Silent Weapons for Quiet Wars is the debut studio album by American hip hop group Killarmy. It was released in August 5, 1997 under Wu-Tang Records and Priority Records. Recording sessions took place between 1995 through 1996 at 4th Chamber Studio in Stuebenville, Ohio and 36 Chambers Studios in Staten Island, New York City. The majority of the album was produced by 4th Disciple with the exception of two tracks produced by RZA (of Wu-Tang Clan). Feature guest appearances by Masta Killa (of Wu-Tang Clan), Street Life, Prodigal Sunn and Hell Razah (of Sunz of Man).

The album title was taken from a document that came to light in the mid-1980s detailing an alleged New World Order plan for world domination, a topic that was explored in Milton Williams Cooper's infamous book Behold a Pale Horse.

Silent Weapons for Quiet Wars initially received mixed reviews from critics, who saw the group as a low-rent version of the Wu-Tang Clan because of similarities in the group's street-oriented Five Percenter rhymes and dark, grimy production. The album was well received by Wu-Tang and underground hip hop fans, acclaimed for its unique combat themes and stellar production.

The album spawned the singles: "Swinging Swords", "Wake Up", "Wu-Renegades", "Fair, Love & War", "Camouflage Ninjas" and "Clash of the Titans.
