Denmark buys 27 F-35A fighter aircraft

DENMARK. The Danish Ministry of Defence announced that Denmark will acquire 27 F-35As to replace the F-16 aircraft, which has been in operation since 1980. The F-35As are expected to join the Royal Danish Air Force by 2024.

Terma has been waiting for this decision for more than a decade. This decision will allow Terma to explore further collaboration with Lockheed Martin, says Terma President & CEO Jens Maaløe.

Terma is producing composite and radar for the program and has been a supplier since 2004. Lockheed Martin’s F-35 aircraft was selected over Boeing’s F-18 Super Hornet and Airbus’ Eurofighter Typhoon.
