1. Tanks

When they aren’t busy putting the finishing touches on the latest Galaxy S smartphone, their aptly named defence subsidiary, Samsung Techwin is busy building tanks and self-propelled artillery.

2. Nuclear Power Plants

Running all of your Samsung Electronics devices requires alot of power, so why not contract them to build your a nuclear plant or two? Lets just hope the control panel doesn’t run TouchWiz.

3. Skyscrapers

Samsung is well known as the largest consumer electronics company in the world, but did you also know that they built most of the tallest buildings in the world? The Petronas Towers, Taipei 101 and even the current record holder, the Burj Khalifa all involved Samsung C&T in their construction.

4. Military Robots

Samsung’s home country of South Korea, is unique as its border is constantly under threat from North Korean infiltration. To stop this, the company has been producing the SGR-A1 robotic sentry gun. This device identifies and targets possible enemies and then opens fire on the with a light machine gun.

5. Ships

Think the Galaxy Note was too big? You wait till you see the size of the ships built by Samsung Heavy Industries. Specialising in massive, purpose built nautical platforms, this subsidiary is second largest shipbuilding in the world.

6. Life Insurance

Did we forget to mention that Samsung is also a bank? Samsung Life Insurance, yet another massive subsidiary, is a Fortune 500 listed company, that is one of the largest providers of life insurance and annuities in South Korea.

7. Fighter Jets

As well as building fancy avionics and fire control systems for fighter aircraft, Samsung Techwin is also one of the major manufacturers of jet engine systems for these planes.  Just don't expect to see a big blue Samsung logo on the side
