Denmark has deferred a decision on a new fighter until at least 2010, abandoning a plan to make a choice among the Joint Strike Fighter, Super Hornet and Gripen NG this year. The Danish government has also concluded that the country's long-serving F-16s can fly for two more years than originally planned, delaying the arrival of replacements until 2018.The nation may also reduce the number of aircraft to be acquired from the basic planned 48-jet number. The RDAF currently maintains 48 operational F-16s from a 62-aircraft fleet, but defense minister Soren Gade is quoted now as saying that the force will decline to between 25 and 35 operational fighters.
