The weaponry is a combination of older American-made tanks (M48 and M60) and modern German (Leopard 1 and 2) and the Turks planned production of 1,000 tanks Otokar domestic production. The Turks held strong tank forces because of the danger from Syria and Iran.

9. UKRAINE - 3784
Like all the countries of the former Soviet Union and Ukraine still has remnants of powerful tank forces. However, in the case of Ukraine, the mighty can be called only by the large number of tanks, not the quality as the backbone of an ancient form of T-64 tanks. Numerically large tank forces they need because they their next-door neighbors - the Russians. 

8. PAKISTAN - 4000

7. EGYPT - 4145
Egyptians still have a large number of Russian-made older tanks and home-based Russian models (Ramses II), which are a legacy of older orders. In the past 20 years, Egyptians have turned to the West and their backbone forces make a modernized version M60-2000 and mighty American M1 Abrams.  

6. SYRIA - 4750

Indians themselves making tanks and so after production Vijayant (withdrawn from use) produced Arjun. The backbone of forces still are the Russians older T-72 and T-modern 90s. 

3. CHINA - 9000
Depending on sources, the Chinese have a third or second most numerus tank forces.

The Chinese also developed the MBT 3000, but that modern tank should be manufactured only for export. 

2. USA - 9125
Americans in the past decade gradually started to reduce the number of MBT's given that there was no danger of attack from the East, although this could change in future. Their main star is the M1 Abrams, whose latest version M1A3 in the near future should get into weapons as one of the best tanks in the world.

1. RUSSIA - 22710
