History edit

Jane's Defence Weekly was established in 1984 replacing the now-defunct Jane's Defence Review.[3] The latter was started in 1978 and was published on a monthly basis.[5] Award winning international journalist Clifford Beal is a former editor of the magazine.[6]

Samuel Loring Morison edit

In 1984, only months after the magazine was established, Jane's Defence Weekly gained worldwide attention after printing several images from an American spy satellite of the Nikolaiev 444 shipyard in the Black Sea, showing a Kiev-class aircraft carrier under construction.[7] The images were leaked by Samuel Loring Morison, an American intelligence professional, leading to the only conviction ever passed against a US government official for giving classified information to the press.[7][8]
