Norway announced its intentions to transfer 22 F-16 fighter jets to Ukraine

Norway has announced its readiness to transfer 22 F-16 fighter jets to Ukraine, reports the Norwegian publication Nettavisen. The decision was part of a broader initiative in which the United States approved the transfer of a total of 65 such fighters from the Netherlands, Denmark and Norway, of which the latter accounts for the specified number of aircraft.

The decision to transfer the fighters had not previously been finalized, and it was planned that the delivery would only take place in the long term. However, US approval has accelerated the process.

However, as the source notes, not all fighters may be ready for immediate combat use. Approximately 10 of the 22 aircraft provided by Norway are in unknown condition, which may require additional measures to restore them and prepare them for service.
