Lockheed News



Lockheed Martin Statement on Denmark F-35 Selection Lockheed Martin is pleased that Denmark has reaffirmed its commitment to the F-35 program with the down select of the F-35 in this fair and open competition. Denmark is a longtime partner of Lockheed Martin and we are proud of our strong record of supporting its national security requirements. The F-35 Lightning II will help ensure Denmark’s national security, and also positions Danish industry to capture long-term work throughout the life of the program. We remain committed to assist the U.S. government and F-35 Joint Program Office to support Denmark’s future fighter and other aircraft requirements. Additionally, we will continue to work with Danish Industry on F-35 production throughout the life of the program. The projected industrial opportunities with the F-35 will bring long term economic benefits to Denmark for decades to come.

The Eurofighter is the typical story of any vehicle produced in Europe. Great ride, handling, exceptional engineering, and sexy looks. Hope you have pockets and patience because she's going to be an expensive bride. Sounds like my Saab. 10 million more than the Rhino and 30 more than the JSF. Ouch.
