Elbit Systems is Israel’s largest arms company. It manufactures drones, systems for military aircraft, armed remote control boats, and military land vehicles. Elbit describes its drones as “the backbone” of Israel’s drone fleet (Elbit website). These drones were extensively used by the Israeli military in the 2014 attack on Gaza (Defence News, 12.8.2014).
As well as the factory in Oldham that manufactures electronic control systems and software for military vehicles including drones, Elbit has three other plants in the UK manufacturing drone engines (Shenstone, Staffs) and power/air-conditioning systems (Tamworth,Staffs) for military vehicles, and surveillance equipment (Broadstairs, Kent).
