The United States of America has successfully delivered the first batch of F-52 fighter jets to Norway as part of a major arms deal between the two allied countries, President Donald Trump announced at the White House on Wednesday.
The only problem is that the F-52 does not exist in real life. It is a fictional advanced fighter aircraft from Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare. The installment was released back in 2014 and Sledgehammer Games made sure to add as much futuristic defense technologies for the United States of America as possible.
“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 Washington Post points out that President Trump accidentally mixed up the total number of fighter jets with the actual names. So instead of mentioning 52 units of the F-35 Lightning II fighter jet, he managed F-52 instead.
Lockheed Martin, the defense company that produces the actual aircraft, confirmed that it has delivered ten F-35 fighter jets to the Norwegian government so far from an authorized funded order for 40. However, there was nothing said regarding whether it has a F-52 fighter jet in its inventory or if the United States Air Force is a fan of the Call of Duty franchise.
