Eurofighter will be one of four aerospace companies who will be competing for the contract to replace the Danish F-16’s. Other candidates include Lockheed Martin with the JSF, Boeing’s F/A-18 Super Hornet and the Saab’s Gripen.

The competition that was cancelled in 2010 due to financial pressures.
