Danish Acting Minister of Defense Troels Lund Poulsen, in his speech to the national broadcaster DR, said that they are considering donating F-16s to Ukraine and evaluating the number.
Acting Minister Poulsen stated that in order to be able to provide F-16 aid to Ukraine, Ukrainian pilots must undergo 6 to 8 months of training in this field and these trainings have started.
Denmark has ordered 27 F-35A aircraft to replace the F-16 jets in its fleet. The new warplanes are expected to enter the Danish Armed Forces inventory from the end of 2023.
For the supply of F-16s to Ukraine, the countries led by the Netherlands and Denmark agreed in May to train Ukrainian pilots for the US-made F-16 warplanes widely used in NATO.
