On 9 June 2016 the Danish Government, the Social Democrats, the Danish Social-Liberal Party, Liberal Alliance and the Danish People’s Party have entered into an agreement on new fighter aircraft in replacement of the ageing F-16 jets. It was agreed to procure 27 F-35 fighter aircraft, and to finance this procurement within the budgetary framework of the Danish Defence – with the ambition of keeping intact its operational capabilities.
F-35A Joint Strike Fighter (JSF)
The aircraft has been developed in cooperation between nine partner countries (the USA, the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, Italy, Turkey, Canada, Australia, Norway and Denmark).
The primary manufacturer is the American company Lockheed Martin.
The American Danish Business Council looks forward to cooperate with Lockheed Martin and other suppliers to the Joint Strike Fighter in order to ensure mutually beneficial cooperation projects between US JSF contractors and Danish companies.
