    Joint Strike Fighter

    Norwegian government wants Joint Strike Fighter
    9 hours ago

    OSLO, Norway (AP) The Norwegian government says it has picked the U.S. developed F-35 Joint Strike Fighter to replace its aging U.S.-made F-16 aircraft in a roughly 60 billion kroner ($8.5 billion) deal.

    The U.S. led-consortium had been competing with Sweden's JAS Gripen fighter to replace NATO-member Norway's 48 US-made F-16s.

    A news release from the government says the Joint Strike Fighter project led by U.S. company Lockheed Martin Corp. was selected on the basis of price and the aircraft's ability to meet Norway's operational requirements.

    Defense Minister Anne-Grete Stroem-Erichsen says the American fighter won in all key areas, including aerial information gathering and combat.

    The decision was announced in a statement Thursday.
