Rolls-Royce is the world’s second largest defence aero-engine manufacturer, providing around 25 per cent of the world’s military engines. Our portfolio covers all major sectors, including transport, helicopters, combat, trainers and tactical aircraft – altogether about 18,000 engines in service worldwide.
We are involved in two of the world’s most important fighter aircraft programmes – the Eurofighter and the Joint Strike Fighter.
Rolls-Royce can look back on a partnership with the Bundeswehr that extends back for more than 50 years.
Some 1,400 Rolls-Royce engines or partnership products are expected to be in service with the Bundeswehr over the coming years. This means that Rolls-Royce is involved in virtually all the major airborne weapon system programmes.
Rolls-Royce is also a leading partner in the following partnership programmes that are relevant to the Bundeswehr: the RB199 for the Tornado weapon system, the EJ200 for the Eurofighter weapon system and the Tyne for the C-160 Transall transport aircraft.
