"Norwegian government officials are now admitting that the huge costs of replacing the country’s current fleet of F16 fighter jets will likely cut into state funding for schools, health care and transport programs. The government may decide to trim its order, from 52 of the new F35 jets to 46."

Old news. Original requirement 48. Then 56. Now 52, where the final 6 require a separate appropriation.

So +4 over the original requirement.
