Global Strategic Bomber Market 2016-2020

Strategic bombers are predominantly flown to penetrate hostile territories and drop a large amount of air-to-ground weaponry for debilitating combat capabilities of the enemy forces. While strategic bombers are specifically designed to destroy strategic targets, like logistic facilities, infrastructures, and defense installation facilities, tactical fighters and attack aircraft are used for air interdiction operations that target enemy combatants and military platforms. Owing to the changing nature of warfare, the roles and responsibilities of strategic bombers are also getting transformed. Defense organizations are strategizing on deploying long-range strike platforms that are more capable in the era of dominating maneuver warfare. The analysts forecast global strategic bomber market t......

Global Anti-Tank Missile System Market 2016-2020

The tactical anti-tank missile systems are generally of two types. Long-range anti-tank missiles are very capable weapon systems, which are used to destroy heavy armored vehicles. They rely on warheads to penetrate and damage the tanks or armored vehicles. Whereas the short-range anti-tank missiles are man-portable, and they pose a lesser threat to armored vehicles. Traditionally, the infantry anti-tank weapons, such as anti-tank rifles, anti-tank rockets, and magnetic anti-tank mines, had limited armor penetration abilities and required soldiers to approach the target closely. However, with the introduction of the man-portable missile systems with larger warheads, the infantry units have the ability to strike at light and medium tanks from greater distances. The analysts forecast globa......
