The yearbook was released in the presence of Shri Sudhir K Mishra, CEO & MD of BrahMos Aerospace, who handed over the first copy of the book to Shri Parrikar.

The Foreword of the yearbook has been written by Honourable Minister of State for Defence Shri Rao Inderjit Singh.

Brahmand World Defence Update 2016 provides incisive, comprehensive and up-to-date facts, figures and data on the armed forces of 113 countries worldwide with the objective to give a comprehensive assessment of the present-day global military order.

The yearbook has covered each country's overall military capability by listing its existing weapons' inventory, ongoing/ future arms procurement plans and annual defence spending besides detailing important political & defence personnel along with the country's conflict areas.

It has also provided detailed strategic information on 33 leading countries selected from each continent/region with key focus on their geopolitical importance, strategic relations, threat perception, defence capabilities and defence budget trends.

In its latest issue, the yearbook also includes a new chapter on "Land Warfare Systems" of six important countries - Brazil, China, France, India, Russia and the USA.

Even as modern warfare is rapidly evolving with a sea-change in military technology, the importance of ground troops and land platforms remains critical even today. The new chapter lists the existing inventory of land platforms of all the above six countries along with some new/futuristic ones which are expected to be inducted in future.

Like all its previous editions, the military yearbook promises to be a vital source of reference for the armed forces and defence establishments and also for the global arms manufacturers, research institutions, academia, think-tanks, Captains of industries and even for the general readers keen to know about latest global military trends.

The yearbook is published by Pentagon Press.
