According to Wikipedia (at least as good an OSINT surce as Pravda any day), NATO tanks strengths, for members other than the USA, are:

Nation 		Front line	Reserve		Total
Belgium						   0
Canada		 256	 			 256
Denmark 	  57				  57
France		 407	 			 407
Iceland						   0
Italy 		 197	 			 197
Luxembourg 					   0
Netherlands					   0
Norway 		  52	 			  52
Portugal	 133		  86		 219
UK 		 227	 			 227
Greece 		1244	 			1244
Turkey		3159		 619		3778
Germany 	 400		1600		2000	
Spain		 273		  54		 327
Czech Republic	 123				 123
Hungary		  30		 125		 155
Poland		1063				1063
Bulgaria					   0
Estonia						   0
Latvia		   3				   3
Lithuania					   0
Romania		 576		 750		1326
Slovakia	  30				  30
Slovenia	  28		  56		  84
Albania						   0
Croatia		 104				 104
TOTAL		8362		3290		11652

That’s a good deal better tank force ratio than we had during the Cold War, and for tanks not in storage probably outnumbers the Russians handsomely. I should think it’s a better ratio than the Germans had at the start of Barbarossa, anyway.

Of course, with all the new members NATO has, Sparker can have T-55s on both sides now.

All the best,

John.
