http://www.fool.com/News/mft/2006/mft06061206.htm?ref=btpSaab Gets DefensiveBy Anders Bylund June 12, 2006 I'll bet you didn't know that LM Ericsson (Nasdaq: ERICY), the Swedish maker of telephones and its accompanying infrastructure, has a defense business, too. And I'm pretty sure you thought Saab made only cars, all under the GM's (NYSE: GM) wing these days.So when I tell you that Swedish defense, aviation, and space contractor Saab has agreed to acquire Ericsson's defense division in a landmark deal worth about $410 million, I may need to explain further. This acquisition is supposedly an early step in Saab's long-term plan to become an international defense powerhouse, and it's actually been a long time coming.......
