Abstract:The role of transnational corporations in the military sector of South Africa is not an isolated phenomenon, but is closely related to the international position of South Africa as well as to its domestic economic structure.

Sections: the structure of the military market - the aircraft industry - missiles - warships - vehicles - small weapons - industries supporting the military sector - engineering and machinery electronics - computers - loans to the military sector - strategic minerals - oil - the role of TNCs in the development of South Africa's nuclear technology - military uses of the South African nuclear bomb.
