Airbus, Boeing, Lockheed Announce Bids on Danish Fighter Competition; Saab Withdraws

Airbus, Boeing and Lockheed Martin have submitted bids to replace the Royal Danish Air Force’s F-16 combat jet fleet but Saab has withdrawn from the competition.
A decision on the long-running effort to acquire a replacement for the F-16s is expected next year.
Airbus Defence and Space with the Typhoon, Boeing with the F/A-18E/F and Lockheed with the F-35 said they had lodged bids.
Denmark has been a partner on the F-35 for a number of years and Danish industry has already been the recipient of a series of work programs on the combat jet, making Lockheed the long-time favorite to secure the deal.
