Donald Trump has been proudly discussing the United States’ contribution to defence efforts in Northern Europe…by announcing the delivery of aircraft that only exist in Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare.
During a conference with Norway’s prime minister last week, Donald Trump claimed that the United States had been delivering fighter jets quicker than planned: “In November we started delivering the first F-52s and F-35 fighter jets. We have a total of 52 and they’ve delivered a number of them already a little ahead of schedule.”
As you can see below, the Lockheed Martin F-35 Lightning II is very real and chances are you might indeed be grateful of having a few of these bad boys in your defence arsenal.
On the other hand, you may feel a little less safe with the F-52:
Sure, it looks nice. But I’m not convinced that a pixelated rotary cannon would do an awful lot of damage during combat or withstand much enemy fire.
Of course, maybe Donald Trump hasn’t made a mistake at all and he has in fact managed to shift all those second-hand copies of COD: Advanced Warfare littering the shelves of CEX onto Norway’s unsuspecting air force. One can only hope they think to take the F-52 for a test drive before finding mid-combat that half their arsenal exists only on a scratched up Xbox 360 disc.
It looks like the Norwegian prime minister has a contingency plan though, because just moments before her meeting with Donald Trump, Erna Solberg was pictured playing Pokémon GO. So if those fictional fighter jets don’t work out, let’s hope she at least managed to snag Farfetch’d or Santa Hat Pikachu during the recent timed events to really boost the defence effort.
Elsewhere, unconfirmed reports suggest that Theresa May is currently looking into the use of Chocobo‘s for ground combat, whilst insisting that all British soldiers are able to perform a spin dash.
