Abstract:

After the disintegration of the Soviet Union--in order to acquire hard currency--Russia opened up its arsenals to the people of the world, selling weapons cheap. At the same time, in Asia--due to various types of latent crises--a good number of nations, in expanding military power, competing in procurement, or independently developing weapons systems, produced the appearance of a new arms race. This article takes missiles as the main thing, introducing advanced Russian technology. In conjunction with this--using a number of nations and regions of Asia as examples--it analyzes the current status of Asian arms.
