I am hcv men
When working for the Navy I had ready access to a fairly current edition of JFS from FY76-05. Efforts to beg, borrow or uh, borrow a more recent edition fell on deaf ears. Now, as a contractor, I spent my own money to get a factory-sealed book and we've been pleased to use it in the office ever since. More info than I'd ever need but quite suitable for my USN and FMS needs. (And if I ever need something to press flowers with, this'll work well!)
Everything I expected from Jane's. Much more enjoyable reading than JAWA.

I appreciated the fact that each weapon system in each ship entry had individual range stats so I didn't need to look it up individually.
This is the basic source of information on warships. Updated every year and very expensive. It's an exceptional resource and if you NEED a current copy you probably have one. Otherwise...

Here's how to access this information for a lower cost:
- Your library may subscribe
- Post-cold war, there aren't that many changes each year, so copies of 3-5 years old are not totally unreasonable for the hobbiest
- That same library gets rid of old copies
- Older copies sometimes appear in the discount bookstores
- An older copy plus the internet sometimes works for information searches
- Jane's website has some of the info available for free
- Also check the Naval Institute Press guides, some of them cover the same material, often cheaper
