Abstract : This paper assesses how the post-Cold War international arms market is changing in revolutionary ways. It begins by describing the impetus for many of the in-progress structural and operational changes now sweeping the international arms market. Next, it identifies and describes some emerging trends that spring from the changing context within which weapons exporters operate. Finally, it explores the strategic implications of some of these developments for the future development, production, and operation of weapons.
