Remember when Saab sold cars under the “born from jets” slogan? Well they weren't blowing smoke. Just contrails. Until it split off in 1968, the automaker was part of the same Saab AB group that made (and continues to make) jet aircraft – like the JAS 39 Gripen fighter jet that forms the backbone of air forces from Sweden to South Africa. Though the automotive operation effectively shut down several years ago, Saab AB still produces aircraft and a wide array of other military hardware. You'll probably need a defence-department procurement job to buy most of its products, though.
