Arms Transfers Database

Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI)

The SIPRI Arms Transfers Database traces suppliers and recipients of arms. It enables individual comparisons between countries with their option to select the range of years to cover and the weapon systems to include. It contains information on all transfers of major conventional weapons from 1950 to today, thus making arms flows around the globe transparent and explorable for everyone. For all deals information are provided about the number of arms ordered, the weapon designation, type of weapon, year of order/licence, year(s) of deliveries, the number of delivered/produced items and additional information (if available). Nevertheless, the database does not include SALW. In order to generate information, the supplier and recipient countries(s) need to be selected, then the range of years to cover and the weapons systems to include. Then, the information can be downloaded in English as a rtf-file.
