Despite there being relatively few major advances in the amphibious vehicle sector, OEMs are striving to achieve the optimum balance between land and water capabilities.

The global proliferation of night vision technology continues as manufacturers seek to stay ahead in providing land forces with a critical advantage over their opponents.

Diverse modern operating environments and the challenge of staying one step ahead of adversaries are both factors in maintaining momentum in the assault rifle market. 

Addressing the need for increased operational mobility, wheeled self-propelled howitzers are providing multiple benefits to cost-conscious armies worldwide.FEATURE


Recent events have shown that attacks using CBRN weapons and agents are no longer remote possibilities, and governments are responding to this in their vehicle procurement planning.

As demand increases worldwide for heavy mortar systems, LWI examines the evolution of the industry, including the progress of ongoing contracts as well as the emergence of new agreements and products.


Responsible for equipping US Special Operation Forces, Colonel John Reim, PEO SOF Warrior Systems at US Special Operations Command, speaks to Grant Turnbull about current demands and how his office is helping field the latest equipment to these elite units deployed around the world.
