Donald Trump hails delivery of fighter jets that only exist in Call of Duty

Jan 12, 2018

US president Donald Trump announced the delivery of fighter jets to Norway during a press conference with Norwegian prime minister Erna Solberg on Wednesday — but only one of the models he mentioned actually exists.
The other can only be found in one edition of the Call of Duty video game series.

“In November we started delivering the first F-52s and F-35 fighter jets,” Trump said. “We have a total of 52 and they’ve delivered a number of them already a little ahead of schedule,” the president told the media as reported by the Washington Post.

While the F-35 does exist and is made by defense company Lockheed Martin, the F-52 only exists if you’re a gamer at the controls of “Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare.”

Trump hailed the sale of the fictional plane models alongside Solberg at the White House, remarking on the “very real and growing defense relationship” with America’s Northern European ally.

Lockheed Martin, the defense company that produces the actual aircraft, said in a statement that the Norwegian government has so far authorized funding for 40 F-35s, and has taken delivery of 10 to date. Three arrived at Ørland Air Base in November, spokeswoman Carolyn Nelson said.
