Soviet Military Power - Russian Military Power

The classic Cold War era publication returns, this time dealing with modern day Russia. The preface promises further publications on other security threats faced by the US, so perhaps we will see one on China, Iran, or others.

Back in the 1980's Janes Defence Weekly had a special section on the Soviet Union - for me that was the most interesting part of the magazine. I also remember Military Technology having a report on the Su-27. The highlight of the report was report what was probably the first photo of the Su-27 to appear in the West, taken by the Norwegian Air Force. More than 2 decades later and the world is now watching military developments in China with the same interest and eagerness it had with the Soviet military during the Cold War.

I doubt there'll be 1 on China, lest it antagonize them even more. There's a difference being an "adversary" like Russia was declared to be than a "strategic competitor". Annual Reports to Congress are & should be enough. Iran, NK, and others are not at the same threat level to warrant dedicated pubs. on them either.
