Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. 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...
  3. BAES employ more people in N America than they do anywhere else.

    US 46900
    UK 32800
    Australia 6100
    Saudi 4400
    Sweden 1600
    S Africa 800

  4. 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.
  5. Got a few mates that work for BAE and have done a bit of business with them myself over the years.
    not a bad company to work for i hear
