Macedonian army now among the weakest in the world

According to the military tracking and analysis agency Global Firepower, a 50-indicator ranking places the Macedonian army (ARM) among the lowest in terms of power and military capability.

Now a NATO member, Macedonia ranks 133 on the list – below Burkina Faso, Panama, Gabon and El Salvador and above Eritrea, Suriname, Sierra Leone and Somalia.

Recent acquisition of weapons and military vehicles by purchase and donations from the US hasn’t resulted in a better assessment.

While the capabilities of the army have been falling sharply over the years, a picture yesterday circulated online showing Macedonian army troops wearing uniforms without national insignia, which is against the law.
