Norway to return its military helicopters, seek repayment from NH Industries

- Norway will return military helicopters it had ordered from France's NH Industries because Oslo said they were either unreliable or were delivered late, the Nordic country's defence minister said on Friday.

The government said it would also seek repayment of 5 billion crowns ($523 million) plus interest and other costs from NH Industries, which is majority-owned by Airbus Helicopters EADSF, Leonardo FINMF and Fokker Aerostructure.
