British firms export military hardware and technologies to dozens of countries worldwide. Figures released today show what shipments are made and to whom. In 2011, export licences were granted for 45 different types of shipment to Egypt, 43 to Saudi Arabia and 38 to Iraq. Licences were granted for the export of 10 types of weapons and ammunition to Saudi Arabia alone, including sniper rifles and submachine guns. Use our interactive graphic to explore destinations and types of British arms shipments. The first tab shows recipient countries and shipment categories, while tab two lists exactly what each country imports. Figures shown are limited to FCO ‘countries of concern’ plus Bahrain, Egypt, Tunisia and Argentina. Data is from the Scrutiny of Arms Exports (2012) report.
