The Danish government has picked US defense giant Lockheed Martin Corp to supply 27 of its F-35 Lightning fighter jets, TV2 News said on Wednesday, citing unidentified sources.

Denmark's decision has been closely watched, as several other nations also have to decide whether to replace their aged warplanes with Lockheed Martin's brand new F-35 or choose cheaper, older-generation planes such as Super Hornets.

An expert group formed by the Danish Ministry of Defense last month concluded that the F-35 Lightning was a better option than Eurofighter's Typhoon or Boeing Co's F/A-18E/F Super Hornet.
