F-35A CTOL

Norway's National Security Partner

The average age of the Norwegian fighter aircraft is more than 30 years — recapitalization is critical to sustaining the global competitiveness of the nation's armed services. The advanced technology and interoperability of the F-35 will support and augment Norwegian national security. In 2012, it was announced that the Royal Norwegian Air Force would be purchasing 52 CTOL (Conventional Take-Off and Landing) variants of the F-35. With the F-16, C-130J and P-3 programs, Lockheed Martin can point to a proven track record and solid tradition and heritage partnering with Norway.

Industrial Participation

The F-35 program will provide expertise and knowledge to Norway to help grow and develop their industrial capabilities. This partnership will also foster an environment of technology and knowledge sharing between countries.
