IRAN vs ISRAEL – Who Would Win – Military / Army Comparison


The
two countries we’re going to talk about today are seldom off the front pages of the
international news media. As we write this, a news report tells us Israel’s
Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, is saying Iran is waging a religious war in Syria and
that the country has its sights set on attacking Israel. “Iran calls for our destruction but it’s
also seeking nuclear weapons to carry out its genocidal designs,” said the prime minister. Meanwhile, the Israeli–Palestinian conflict
must be one of the most divisive issues out there, with much of the press and public painting
Israel as the villain. We won’t get into the politics of it all,
but with these countries being on everyone’s mind, we thought we’d match them up militarily. Without further ado, welcome to this episode
of the Infographics Show, Iran vs Israel. Let’s start with the money. Israel’s defense budget for 2018 was reported
as being $20 billion, which includes the yearly stipend the country gets from the USA, approximately
$3.8 billion. We might also add that the Israeli defense
minister is asking for another $1.4 billion to fund a military that is constantly in action. Here we will also add that Israel is to some
extent under the protection of the United States, but today we’ll be focusing on Israel’s
military alone, and not its power when its ever-faithful big brother steps in to assist. Iran’s military budget is considerably lower
than Israel’s, reported as $14.1 billion for 2017. Although, a Forbes article in 2018 said things
are about to change, and perhaps that’s why traditional military sites are not reporting
the 2018 budget. Forbes writes that The Islamic Revolutionary
Guard Corp, part of Iran’s armed forces designed to protect the Islamic Republic,
is due for a massive injection of cash. “The IRGC will receive $8 billion from Iran’s
fiscal budget,” writes Forbes, adding that Iran plans to spend large, even if that poses
a threat to the welfare of its citizens. Forbes says Iran’s Ministry of Intelligence
and Security will get one billion, and it seems the rest will go to the traditional
military. If this increased spending happens, then Iran
will have more to spend than Israel, but not by much. As for people on the ground. Israel has 615,000 military personnel. 170,000 are active personnel and 445,000 are
reserves. Add to that Israel’s Shayetet 13, a special
operations outfit said to be one of the best. As we said in our last show, something to
bear in mind is conscription in Israel. Most Israelis, when they reach 18-years old,
will become part of the military. Service time is 2 years 8 months for men and
2 years for women. We must remember this means Israel has a hell
of a lot of young people already trained to fight or that have actually been involved
in warfare. It’s not all action of course, with some
jobs just being hanging out as a safety precaution on one of Israel’s many kibbutzim. Iran has a bigger force, though, with a total
of 934,000 military personnel. 534,000 are active personnel and 400,000 are
reserves. Iran also has conscription, but it’s only
applicable to men. That means once Iranians reach the age of
18, they must do somewhere between 18 months and two years in the military. We might also point out that while women are
not conscripted, some do volunteer. Iran also has its special forces, from the
marines to its elite Quds Force, and the Saberin Takavar Battalion, a special unit of the Islamic
Revolutionary Guard Corps. Ok, so what about equipment on the ground? Israel has a fairly modern and well-maintained
bunch of machines. This includes 2,760 battle tanks, 10,575 armored
fighting vehicles, 650 self-propelled artillery, 300 towed artillery, and 148 rocker projectors. We might add that part of this is the Merkava
IV main battle tank, which National Interest said in 2017 just might be the best in the
world. We might add that National Interest says this
about many tanks. What about Iran’s tools of the trade? Well, the country owns 1,650 battle tanks,
2,215 armored fighting vehicles, 440 self-propelled artillery, 2,188 towed artillery, and 1,533
rocket projectors. As for tanks, National Interest talked about
an Iranian tank that was, you guessed it, “one of the best in the world.” This is the Karrar tank, which was made in
Iran and is supposed to be superior to the Russian-made T-90. Iran has a number of older tanks that were
made in the USA, the UK, and Russia. We might remember that Iran and the U.S. used
to be friends in the past, with the U.S. actually helping Iran to kick-off its nuclear program
in the 50s. This assistance became known as “Atoms of
Peace”, and yes, that was a term before it became the name of a band started by Radiohead
lead singer Thom Yorke. We point this out only to let you know how
fickle relationships can be, and so you never know, maybe one day Israel might not be a
demi-protectorate of the U.S. Compared to its land artillery, Israel’s
air force is quite small. It has 252 fighter aircraft and 252 attack
aircraft. Israel has also spent big on 9 F-35’s bought
from the USA and also has over 70 F-16 Fighting Falcons. On top of that, they have F-15 Eagles and
F-15 Strike Eagles. So, while small, there isn’t much there
that hasn’t at one point been said to be a top ten aircraft. Iran has an even smaller fleet, with 150 fighter
aircraft and 158 attack aircraft. Some of those were the ones given as a gift
from the USA, in a small fleet F-14 Tomcat Fighters. Add to that some rather old American-made
multirole fighters in the McDonnell Douglas F-4 Phantom II and Northrop F-5 Tiger II. Perhaps the best aircraft Iran has is the
Russian made Mikoyan MiG-29 Fulcrum as well as Russian Sukhoi Su24s and 25s. In the water, neither country is very strong,
with Israel having no aircraft carriers and not much of anything else. In total the country owns no frigates, no
destroyers, 3 corvettes, 6 submarines, 32 patrol craft, and 0 mine warfare vessels. Iran has more to brag about, having a total
of no destroyers, 5 frigates, 3 corvettes, 33 submarines, 230 patrol craft, and 10 mine
warfare vessels. In numbers, this is, at least, far stronger
than Israel. As for nuclear weapons, we will use a quote
we have used before regarding Israel, written in 2017 in National Interest. It says about all you need to know. “Israel does not confirm nor deny having
nuclear weapons. Experts generally assess the country as currently
having approximately eighty nuclear weapons.” What about Iran? Well, that’s the million-dollar question. CNN wrote this in 2018, “Iran does not yet
have a nuclear weapon but does have enough low-enriched uranium for a single nuclear
weapon.” Then we had a report on June 4th in the British
tabloid, The Sun, that stated Israel intelligence agency Mossad had discovered documents in
a warehouse in Tehran that suggested Iran was on its way to making nuclear weapons. Depending on what news source you read, Iran
has them already, will have them soon, or has some good-to-go, but in North Korea. The truth is out there, but we won’t say
we know what it is. So, who wins? Well, we have to give the edge to Iran. It’s just a bigger military in the end. We are not alone; other pundits it seems also
give Iran the edge, stating that the country falls just outside of the top ten most powerful
militaries in the world. So, what do you think? Does Iran actually have the edge, or could
Israel blow iran out of the proverbial water? Let us know your thoughts in the comments! Also, be sure to check out our other video

  1. What is the edge each country's army has in your opinion? Under what circumstances could the underdog win?

  2. breaks my heart seeing all these Iran vs Israel things on youtube. Little do some people know that a majority of Iranians have absolutely no issues with USA nor Israel. And guess who's gonna pay the price…

  3. Looool you really made an effort to make the video like this???who would win u think???i really think Iran can wipe out Israel in 20 minutes 😂😂

  4. If Iran attacks Israel on Israeli soil, Iran would loose. If Israel attacks Iran on Iranian soil, Israel would loose. The reason is that Israel spends 98% of it’s Gross National Product on Defense and Iran would have no chance of winning on Israeli soil because of Israel’s very high security and Defense Forces. The down side of Israel spending so much on defense makes them have a bad offense and Israel would have no chance of winning on Iranian soil.

  5. It took six days for Israel to beat every country around it so… I think they would win plus they are said to have nukes so if they have to use them they probability will

  6. If nuclear weapons are not used maybe. 80 nukes would wipe out half of Iran making Isreal military much larger. Besides, who ever controls the skies will control the battle. To bad we don't have a count on smart missiles and such. They also will play a huge role.

  7. president PUTIN** DE Gaul & george Orwell are disusing in room 101 what to do with washington / the 1967 5 day war version 2019 Jerusalem👽

  8. One big factor he didn't mention is Israel's Iron Dome system. Also, realistically a war this big would also include Saudi Arabia, Syria, palestinians, the US, Iraq, etc.

  9. The F4 Phantom is basically a useless plane. It has no guns, just missiles, is very old and wouldn't stand a chance to any Israeli or US fighter

  10. Ridiculous. Israel has been invaded by entire coallitions of Islamic nations and has never been defeated (see Six Day War and October War for example). Not only that, against all odds Israel always came out way on top, like capturing the entire Sinai peninsula. No way Israel would ever be defeated by a single Middle-Eastern nation.

  11. Remember Jermey Newton even i don't support Iran but now Israel Iran and Hizbollah not Egypt Lebnon Syria. In Technology Iran's is not strong but having very very strongest Ideology

  12. Israel would win you need consider that Israel has won fights that that the world sed it has no chance to win due to Israel's war leaders and engenirs

  13. I am from Israel and i don't want war but at this point it seems almost inevitable to not have a war with iran in the next ten years

  14. You’re forgetting so many things in war.
    Information, missles, defense systems and many more.
    With this you’ll have a much better picture of what it’ll look like.
    Saying bigger army does not mean more effective not have the same quality. Also you need to consider that most of the battle if not all of it will be from the sky because of how far each country is.

  15. Isreal us inferior quantatively but quality Isreal leaves iran on the bench but Iran has terrorist spread everywhere in the gulf

  16. WAR IS NOT WON BY NUMBER OF ARMINATION , SOLDIERS ETC BUT BY TACTICAL.

    PLS LET GO AND STUDY THE 6 DAYS IN MIDDLE EAST WERE ISRAEL CONQUER ALL THE MIDDLE EAST NATIONS.

  17. I know it's speculation since there's no specifics on Israel's nuclear weapons, but my guess is it's more powerful than this video implies. I'm an may have the edge with comventional weapons, but it's likely Israel has had nukes for years after collaborating with South Africa and stealing US intelligence. They probably have hydrogen bombs. By contrast Iran is just now developing simple atomic bombs. Even with just 80 hydrogen bombs Iram would be completely devastated on day 1 of a war. Tel Aviv might get hit with an atomic weapon, but Israel would probably come out of it in better shape and be able to win.

  18. Israel has special llobby's in America called AIPAC, they litterally dictate US foreign policy they're that powerful..if israel wants a war, they just send their puppet the USA and have our American boys die on their behalf…that's what all these middle east wars are really about anyways it's called "the greater Israel project"

  19. Israel will win, because Israel was able to win a war against 3 different armies when they surprised Israel and on a day that a lot of the Israeli soldiers didnt eat or drink that day so they were weaker then usual.
    Israel lost a lot of soldiers in thet war but they still won and all of the soldiers that died serving Israeli military ware heroes becuse they were protecting their country.

  20. Stop provoking a war.i'm Iranian and I love the jews.why not to love each other instead of killing each other??
    Please lets be loving humans.forget about the politicians,forget about the media,forget about this long term hatred…

  21. MUCH Of "The Public"?! Let's get SPECIFIC!!!! WHO…Exactlynis that?! The Globalist MSM? All the Leftist/Communist/Marxists in Academia?! All the Loudmouth Twitterati who are allowed to Punch Far Above Their Weight?! When YOU say that, you're just contributing to that Propaganda. Let's take a Global Survey that includes the History Background!

  22. You didn't take into account geographics, and so by blown out of proportion their edge in the waters. Ultimately, Israely pilots are considered among the best in the world, and you have to take a look at our history with swimmingly unwinable wars.
    Plus of course big uncle Sam

  23. None of the comparisons matter after from the air capabilities. Israel's so much stronger it would neutralize all other capabilities.

  24. Not saying it won't happen but I doubt Iran would support Palestinians bc it could spark rebellions and secession in their own country.

  25. I wish the whole will become one country one day that will happen only if there is no religion at all no islam no jew no Christian and no armanian just humans that love each other

  26. Israely is the vilan.There laws are more radical than the feminist or islamic.Filthy jews want to controll the hole world

  27. No way Iran stands a chance: Israeli tactics, communications etc. far superior, besides far more modern equipment

  28. isreal said that iran would carry out genocidal program but what about israel they are killing palestinians and invaded palestine for their own religious basis there are more than 70000 jews living in iran who refused to go to another country because they love iran and living peacefully

  29. It’s not the size nor quality of the military might that matters but the strategy an opponent makes that wins the battle. This video is ignorant.
    How many times in history did the smaller army’s win ? besides the fact that Israel’s past wars were with multiple Arab countries and won every time against the logic this very clip is promoting. either way Iran chants every day death to Israel and death to the US. It’s really the leaders that want war and want to wipe out Israel the Iranian people many I’m sure want peace just like most people in most countries. It’s always the corrupt leaders that have an agenda that want to make people’s lives miserable and make war.

  30. A significant thing that this video is overseeing is the fact that in past history the State of Israel has fought and won wars from 1947-48 to this day against a far better equipped and overwhelming superior amounts of troops like those of the 1967 and 1973 Yom Kippur War just to name these.

    Right now, the IAF has a far more sophisticated and up-to-date technology air jet fighters contrary to Iran dilapidated Air Force. Thereover more facts and statistics involved which will disagree with this video in all sorts of talking points such as how many of Iran's SF has successfully infiltrated into the State of Israel compared to both MOSSAD and Israel's SF?

  31. Iranians are not bad folks; the Imams are. The Israelis are, however, a Western Army, whereas Iran couldn't beat the Iraqis.

    Further, Israelis will be fighting for survival. If the Iranians lose, they will not be destroyed.

  32. You should do how many war Israel and Iran and USA been involved in in the last 60 year .

    It will answer a lot of questions ?
