Norway Air Force rates Eurofighter even with F-16

June 3, 1998 (by Lieven Dewitte) - Norway's Air Force said on Thursday that the Eurofighter and American-built F-16 fighter planes were deadlocked in a competition for a big new order.
Norway's Air Force reckons it needs 30 to 40 new jetfighters to replace aging F-5s and its existing fleet of F-16s. A decision is expected in late 1999. Lockheed Martin offers an upgraded version of the Fighting Falcon, designated F-16 Block 50N.
