After the collapse of Iron Curtain, all nations tried to adapt to the new environment. They could either develop and produce their own weapons systems as before and bear all the associated burden. Or, they could co-operate in various phases of the project, sharing expenses, expertise, technology while creating a market even before the first prototype is built. In this thesis I address the issues and concerns which emerged in projects realized and on going; MEADS (Medium Extended Air Defense System), JSF (Joint Strike Fighter), Eurofighter and FLA (Future Large Aircraft). I will consider whether entering cooperative projects is a useful approach, and if it can be implemented as a solution for Armed Forces modernization. In general this thesis will consider lessons learned from the example projects and apply those lessons to understanding the future environment for international defense cooperation.
