Bro i have some Algerian friends they love Turkish too much btw, so one day Erdogan went to Algeria and signed some important agrements to improve relationships. That day i start to search about Algerian armed forces and i get shock! THeir armed forces more modern and well equipped than us at some fields! They allways train their army and have colabration with TAF so when i analysed them as equipment and training they are more stronger than Pakistan, Egypt, Iran etc.
They almost equivalent with TAF but they have no experience at the battlefield as you say, if their army join our operations and trained well by our forces, im sure they will be real threat for its enemies.
When i watch their military videos also i noticed that their equipment looks very shiny and well maintained, Algerian army sounds very quiet and deep...
To say that they are equivalent to the Turkish armed forces has to be the funniest comment I have read today with all my respect for you brother. They are not more well equipped than any of the branches of the Turkish armed forces. Neither in quantity nor quality in both the way of conducting warfare, and weapon platforms.
The armies of Pakistan and Egypt are also somehow larger, and more well-equipped in all the branches, but the similarity between Pakistan-Egypt-Algeria is that most of their equipment is eastern-based China/Russia.
The source of the equipment doesn't really matter. Pakistan with its Eastern (notably Chinese) sourced weapons are ahead in war fighting among many muslim majority countries which has western dominated arsenals.The armies of Pakistan and Egypt are also somehow larger, and more well-equipped in all the branches, but the similarity between Pakistan-Egypt-Algeria is that most of their equipment is eastern-based China/Russia.
I got same impression though I am probably bit biased because of close Algerian friend of mine here in Canada. One of best well-roudned guys I know in real life actually. Its good to have an Algerian like that as friend because they got your back forever.
One thing I have noticed though is lot of what you gather comes from inside-out way stemming back to the prolonged brutal liberation war Algerians waged against the French.
That stuff stays with you and is not forgotten easily at all (especially its cost) in the military you have later....as the population is very aware of sacrifice that brought them freedom.
It means in any future war afterwards (the whole point of having a military to protect that hard earned freedom), their toughness is guaranteed a very long time.
This drives the sheer grit and professionalism a military thrives on from the inside out (the equipment and training are the next parts that augment this core)
Vietnam is another country I have sensed this too....along with some others.
@Viva_vietnamm actually earlier posted quite interesting on the shared camaraderie on this matter.

We indeed we have a couple of factors when comparing the armed forces of different countries. You have the quality of weapons/quantity, the size of its army, the training+ strategy, as well as the experience of the army. We both are well aware of the technological superiority in most fields between the Western camp, and the Eastern camp..The source of the equipment doesn't really matter. Pakistan with its Eastern (notably Chinese) sourced weapons are ahead in war fighting among many muslim majority countries which has western dominated arsenals.
Probably one of the best (if not the best) fighting force in all the muslim majority countries.
It's not the source of the tools, but how and what they do with the tool.
