Historically in WW1. What do you think?
Here's my take on what I have read so far . . .
Ottoman Turkey 5
I would swap UK and France, esp. the Guards, Canadians, Anzacs were pure elite corps. French had no large breakthrough corps equivalent of the Stormtroopers or the ones mentioned. Also i would give Bulgaria a 5, Russia a 5, Italy a 4 and Romania a 3. Serbia can be 7 or even 8.
Also, WW1 gold (an old and forgotten game with lots of bugs but with some great research and details) had a great system wherein you had units as per nationality (sub-nationality) and same units were born with experience tags like - Elite, Veteran, Regular, Reserves and Conscripts.. so a Elite would get a +2 attack/defense and conscripts would get -2 attack/defense.
The elites were in low numbers, conscripts were only raised as emergency (scrapping the barrel), also costs to reinforce were pro-rata basis (Elites costing more and so on).
In addition, minor Russian nationalities like Finns, Baltics, Ukrainians, Turkish Muslims, Caucasian Muslims were given some units which would rebel if Russian morale fell below a certain point. (Caucasian Muslims would rebel if Kars fell, Turkish if Muslim conscription ordered etc.)
Similarly for Austria, Czech, Slav, units would rebel below a certain morale point causing a cascade effect. (Czech units would rebel after Kaiser Franz died, Slav would rebel anytime against Russia/Romania/Serbia but not against Italy)
For Ottomans, Arab units would rebel. (Arab units after Lawrence captures 1/2 towns)
For British the Indians would (but with a very low % of rebellion, say others were at 90% the Indians at 20% or something).
