Norway Plans to Order Five P-8A Poseidon Maritime Patrol Planes

Norway is one of the countries that always tries to be secure and make sure that their people are safe. Their goal is to always meet any future obstacles and any future security challenges. Due to this they are planning to order five Boeing Co P-8A Poseidon maritime patrol plans. The Nato Country’s defense ministry said they are doing this to mainly reach and to be able to meet any future security challenges. They are aware that anything can happen and they like to stay safe.

Norway’s main concerns is Russia, they are always focusing on them since they are a neighboring border. Russia has become a focus of the military. Especially after the annexation of Ukrain’s Crimea region. On the other hand, Sweden and Finland that are not in the NATO alliance also are expressing concerns about incursions by Russian submarines and other naval vessels. In fact, the Defense Minister Ink Erikson Soereide said.

“The new security situation increases our demand for situational awareness in our own vicinity. The ability to handle current and future challenges must therefore be strengthened,” also “The introduction of the Poseidon aircraft is crucial for Norway to maintain a leading position and expertise on strategic conditions in northern areas. This is mainly important because it is going to be an exceptional time for them to take care of their people and county.  They say that this will cost them at least0 10 billion Kroner which is equivalent to 1,1 billion. The deliveries are expected for 2021 and 2022. This is a long time from now but it is a plan that was introduced in 2013. This air patrol and support is in cooperation with Coast Guard to assist in search and rescue operation. They also plan to play a vital role in environmental monitoring. The Bioregion press released to continue an MPA (maritime patrol aircraft) and ISR (intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance) capability that can meet current and future challenges, the Government has submitted a proposal for acquiring five P-8A Poseidon for the Armed Forces. Beside the actual aircraft, the contract also includes modern sensors, surveillance systems, new anti-submarine weapons and support systems.”
