arms manufacturer

Arms manufacturers represent the productive units of the arms industry, also known as the arms trade, a global industry which manufactures and sells weapons and military technology. It consists of a commercial industry involved in the research and development, engineering, production, and servicing of military material, equipment, and facilities. In most contexts it is intimately connected with the so-called military industrial complex, a self-perpetuating complex of industries that wields influence in governments to create anxiety in populations about security for which it claims to provide an antidote, while actively promoting its products to governments.
