This is a direct response to the many requests asking Palladium to re-release the Compendium of “Contemporary” Weapons. Since we did not add any new material to make it truly “contemporary,” we renamed it the Compendium of “Modern” Weapons. All the weapons contained in this tome are still viable today and represent the vast majority of weapons used around the world.
