Europe: Top military equipment OEMs
Western European companies’ arms sales decreased by 7.4 percent in 2014. Only German (+9.4 percent) and Swiss (+11.2 percent) companies show overall growth in their arms sales in real terms.
After looking at the biggest arms and military equipment manufacturers in the world last week, we have - or rather SIPRI did - now ranked out the European players. Please note that we included both Russian and Turkish companies here.
EDITOR'S NOTE_ *Companies are ranked according to the value of their arms sales in 2014. An S denotes a subsidiary company. A dash (–) indicates that the company did not rank among the SIPRI Top 100 for 2013. Company names and structures are listed as they were on 31 Dec. 2014.
