War, made in Switzerland

52 min

Available until 04/01/2025

An unprecedented investigation tracks the journey of assault rifles, aircraft and armoured tanks made in Switzerland to regions grappling with armed conflict. Aircrafts intended for civilian transport are being used in Afghanistan for intelligence purposes and Sig Sauer rifles arm Saudi soldiers against rebels in Yemen.

This programme of the Swiss channel SRG SSR is part of The European Collection, a joint initiative of European public media (ARD, ARTE, France Télévisions, SRG SSR and ZDF), coordinated by ARTE.
