As CAAT report, “BAE Systems is the world’s fourth largest arms producer. Its portfolio includes fighter aircraft, warships, tanks, armoured vehicles, artillery, missiles and small arms ammunition.”

BAE owns a factory in Jersualem through its subsidiary Rokar International. Rokar provides systems for combat aircraft and helicopters used by the Israeli military in violence against Palestinians in Gaza.

BAE has a workshare agreement with Lockheed Martin producing the US F-35 stealth combat aircraft. Israel, for example, took delivery of its first F-35 in 2016. BAE has also worked in cooperation with Lockheed Martin and Rafael to produce and market the naval Protector drone used to maintain the siege of Gaza along the Mediterranean coast.
