If you think about it, Norway is pretty rugged country but has a lot of lakes. Floatplanes do make a lot of sense for that kind of landscape.

Nice picture. I was unaware Norway built seaplanes. Seems they were always buying their aircrafts from other countries. I found this information on Wikipedia:

The Marinens Flyvebaatfabrikk M.F.12 (sometimes known as the HÝver M.F.12, after its designer) was a seaplane built in Norway in 1939 as a military trainer aircraft[1] to replace the Norwegian Navy's aging fleet of M.F.8trainers. Only a single prototype was constructed before Germany's invasion of Norway in 1940. The prototype, M.F.12 F.14 (V), was the last trainer built for the Royal Norwegian Navy Air Service (RNNAS).
