UK vs Russia – how Britain's military stacks up against Putin

Another shocking figure shows Russia has 12,950 tanks – in comparison to the UK’s 227.

The UK has 5,000 armoured vehicles under its belt according to Global Firepower – but this is little when compared against Russia’s estimated 27,000.

However, the UK boasts two aircraft carriers, whereas Russia only has one.

With other ocean-based combat vehicles such as submarines and destroyers, the UK finds itself far outranked, with Russia owning 16 destroyers and 62 submarines to the UK’s six and ten.
