Although, I admit, the noises typically emitted by avid gamers will be fairly disturbing.
Still, I worry the 2 genres of preventing and immolation could have been conflated throughout a presidential press conference on Wednesday.
US President Donald Trump, standing on the podium alongside Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg, associated the supply of recent fighter planes to the Scandinavian nation.
“In November, we began delivering the primary F-52s and F-35 fighter jets. We have a complete of 52 and so they’ve delivered a quantity of them already a little bit forward of schedule,” he stated.
This all appeared like excellent news. Until, that’s, some started to surprise what F-52s had been.
Lockheed Martin definitely makes very high-quality, stealthy. The firm did not instantly reply to a request for remark as as to whether the president had inadvertently revealed a brand new airplane that was, for some motive, being delivered to Norway first.
Those of a gaming bent will know, nevertheless, that F-52s do exist on this planet of Call of Duty, circa 2014.
