U.S. 1995 Data for the UN Conventional Arms Register
Walkling, Sarah, Arms Control Today
In 1995, the United States transferred more than twice the number of major conventional weapons to other countries than in 1994, according to the U.S. declaration to the UN Register of Conventional Arms submitted on April 30. Adapted as a voluntary measure by the UN General Assembly in 1991, the register provides the total number of weapons imported and exported for seven categories of weapons: battle tanks; armored combat vehicles (ACVs); large-calibre artillery systems; combat aircraft; attack helicopters; warships; and missiles and missile launchers. The register also collects information on domestic military holdings and procurement and on national arms transfer policies.
