What is the most well-equipped non-state military?

Pic is a Hezbollah T-90 probably gifted by Syria. (And no, the Taliban lack any sort of armor)

          Hezbollah have zero ability to project power into Israel and are almost entierally focused on repelling a third Israeli invasion or helping out Iran is other proxy conflicts. Their huge missile stockpile is being held in reserve for if Israel decides to invade again.

              Project power as in cross the border and take and hold land. A border raid to take some hostages isn't really power projection.

                If you seriously followed the Syrian Civil War you'd remember that Hez was initially used as conventional infantry and ate shit until they were allowed to run their own operations.

                because they're very good at hitting civilians. militarily they aren't shit but they have a shitton of rockets that they'll aim at civilians once shit hits the fan. this is not the brag you think it is.

            Hezb in South Lebanon are a defensive militia, and are very capable in that limited role as IDF found out in 2006.
            Now both sides of the Blue Line are heavily defensive and neither wants to be the one to step over into the other's KZ.
            So now they just lob missiles, artillery and ATGMs at each other as PR and to keep the pressure on.

          They too weren't ready for Hamas attacking, by the time they could've mobilized, Israel already had like 100k troops on the border.
          Their only option was going all out with shitrockets, which they could've done, and likely would've been effective, but Nasrallah already knew that Israel would've gone total arab death on them if they did that and he likely preferred his gig of ruling southern Lebanon and doing whatever he wants

        Barely. Besides they both have an arrangement whereby hezb gives up (rather, to not pursue) central government aspiration via election in return for couple of Parliamental post and and free reign on southern Lebanon. Lebanese army are shit anyway they might as well let hezbollah deal with Israel because they're much better at it then the actual army will ever be

      An example of an unironic Deep State/state within a state. A paramilitary group with funding, training, manpower, and equipment to rival the standing Lebanese Armed Forces. They got a permanent seat within Lebanon's government after the end of the civil war and basically use it to shit up the place by perpetually poisoning the country's relationship with Israel and sucking off Iran.

      Imagine if the Weimar Republic had collapsed into civil war in 1933 but instead of seizing power or being decisively defeated, the Nazis were essentially granted self-rule in in their stronghold in Southern Germany with the Sturmabteilung being given their own allotment of seats in the Reichstag, and then proceeded to buy a bunch of worn out artillery pieces from the Soviets with Anglo/French economic aid that they embezzled and fire it into Poland with no purpose other than to agitate the Poles into periodically invading Germany to beat the shit out of them, and write shitty editorials in Henry Ford's newspapers claiming to have heroically resisted Judeo-Polish aggression as soon as they left. That's basically Hezbollah's grift.

    Talibs have lots of armor but aren't a 'non-state' since the Biden Collapse, as they're now the Afghan government.
    Hezbollah has armor but only on-loan in Syria as a sub-militia of the official SDF, they don't have any armor inside Lebanon.
