Who are ‘Roxel’?

  • Roxel manufacture engines for Stormshadow and Brimstone missiles.
  • Since 2013, 100 Stormshadow and 1000 Brimstone missiles have been sold to Saudi Arabia, at an estimated value of £180million.
  • These missiles have been used by the Saudi Air Force in Yemen.  We believe they will continue to be used in this way in future.
  • Since March 2013, the Saudi Air force have repeatedly bombed civilians in Yemen.
