This includes the long-term plan:

  • Strengthen investment in long-range air defense to be able to facilitate the permanent protection of the central-eastern region of the country, including Oslo, which has a large population and important social institutions.
  • The Navy will get at least five new frigates with anti-submarine helicopters, new submarines and a unified ship class of up to ten large ships and eighteen smaller ships.
  • Take concrete measures to recruit, retain and re-employ sufficient personnel and experience within the structure of the armed forces, and provide adequate incentives to ensure that the armed forces remain an attractive workplace.
  • A comprehensive drone strategy for the defense sector must be developed and implemented, with concrete proposals on how the defense sector and various defense branches can adopt drone technology in line with the technological development in this area.

An additional NOK 611 billion will be spent on Norwegian defense over the next 12 years.

Defense Minister Erik Kristofferson was a happy man Tuesday afternoon.

– I am very satisfied that a broad settlement has been reached where all parties stand behind this historic investment in the armed forces. This shows that Norway is bearing the consequences of this dangerous and uncertain time for Europe and the world, Kristoffersen tells VG.
