Velcroman1 (1667895) writes "Military supply companies from Russia, China, UAE, Indonesia, Korea, and Libya showed off tanks, missiles and other weapons in Paris at the Eurosatory 2012 show, the largest international military technology show focused on land warfare. At the event, 53 countries were represented by more than 1,400 exhibitors for the 55,000 visitors, the United States leading with 158 companies. But a surprising trend was evident: This year, the number of companies from non-Western countries that showed off new weaponry boomed — especially Russia and China. "Western armed forces generally, and land forces in particular, are facing significant cuts in capability," said one expert. These smaller countries with weaker economies are seeing dollar signs, in other words — and who cares the denomination."
