    I would’t put the Turkish army in the top ten and I will definitely put Russia either first or second. The Turks have much more losses than victories in their wars, they are not a professional army, either they will have any real support from anyone against anyone. The Turks can not even deal with the Kurds how on earth can they deal with any professional army???? Russia has won by far more wars with serious opponents than anyone else, it has the most massive weaponry in the world included nuclear!!! and it is also impossible to get conquered. Be more realistic and less pro- somebody with your lists.:)
