With Norway electing to remain in the JSF consortium so far, it isn't too far-fetched to imagine that considerable pressure would be applied for the country to buy what supports local industry, unless the other bidders make an offer Norway can't refuse. Of course, another one of the most important considerations is price.
Norway has expressed displeasure at its work share in the JSF program. This led to the country considering leaving JSF earlier in the year. Norway is also involved in some production for the Typhoon program.
On price, the cost of JSF is not yet clear (development incomplete) which does make a Typhoon purchase a less risky exercise in terms of cost.
