The question that has to be asked is this:

How much of BAESystems is actually British?

Well, they have their head office here... Other than that, I think they are more of a world arms company, what with having bits in the US, Germany, etc.

Still, if it makes people happy to call them a UK firm...

46900 in the US. But BAE needed to buy American companies in order to gain access to the Pentagon procurement programme. Good bit of business.
