Aircraft currently in service and procurements

F-35A Lightning II:

The Danish government selected the F-35A to replace its fleet of F-16s. When approved by parliament the aircraft can be purchased. Denmark planned to purchase 30 Lightning IIs based on the Lockheed Martin planned production information which can be viewed on the F-35A section of this website.

The planned number of 27 aircraft is listed as opportunity until the contract by the US DoD is awarded.

Lynx:
The last operational helicopters were withdrawn from service on December 15. 2017.
