Russia has over 845,000 troops and a military budget of about $1billion. It also has over 2 million reserve forces that could bemade available within a short period of time. I…t should be noted,the ability to join the Russian military is also open tonon-citizens from the Commonwealth of Independent States as well.
It varies depending on the mission. The actual answer would not be easy to find, as this is sensitive information.
Research the websites; and add up EACH countries Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, and Coast Guard; plus the Reserves of each component.
Yes and no. All military personnel from any country are given basic training as combatants in case they need it, and on a few occasions they have needed it, but only a percent…age of any military organization find themselves at "the sharp end." The rest of them do maintenance, push pencils, and load trucks, planes, ships, which allows those at "the sharp end" to have what they need to fight.. In the US military, Quakers and other conscientious objectors have abstained from combat, but they have served as medics and other non-combat personnel.
There's no way of knowing this, nor is there any way of findingout. Any numbers would be a complete guess.

The estimates vary greatly on the ratio of support to combatsoldiers, but the situation has certainly improved over time. Forinstance, the American Civil War had roughly ten s…oldiers for everysingle support unit. World War One featured about three supportstaff for every ten soldiers. In Vietnam, the average support tocombat ratio was 1:2. Today, that ratio suffers as a result ofcutbacks and layoffs, but ranges anywhere from 20:1 to 50:1.

Probably, the navy seals are given amphetamines (speed) daily. But then again maybe not, because soldiers in Vietnam indulged into drugs like heroin and marijuana that would c…ause them to be jailed 5-10 years when caught and removed from the military.
