Conservatives will have more fighters and more training

UNITED states ambassador in Denmark believes that we should invest in more combat aircraft. She is right, think Conservative.

Denmark should listen to the american request to buy more fighter jets and increase the guarding in the Arctic.

It takes defense Niels Flemming Hansen (conservative).

- first, we have long believed that we have bought a few fighter aircraft. And second, it is absolutely true that we need a buildup in the Arctic.

- The guard we have up there right now, reminds most of all of a coastguard over by Varde, says Niels Flemming Hansen.

at Least five of the 27 new Danish F-35 fighter aircraft must stand permanently in the UNITED states.

According to the american ambassador in Denmark, Carla Sands,, Denmark should strengthen the defense with, among others, several fighter planes, she says in an interview with Jyllands-Posten.

the Call comes nine days before the Nato's big summit in London. Carla Sands points out that it is Nato who is looking for more fighters.

According to Niels Flemming Hansen should money from the economic room for manoeuvre is used on the defense - and specifically at the training of pilots.

- the Pilots of F-16 aircraft have today 180 training hours per year. When they get new aircraft, they come down on something that is about 68 training hours.

- I'm nervous about the future pilots when a high level as our current. And we must just ask ourselves whether we can be aware of our allies, that we do not provide aircraft and trained pilots enough, he says.

Carla Sands also believes that Denmark should meet the three-year-old promises to strengthen the defense and surveillance in the Arctic.

Here regard the Sands to a report from the ministry of Defence on tasks in the Arctic from 2016.
