Iran vs The United States – Who Would Win? – Military Comparison


The United States vs. Iran The annual defense budget of the United States
is $664 billion, which is 2.4% of its gross domestic product or
GDP. The annual defense budget of Iran is $17.1
billion, which is %6 of its GDP. The United States has a total population of
321 million people, with 120 million fit for service. It has 1.4 million people who are active frontline
personnel, and it has 1.1 million who are active reserve personnel. Iran has a total population of 82 million
people, with 39.5 million who are fit for service. It has 545,000 people who are active frontline
personnel, and it has 1.8 million who are active reserve personnel. The United States’ frontline manpower is nearly
3 times larger than that of Iran; but if both nations called on
their reserves the United States’ manpower would be reduced to 1.06 times that
of Iran. There is a drastic difference in the amount
of tanks between both nations. The United States has 8,800 tanks while Iran only
has 1,700 tanks. That difference becomes even more monumental when you consider
both nation’s AFV strength. The United States has more than 30 times the amount
of armored fighting vehicles as that of Iran (41,000 vs. 1,400). Other land units that both armies employ are Self-Propelled Guns (1,932 vs.
320), Towed Artillery (1,300 vs. 2,078), and Multiple Launch Rocket Systems (1,331
vs. 1,474). When comparing aircraft strength, the United
States vastly overpowers Iran with 13,444 aircrafts compared to Iran’s 479 aircrafts. United States’ most favored aircraft is it’s own F-16 Fighting Falcon. Ironically, Iran’s most favored aircraft is the United States developed Grumman F-14
Tomcat. Looking at naval power, both nations seem
to be similarly matched at first glance; the United States with 415 total ships and
Iran with 395 total ships. But as you break these numbers down, you see a massive
difference in the amount of firepower between the two nations, with 254 of Iran’s
ships being Patrol Craft. On the subject of nuclear warfare, the United
States has 5,100 warheads on stand-by. Iran currently has no nuclear weapons, but
is pursuing a uranium-enrichment program that could provide it with the capability
to produce them within the next several years. We must remember that almost every ground
vehicle, aircraft, and naval unit needs fuel to be employed. The United States currently consumes 18.7
million barrels of oil a day and produces 9 million barrels daily
with a 22.5 billion barrel oil reserve. Iran on the other hand, consumes 1.8 million
barrels of oil a day and produces 4.2 million barrels daily with a
staggering 133 billion barrel oil reserve. As we progress through the digital age, cyberwarfare
is becoming a critical part of a nation’s strength. The United States is known to be investing
heavily in cyber warfare with their Cyber Command program. Iran has created the Supreme Council on Cyberspace, investing more than $1 billion
in cyber infrastructure and technology, along with recruiting more than 100,000 personnel. This is a brief look at how these two nations
match-up against one another. Subtitles by the Amara.org community

  11. If you want to know what all the sanctions and America's complaints about foreign nations are really about look into which countries are buying gold,cutting out the us dollar. The United States has check mated itself into a place it can't escape, I think the best thing the us could do for the world is start giving a little bit instead of demanding everything if not the us eventually won't be a country with any power and alot of enemies. Look at the latest efforts of the NAM just had to say 120 countries back maduro only 54 against maduro all of these countries disagree with american hegemony. Its time to wake up we are going to lose everything cause we demand it all.

  18. I am Iranian. Iran does not want a war. If war breaks out, Iran will launch missiles on all southwest Asian oil rigs. And a barrel of oil is being sold at a very high price in the world, which destroys the entire economic cycle of Europe and the United States itself, resulting in a war between Europe and America.

  21. I say Iran 🇮🇷 because the war we only have ak and rpg but America tank and lot of gun but we win the war

  22. This is a bit over simplified. The US may have a vastly larger military. But it is a global power. It isn't as if it can suddenly abandon all its other commitments around the world and move all of its forces straight to Iran. Iran, on the other hand, keeps all of its forces at home, and can use all of them to defend. Would Iran win in a real war? No. But it wouldn't be a straightforward battle – probably a price for victory higher than the US public would want to pay to have a war half way around the world. The numbers alone don't tell you the story.

  23. The United States could destroy Iran's military in a few days…anyone here after that failed Iranian rocket launch that destroyed the launch pad,rocket and vehicles……United States had pictures of super detail …so much detail as never seen before or thought possible…i don't agree with the United States being the world police,but irans military is not even able to compare to the United States…don't believe me just watch👍

  27. What is the point of this video. We all know that the US will withdraw after the first major casualties of US soldiers and it will be the end of a political career for Trump. On the other hand, a big celebration for Iranians, to defeat such a superior enemy.

  28. Your dumb Iranians have much more aircraft's than Americans and iran also consumes more oil than Americans because they have full of it, and Iranians have the best nuclear weapons than Americans and it also has one of the strongest rockets, and did you know Iranians also have much more tanks than Americans, it is also alot more stronger too, Iran would be way hard to beat military wise.

  32. Iran would win. Trump don't read Quran or Sahih Muslim. Allah order all Muslim to go to NE. Iran to fight a war. Even if 1% made it there that 17 million Jihadists. Nobody order ISIS and ISIS grew to 30k. This time Allah himself order all Muslim to go even if they have to crawl. The best thing let Iran and Israel nukes each other and USA and take over both countries.

  33. Wgat a poor comparison. US has 8000+ tanks vs. 1700 Iranian tanks as if the narrator is suggesting US will transport those tanks to fight Iran. On the other hand, Iranian tanks are already in the battlfield. Let's see how many F-16s will get shot down by massive Iranian high tech air defence forces. These sort of comparions are to impress children bot military men.

  34. The US goes easy on Afghanistan, if it let loose on Iran, there would be nothing left of it. Iran should not make a mistake, it will be their last.

  38. Which of the crazy Americans was able to defeat army power? Trump just talks and he won't act. You can't force us

  39. In 2019 Iran already won. The US military has no sense of purpose. After 18 years of terror war, the US military also has no credibility or honor. All the corporate US hardware means nothing without pupose, morale or honor. Losing team.

  40. Everyone loses in a war. Is the UN blinded? If Iran and similar countries have to be reformed is it necessary to escalate to this level? The UN should organize a peace meeting and set requirements for lifting sanctions against Iran. What does a teacher do when a child is not reforming even by punishment? Talk and make the child understand that positive spirit is important for progress. Similar efforts should be undertaken by the UN and full emphasis should be to stop all violence occurring anywhere in the world. Unfortunately, the US, Iran, Russia, China and some countries are causing their ego to spoil the lives of people. Financial war is not to be started unless all options for peace have been exhausted without any discrimination. KINDLY WAKE UP UN BEFORE POLARIZATION DESTROYS THE WORLD. Because after the world is destroyed each of these violent people will be born again and again as handicapped animals till the cause of each sufferings are borne by them.

  43. It is clear, that USA is most powerful country in the world. But if USA attacks iran, iran will not be left alone. China Russia, North Korea and our neighbours will certainly be on our side in this war… .

    Starting war against iran means starting world war 3. USA is playing with fire.

  45. cold war has been going on between America and Iran since 1997. And every one, who studies conflict between America and Iran, knows Iran has been defending successfully and now Iran has become a core power in middleast. So it can be said that Iran is a winner of cold war.
