President Donald Trump has got himself caught in another blunder a few days ago.
By announcing that he had delivered 52 F-52 and F-35 Fighter jets to Norway, Trump caused a bit of confusion. This had been the first time we heard about an actual F-52, and many were intrigued by the plane.
“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.”
Questions were asked, and digging was done. It was then revealed that this wasn't a real plane, but was, in fact, a fictional plane from the Call of Duty franchise.
It was announced that Trump had been reading from a statement, and the "F' designation was assigned to the Fighter Jets in the United States Inventory, such as the aforementioned F-35 Lightning II, with the 52 being the amount sent to Norway.
As of right now, the Lockheed Martin F-35 is still the most advanced jet in the U.S. inventory and has a program in place valued at $1 Trillion over the next 60 years (the most expensive program in history), so it looks to be here for a while.
