Alongside Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg, President* Donald Trump praised himself for delivering a bunch of jets to Norway as part of our evolving defense partnership — and they sound pretty great.
“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.”
This is great news for Norway, as the F-52 sounds downright impressive:
The F-52, also known as the F-52-B is an advanced fighter aircraft in service of the United States of America…
It is equipped with afterburners for greater speed to outrun aircraft, as well as air brakes, which provide the fighter with additional maneuverability in tight corners or for avoiding enemy fire. Its primary armaments include a rotary cannon for machine gun fire and missiles capable of both air-to-air and air-to-ground action. The F-52’s weapon system automatically locks on to targets in the middle of the onboard HUD and effectively homes in on a selected target.
One of the fighter’s most unique features is the ability to double as a drop pod. Either for use in emergency situations or for covert insertion; the entire cockpit can be ejected from the body of the aircraft allowing the pilot to fly the drop pod into a landing zone, which would not traditionally suit an aircraft.
Unfortunately, those words are from the Call of Duty Wikia rather than any real publication because the F-52 only exists in a video game. It looks like a lot of fun to fly, though:
Is the U.S. government developing this aircraft? Defense company Lockheed Martin refused to tell the Washington Post, but the answer is probably a lot more simple than the secret manufacture of a jet from a video game: Trump is an idiot, and we are all doomed.
