Abstract: Many countries in the Asia-Pacific region have extensive local arms industries. However, in terms of technology innovation these regional producers continue to run a poor third to the United States and Western Europe. Latecomer China may gain the advantage regionally. But it remains to be seen whether its accelerated spending, especially in R&D, will enable it to pull ahead of regional or global competitors.
