Abstract:

One major purpose of this research was the development of a methodology by which economic, political, and military measures can be utilized to predict the composition and size of the future Soviet Maritime Fleet. A second goal was the analysis of the relative importance of the various predictive factors in explaining Soviet shipping development and a comparison of three factor-derived models with other major maritime nations, especially the USA.
