loads. If compare India’s ballistic nuclear missile like Agni with Pakistan and China you will find world of difference.

Whatever weapons or nuclear warheads both neighboring countries are equipped but once the war is officially declared it is unknown how long it will go and how much weapon of mass destruction will be used during the entire war phase.

And the use of any kind of nuclear bombs is not favorable for the environment, as it can also destroy humanity and will also raise global warming on the earth with cascading effects up to many generations. So, we hope and pray nothing like situation arises and both nations should talk peacefully to come at the favorable decisions and save both country’s economy.
