I mean army was created by humans. The army didn't created anything by themselves.

Why it's not necessary to use verb be/was/were before verb created in this case?

Oh, I'v just now understood the answer! While I was writing this post. :-)
Created in this case isn't a verb, it's adjective that modified The army. And the main verb of the clause is - Is (is more than 2000...).
