Belgium Officially Selected F-35

Belgium, eliminating Eurofighter option, has officially chosen the F-35 to replace its F-16 jet.

Belgium became the 13th nation to join the F-35 program.

Earlier in the year, the UK submitted its final Typhoon offer to Belgium. The proposal included 34 Eurofighter Typhoon aircraft.

Lockheed Martin said in a statement:

“Lockheed Martin is honoured by the Belgian government’s selection of the F-35A Lightning II for their future national security needs. We look forward to supporting the U.S. government in delivering the F-35 program to meet the requirements of the Belgian government.

In January this year the US pre-emptively approved a sale of 34 F-35 jets to Belgium. The deal is worth $6.53 billion and is also expected include electronic warfare system and the Autonomic Logistics Information System.

This decision is expected to influence Belgium’s neighbouring countries decision in near future.
