On Thursday 2 in November, the first three Lightning-35 fighters-2A, previously ordered in the United States, should arrive at the Norwegian Air Force Base in Orland, reports TSAMTO with reference to the resource NRK.no.


Norway will receive the first batch of F-35A


According to the resource referring to the general manager of the F-35 program in the Norwegian Ministry of Defense Morten Klever, “the solemn ceremony of adopting the AM-8, AM-9 and AM-10 aircraft will take place later in the week - November 10”.

TSAMTO recalls that Norway has joined the F-35 program as an 3-level partner in the project design and demonstration (SDD) phase. “In November 2008, the Norwegian Defense Ministry announced the F-35 Lightning-2 the winner of the tender for the supply of new generation fighter jets to the country's Air Force, designed to replace the outdated F-57 16,” the article says.

To date, the acquisition of 40 aircraft has been approved, and it is planned to purchase 52 units.

The Norwegian Air Force plans to announce the initial readiness of the F-35A for combat use in the 2020 year and its full readiness for combat use in the 2025 year.

      Well, raw is still an airborne log, a lot of problems, that’s why they will finish it up to the condition slowly.

          The feeling that from 2020-2025 only F35 will be the adversary of our VKS ...

            That's right. Comparing the output of combat aircraft per year across all countries,
            Obviously, the F-35 is produced more than all the others combined.
            Well, even China may surprise with mass release. They are capable of it.

              I’m not at all sure! They make incredible prices for them, that's for sure, but the fact that more pieces are produced is doubtful. Either their helmets do not fit normally in the cockpit, then the stealth coating must be re-applied - all these are signs of not so mass production and still years ahead of running-in, like holey windows with service packs or updates patching holes.

        One thing bothers me ... and the rasp does not go as far as the pencil core when processing and fine-tuning this product?

      Initial Operational Capability (IOC) Status
      characterizes the reliability of objects, the need for which arises at an arbitrary moment in time, after which failure-free operation is required for a certain period of time. Up to this point, such objects can be both in standby mode, and in application mode - to perform other work functions. In both modes, failures and restoration of the object's operability are possible.

          He apparently gets out of the cabin, allegedly unconscious
          Eglin Air Force Base exercises to extract an allegedly “unconscious pilot” Aug 6, 2014
          It is interesting that the pilot became aware of problems with oxygen supply only in July 2017, that is, the developer cannot solve the problem for more than 2 years

      Simply, "The Norwegian Air Force plans to announce the initial readiness of the F-35A for combat use in 2020 and complete readiness for combat use in 2025," and write them off as obsolete as early as 2028.

    An article about Norway and the F-35A, pictured is the vertical take-off of the F-35B. As often happens in VO, either the author believes that it will suit us anyway, or the author does not know the materiel on the subject of the article.

      This is to show his ugliness. smile A lot depends on the angle.
      If you put here such a photo (F-16 and F-35 in flight), for example, then
      the viewer has a different visual sensation

        Let it be, will it fly, with time, and carry out tasks that it can do.
        That's just whether it turned out the very perfection for which everyone was so happy / bragging ???
        Time and real affairs / successes ... no other evidence exists.

        From hezh! F 16 is incredibly beautiful! For me, it’s hard to take your eyes off him.
        Probably, in the framework of the now dominant concept, long-range air combat, and even on the outcome of these training battles https://naked-science.ru/article/tech/f-35-pokaza
        l-na-ucheniyah-polnoe, F35 plane needed.
        But nevertheless, all of a sudden, as a result, for example: the enemy's equivalence. any countermeasures, and if there is any situation, will have to go to close combat.
        And here - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hc4lpk4Fh2o, at about 47/45.
        The film is certainly not from the Russian fake conveyor, here you can believe it.
        Maybe Israel should continue to purchase (and ideally do the same) F16?

          And one more question . Israel buys engines for its F16, or produces it itself.
          If it produces, then such a part as blades is also its own, or is it imported?

          A good thing should be beautiful, yes yes ... but if you recall the story, the stupid \ angular Thunderbolt was a VERY effective machine, and the Anteater, Warthog !!! Performed tasks from and to!
          So, beauty is still not an absolute indicator of effectiveness.
          The design study of the project and the full-fledged test of complex equipment are the key to success.
          Well, they don’t make an air / cruise liner ... you need an effective fighter, and here from the “surge” in design thought to the effective implementation of the idea a long and expensive way ... I am. personally, for the Yankees it’s calm, they will bring the plane to acceptable performance characteristics, we can do better than others ... but according to anyone, this design has a limit where it is and what it is - we'll see.
