    Russia is militarily superior, Great Britain has a very strong military but Russia does too and much more troops.

    If the U.K for whatever reason was attacked or a invasion attempt was made and they didn't want help from the outside you could bet your *** they would put up a hell of a fight probably do some damage too but I think they would be overcome with Russian troops and artillery / mechanized units.

    That would require the RU to destroy the UK's Navy and Air force which would be a challenge AND they would have to do it all before the U.S or NATO got word of it. Before either scenario to play out.

    BUT if the Americans got word of the situation the Russians would have to worry about fighting on multiple fronts while trying to protect their homeland and bases, They would end up fighting the U.S and U.K military and resistance forces which would be extremely costly.

    Alone Great Britain is strong but not strong enough to handle a war with Russia alone.

    Every time Great Britain fought Russia they had to have help from one of the neighboring countries. Not to mention Russia is massive.

    No Russia is the worlds second most powerful nation while the UK is fifth or sixth.And Russia has about 2 times as much troops as Britain.If they were to go to war head to head bet your money on Russia because the only way the UK might win is with the help of the US.

    Russia's troops : 2,035,000

    Russia's Budget for Armed Forces: $71.2 billion


    British troops:206,600 active personae

    British Budget for Armed Forces: $60.8 billion

    (Although the UK does have 14,607,725 males and 14,028,738 females ready for combat Russia is still far Superior)
