Typhoon fighter proposed to replace F-16 fleet.
Airbus Defence and Space has submitted its bid in response to the Danish Ministry of Defence ́s tender for the replacement of Denmark ́s fleet of F-16 fighters.
On behalf of Eurofighter it confirms that the Eurofighter Typhoon meets all of Denmark ́s requirements for its future fighter.
Eurofighter Typhoon is combat proven and 100 percent-integrated within NATO. A partnership within the Eurofighter community exists for the entire life of the aircraft, which will be the next 40-50 years. This would allow Denmark to have a modern well-equipped combat aircraft that can perform all necessary tasks and missions.
The many Typhoon aircraft in the neighbouring area also means that the cost of spare parts, operation and maintenance as well as development and upgrade will be kept to a minimum – and that Denmark’s participation in international missions will take place together with Typhoons from other European NATO member countries.
After the delivery to the Ministry on Monday 21 July, Uli Fingerle, Eurofighter campaign director said: “It gives us great pleasure to offer Denmark our proposal for the most advanced multi-role/swing-role aircraft currently available. We are convinced that, with its strong partnership between European nations and more than 400 aircraft already in service, Eurofighter is the rational choice for Denmark.”
Eurofighter Typhoon is the most advanced new generation swing-role combat aircraft currently available on the world market. Seven nations (Germany, the United Kingdom, Italy, Spain, Austria, Saudi Arabia and Oman) have already ordered the Eurofighter Typhoon. Eurofighter Typhoon is currently the largest military procurement programme in Europe.
Its high technology strengthens the position of European aerospace industry in the international market. The programme secures more than 100,000 jobs in 400 companies. Eurofighter Jagdflugzeug GmbH manages the programme on behalf of the Eurofighter Partner Companies Alenia Aermacchi, BAE Systems and Airbus Defence and Space in Germany and Spain, which are the most important aviation and aerospace companies in Europe.
Since delivery of the first Eurofighter Typhoon to the Royal Air Force in the United Kingdom at thed end of 2003, a total of 412 aircraft have been delivered to six nations.
