Damaged Norwegian won't be repaired and brought back into service, due to the staggering costs being higher than for a new-build (1.2-1.4 mEUR vs 1.1-1.3 mEUR). =

The capability gap this has created for the Norwegian Defence Forces will be plugged, still open exactly how. Low-hanging fruit is cancelling planned retirement of the corvettes and additional F-35's for the RNoAF. A single newbuilt frigate seem unlikely.

Cancelling of corvette retirement yes, but is it not more likely they will buy one more P-8 patrol plane or one more submarine than additional F35's?

F-35 is more versatile, though granted it is a question of whether ASW or AAW/ASuW are more important.

Since there’s now a full extra crew, one might think that naval solution would be preferred.

Fra hva jeg har hørt er det ikke et stort problem i dag, men det har skapt problemer for de planlagte kommende midtlivsoppgraderingene.

Med tanke på att en av fregatterna låg vid kaj över tiden så kan jag förstå att det inte är ett problem nu, men att det blir det när de ska in på modifiering.

Fyi Belgium and the Netherlands are buying new Frigates. Maybe Norway can buy one or more? Probably wont be up to Nansen level but its an opportunity

One extra submarine, because Norwegian industry is on it's way into that project. Industrial policy trumps everything in Norway.

One extra submarine is also the smarter option IMO.
