This edition looks in detail at the Royal Navy as it faces the latest defence review, and evaluates the Indonesian Navy, while significant ships will include the USN's San Antonio class amphibious transports, the new Dutch OPVs, the Turkish Milgem class corvettes and the Greek Roussen class fast attack craft. There are also technological reviews dealing with naval aviation by David Hobbs, focussing on maritime patrol aircraft, while Norman Friedman surveys recent electronic warfare developments. Intended to make interesting reading as well as providing authoritative reference, there is a strong visual emphasis, including specially commissioned drawings and the most up-to-date photographs and artists' impressions.
