A completely revised and fully-updated third edition of the most comprehensive guide to warships available to the general public.
Since the first edition of this book, published in 1996, there have been major changes to the world’s navies. A new generation of warships is entering service, replacing the fleets built up during the Cold War. Recognizing this evolution in sea combat, this new edition is completely up-to-date and modern in its coverage of all types of warships.
Jane’s Warship Recognition Guide provides technical specifications from the renowned Jane’s Fighting Ships (published since 1898 and the acknowledged world leader in naval reference). The new format of this edition also allows for additional warships and information to be featured.
Over 200 classes of warship are covered with:
• Class and ship names
• Weapons system and radars
• Detailed line drawings
• Full page photographs of every warship
• Key recognition features
This book maintains the Jane’s standard as the best military guides around.
