Trump Announced the US Sold Norway Fighter Jets That Only Exist in Call of Duty

There is no F-52...yet.

News by Matt Kim, .

President Trump seems to be overestimating how far along the US fighter jet program must be as he recently announced that the US sold Norway fighter jets that, until now, were referenced only in the video game Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare.

In a report by the Washington Post Trump recently said, "In November we started delivering the first F-52s and F-35 fighter jets... We have a total of 52 and they've delivered a number of them already a little ahead of schedule."

The problem is that F-52s don't actually exist, except for appearing in Activision's Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare title. You can see it in action in the clip below.

Several reports are suggesting that Trump mistakenly combined the fact that there were 52 jets with the names of the F-35 fighters, thus creating an additional shipment of fictional F-52 fighter jets. Not all that surprising for a President whose faux pas include praising the fictional African country of "Nambia."
