New Defense market report from Business Monitor International: "Kazakhstan and Central Asia Defence & Security Report Q1 2014"
Boston, MA -- (SBWIRE) -- 12/31/2013 -- BMI's Kazakhstan And Central Asia Defence & Security Report for Q114 makes several key findings. Firstly, despite the Soviet Union having dissolved two decades ago, the armed forces of the countries surveyed in this report continue to make use of ageing and obsolete military equipment. This can be seen by the large inventories of Cold War-era Soviet-supplied materiel that continues to furnish their inventories.
Secondly, despite the security challenges faced by these countries, notably in the form of 'blowback' from the civil war in nearby Afghanistan, local border disputes and domestic insurgencies, there are no major re-equipment programmes being undertaken to address materiel shortcomings in any of the five countries surveyed in the report. Typically, all five states carry out piecemeal acquisitions of small quantities of military equipment; witness Kazakhstan's order for Airbus Military C-295 turboprop freighters. This is arguably the largest military aircraft acquisition programme in this region.
