    The Danish government plans to purchase 27 new US Lockheed Martin F-35 Lightning II.

    STOCKHOLM (Sputnik) — The Danish government plans to purchase 27 new US Lockheed Martin F-35 Lightning II, also known as the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter jets, the Danish TV2 broadcaster said on Wednesday, citing unnamed sources.

    Earlier in the day, the local Denmark Radio (DR) station said the F-35s have been recently mentioned in Denmark as the most preferred jets to replace the currently used military aircraft.

    The cost of the F-35 fighter is reportedly estimated at $107.5 million and the total amount for their purchase could cost between $307.4 billion and $460.9 billion.

    The F-35 is a single-seat, single-engine strike fighter with stealth technology.
