Reuben F. Johnson is a veteran with over twenty years of experience in analysing and writing about defence technology, weapon systems, procurement networks and political-military affairs in Russia/Former USSR, China, Latin America and the Middle East. During his career, he has visited most of the major defence industrial sites in the former Soviet Union and other nations of the former Warsaw Pact and their analogous facilities in other parts of the world, and has written extensively on the subject of defence policy and the development of next-generation weapons. He was fortunate to have spent the 1990s living and working in Russia, where he was able to observe first-hand the immense transfer of weaponry, technology, know-how and design expertise from states of the Former USSR to China.
