President Donald Trump said the US had sold Norway F-52 fighter jets during a joint press conference with Prime Minister Erna Solberg on Wednesday.
But no such aircraft exists. The president may have misspoke because the US has sold Norway 52 F-35s.
Oslo received the first three last November.
Trump is getting roasted on Twitter for his gaffe:
F-52s? Oh boy. Bet the Marines are gonna want a STOVL version.

Some commenters are jokingly asking if Trump plays “Call of Duty,” which features an aircraft called an F-52:
Selling F52’s to Norway. Now they can dominate Call of Duty.
