The top 5 strongest and most powerful militaries in the real Africa. North African States are excluded because they shamelessly deny being African despite the fact that they're actually situated in the continent of Africa. These traitors even went as far as working in cahoots with the enemies of Africa and killed former President of Libya Colonel Muammar Gaddafi. The late Gaddafi was one of Mama Africa's Greatest Leaders and was the big mind behind a "United States of Africa". The list of the strongest armies in Africa is as follows:-
SOUTH AFRICAN NATIONAL DEFENCE FORCE
South Africa's military The South African National Defence Force (SANDF) is the strongest, most powerful and also most modern in Africa. Most of its superior arms and equipment were made in South Africa itself unlike the other African countries which lack such industrial capability and largely rely on importing theirs. Its defence budget was US$4.6 billion in 2015 and there are around 88,565 active frontline personnel and 17,100 active in the reserve. The South African Navy is also the only one in Africa that owns of powerful warships such as Frigates and Submarines.
NIGERIAN ARMED FORCES
The Federal Republic of Nigeria has got the second strongest and most powerful military in Africa i.e. The Nigerian Armed Forces. Their defence budget was US$2.3 billion in the year 2015. They're equipped with a mix of European, American, Israeli and Chinese made arms and equipment but however Nigeria has now started manufacturing and incorporating superior hardware for its military such as the "Igirigi" Armored Personnel Carriers used by the Army and the Navy's battleship NNS Andoni (P100). Personnel active in the frontline are around 130,000 and 32,000 are active in the reserve.
ETHIOPIAN NATIONAL DEFENCE FORCEAfrica's third strongest and most powerful military is Ethiopia's Ethiopian National Defence Force (ENDF). Its defence budget was US$ 3.4 million in 2015. Its inventory is largely dominated by USSR era made equipment but Ethiopia also has a defence industry sector that's responsible for manufacturing and providing equipment for the military. ENDF has got an estimated 182,500 active frontline personnel and because Ethiopia is landlocked, it doesn't have a Naval Force.
ANGOLAN ARMED FORCESThe Angolan Armed Forces also known as Forcas Armadas Angolanas (FAA) in Portuguese spoken in Angola are Africa's fourth strongest and most powerful military. Angola's defence budget was US$ 4.15 billion in 2015. They operate a large amount of Russian and Soviet era made equipment. The FAA have got around 87, 000 active frontline personnel and in the reserve 30,000 are active.
KENYA DEFENCE FORCESThough Kenya has a relatively small military with 24,120 personnel active in the frontline and 5,000 active in the reserve, its Kenya Defence Forces (KDF) are the fifth strongest and most powerful in Africa. They're responsible for liberating Somalia from the Al Shabab Terrorist Militants who are affiliated with Al Qaeda. Kenya had a defence budget of US$ 595 million in 2015.
