Export of Arms - British Expertise

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. I thought that some of our members would be interested in an item of business in the Northern Ireland Assembly (12th Jan). It went as follows:

    I think it commendable that British industry is bringing back to this country much-needed currency by the export of weapons to the feuding fellahin of the Middle East. I just wish that Provisional Sinn Fein would declare it in their tax returns.
     

  2. Eh?

    Isn't she referring to Shorts Missile Systems? Are SF shareholders?
     
  3. You're a hard man to please, OT.
     
  4. I'd be ecstatic if you'd tell me what you're on about.
     
  5. Raytheon in the ahem North West of the Province.
    Thales (the former Shorts Missile Systems) products would be of limited value to the IDF since the Palestinian Air Force isn't very big.
     
  6. No it isn't. Bloody effective, those missiles.


    I didn't know there were two missile makers in the north; kosher ones anyway.
