"World's first supercomputer outside US"

Here’s a great headline from the Economic Times:

Canada to get world’s first supercomputer outside the US

This refers to the big IBM being built at U of Toronto. At first I thought this was a copy edit problem, but upon further reading I think it’s just a language problem

Further, it will also be the first largest supercomputer outside the US and the second largest system ever to be built on a university campus.

Emphasis mine. Still, definitely make me look.
