I''m not too sure if this is the right category for this post but I''m wondering if anyone have any resources on where to find military information for major nations of the world. Right now I''m looking for Russia, Japan, China, Germany, England, France, and various Middle Eastern nations. Me and a friend are currently in the design phase for a game that deals with militaristic aspects of many, and more specifically those nations. What I''m looking for is documentation of past strategies, any type of opinions/reviews/considerations, and current models of arms and vehicles. Also images of what their military outposts/buildings look like or might look like.

Jane''s Guides are pretty much the best military information available. They have a website (http://www.janes.com/), but most of it is for pay. Some libraries carry their guides, and eBay usually has quite a few up for sale (search for "jane* -addiction" to avoid lots and lots of Janes Addiction stuff).

Yeah, Janes is *the* source for defense info, but tends to be extremely expensive, depending on exactly what kind of intel you're after.

The CIA maintain an excellent World Factbook with a variety of info on pretty much every country in the world. Far as I recall, it also has defense info - standing army strengths, that kind of thing. Check it out here.

Another good source:
FAS (Federation of Americam Scientists - a think tank of some kind)
