First published in 1978. Initially published quarterly but later bi-monthly. A magazine covering military and defence matters with English only text. The first 7 issues featured only a single subject in each issue, but later issues contained several feature articles. A4 size, with 48-64 pages each, illustrated with many b+w and colour photos and some line drawings. The feature articles mostly concerned Israeli and Middle East related military topics, both current and historical, but with increasing coverage of the armed forces worldwide. From 1984 the subtitle ‘Defence Update’ was added and the magazine became monthly. It contained news and reviews about new products and defence programmes – highlighting Israeli and international activities. It continued to include good coverage of military aircraft update programmes. By 1986 ‘Defence Update International’ had become the main title of the magazine. It ceased publication in 1989, in favour of an on-line website magazine.
