The United States in comparison, has significantly less - 1.4 million - but, as Statista’s Martin Armstrong notes, when assessing the overall power of the world’s military forces, the U.S. comes out on top, ahead of Russia and China in second and third, respectively.

The index "utilizes over 50 individual factors to determine a given nation’s PowerIndex score with categories ranging from military might and financials to logistical capability and geography."

While a rating of 0.000 would represent the perfect score, it is considered realistically unattainable.

Not sure manpower is the correct index for “most powerful military” in the 20 20s

The lesser amount would be considered an important amount, so “significantly less” should be OK to use. Assuming the author was trying to convey that the difference is important, but likely he just was using “significantly less” to say the difference is large.

The number of difference is finite, so fewer is the correct usage. “Less” is an indeterminate number.
