Summary The naval arms trade has been the focus of attention in recent years owing to such events as the tanker war in the Persian Gulf and the acquisition of a nuclear-powered submarine by India. This book discusses the interrelated factors involved in the transfer of naval systems, including maritime aircraft and guided missiles, and technology. It also describes the production processes for selected naval arms. The book presents an overview of the naval arms market, focusing on the principal supplier countries, and a detailed analysis of the procurement processes as illustrated by Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, India and New Zealand
