Now that Norway has Fallout’s T-60 Power Armor, can anything stop them?
Trump announced on Wednesday that the U.S. had sold a number of “F-52s” to Norway.
“In November we started delivering the first F-52s and F-35 fighter jets,” Trump said, standing alongside Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg. “We have a total of 52 and they’ve delivered a number of them already a little ahead of schedule.”
The only problem? The F-52 is a fictional plane that only exists in the Call of Duty video game series.
Perhaps the president was just confused by so many numbers being in his prepared statement—or maybe he just loves Call of Duty? The Washington Post, who first ran the article, received no response when it reached out to White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders for comment.
We’ve already sent a full supply of T-60 power armor their way as well. https://t.co/vllwtrjhV7

That’s pretty generous since it’s some of the best armor in the game (although considering the destination, they might have been better off going with the winterized T-51b).
Twitter was quick to applaud the move—but also had some questions.
I thoroughly approve of this message. 👍
