Eurofighter Typhoon again offered to Denmark
Eurofighter joins the New Danish Combat Aircraft Competition targeted at safeguarding Denmark’s national air defence.
Eurofighter CEO, Enzo Casolini, said: "We welcome the invitation of the Danish Government and we are pleased to enter into this international competition. Eurofighter Typhoon is the most advanced new generation combat aircraft that can fulfill the specific Danish requirements, including Arctic surveillance. We are ready to develop a strategic partnership with Denmark and provide opportunities for significant collaboration with Europe’s leading industrial nations.”
The Eurofighter programme has strong reliability in terms of delivery and price. A decision in favour of Eurofighter Typhoon would be a long-term investment into Denmark’s security and defence.
Since entry into service in 2004, more than 350 Eurofighter Typhoons have been delivered to six nations: Germany, the United Kingdom, Italy, Spain, Austria and Saudi Arabia. In December 2012, Oman became the seventh customer and ordered a total of twelve aircraft.
