    Norway has decided to buy six submarines from the German company TKMS

    According to Michel Cabirol article «Sous-marins: la Norvège a choisi l'allemand ThyssenKrupp Marine Systems», published by the newspaper "La Tribune", Norway has decided to choose a shipbuilding company ThyssenKrupp Marine Systems (TKMS) as an artist contract worth 4 billion euros for the construction of the six non-nuclear submarines on the basis of the submarine project 212. The losing side was a French group DCNS.

    Norway acquires five basic patrol aircraft P-8A Poseidon

    On March 29, 2017, the Norwegian government signed an intergovernmental agreement with the United States through the Foreign Military Sales (FMS) on the acquisition of five new US patrol aircraft Boeing P-8A Poseidon for the Norwegian Air Force. The purchase price will be 9.825 billion Norwegian kroner (about 1.1 billion euros). The P-8A aircraft must replace the Norwegian Air Force with six currently used Lockheed P-3C / N Orion base patrol aircraft and two Dassault Falcon DA-20 ECM radio and radio reconnaissance aircraft.

    Recall that the Norwegian government approved the purchase of five P-8A aircraft under the "Project 2047" ("Vidareføring av MPA-og ISR-kapasitet") program in November 2016.

    The R-8A aircraft should be delivered to Norway in 2021-2022 and replaced by four P-3C and two P-3N aircraft in the 333rd Squadron of the Norwegian Air Force. Now the 333rd Squadron is based at the Annoya airbase in the north of Norway, but with the re-armament on the P-8A squadron it is planned to transfer to the Evenes airbase near Narvik (slightly to the south), and the Annoya base will be closed by 2023. It was reported that the Evenes base is also considered for the possible basing of the US Navy P-8A aircraft.

    Thus, Norway became the fourth foreign customer of the P-8 aircraft after India (which received eight P-8I aircraft from 2012 to 2015 and ordered four more), Australia (which ordered 15 P-8A aircraft, the first aircraft was delivered in 2016) and Great Britain (which ordered nine P-8A aircraft for delivery in 2019-2021). The US Navy has so far ordered 117 P-8A aircraft, of which more than 50 have been delivered since 2012 (the 50th aircraft was transferred on January 5, 2017).
