Welcome to the latest issue of Global Defence Technology magazine

Russia’s war in Ukraine is driving European countries to spend further on their land domain capabilities as the spectre of conventional warfare returns to the continent, driving European defence spending for military vehicles to top the global rankings. The majority of this spend also takes place in the main battle tank, infantry, and armoured vehicle segments of the military land vehicle market, indicative of the kinds of capabilities that are being sought in European capitals.

Elsewhere, in the naval domain AUKUS member states are each embarked on major surface warship programmes, with commonality between the UK, Australia and the US being sought in areas such as information sharing, weaponry, and platform designs.

Also, don’t miss out on the latest insight from our team on the US Presidential Budget Request, an exclusive interview with Honeywell Aerospace, analysis of the UK’s secretive nuclear deterrent, and more.

All this and the latest defence industry news, comment, and analysis from GlobalData.
