GMB Class 71 is an electric multiple unit used by Flytoget for the Airport Express Trains on the Gardermoen Line of Norway. Sixteen three-car train sets were built by Adtranz Strømmen between 1997 and 1998. The units are capable of 210 km/h (130.5 mph), connecting Oslo Central Station and other stations in Metropolitan Oslo to the Oslo Airport, Gardermoen, along Norway's only high-speed railway.

In a three-car configuration, the units weigh 158 t (98.2 ton) and are 82.3 m (51.1 ftin) long, with a power output of 2645 kW (1643.5 hp). The units are similar to the NSB Class 73, and are related to the Swedish X2 units. The units have been involved in several smaller incidents, including one fatal accident, and have been criticized for not being accessible for the disabled. By 2009, all units were expanded with a fourth car.
