An organised militar wis first assembled in Norway in the 9th century and wis early focused aroond naval warfare. The airmy wis creatit in 1628 as pairt of Denmark-Norawa, follaed bi twa centuries of regular wars. A Norse militar wis established in 1814, but the militar did nae see combat until the German occupation o Nirawa in 1940. Norawa abandoned its poseetion as a neutral country in 1949 tae become a foondin member o the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation (NATO). The Caukd War saw a muckle build-up o air stations an militar bases, especially in Northren Norawa. Syne the 2000s, the militar has transformed frae a focus on defence frae an invasion tae a mobile force for internaitional missions. Amang European NATO members, the militar expenditure o US$7.2 billion is the heichest per capita.
