Rolls-Royce produces military aircraft engines, naval engines, power supplies for military vehicles, and cores for nuclear submarines. On the civil side, it produces engines for aircraft and ships, and a variety of other power systems. While arms comprise only 32% of its total sales, it is still the world’s 22nd largest arms company (SIPRI). It has military aircraft engines in service with “160 customers in 103 countries” (Rolls-Royce website).
In January 2017, following long-running investigations into allegations of bribery, involving military and civil contracts in twelve countries, Rolls-Royce reached a settlement with the UK’s Serious Fraud Office and US and Brazilian prosecutors. In total, the company is to pay £671 million in penalties. (Guardian, 16.1.2017). Read the court judgment.
