Norway has selected the F-35 over the Gipen NG as it was assessed to be measurably superior in all areas, which was not surprising but what got my attention was that the F-35 was seen to be cheaper!

I know, I have been following this for some time now. It will be interesting to see if it garners the full support from the SV Party within their parliament. I guess though, that with Hoyre and FRP the decision will get passed and signed off officially regardless of what the SV crowd say.
Politics is a funny thing.

There appears to be serious doubt about the Norwegian claims that the F-35 is the cheaper as well as the more capable option.  I don't doubt that the F-35 is more capable but the cost claims did sound a bit iffy.
