Greece is planning to purchase 25 or 30 Lockheed Martin F-35s to replace the oldest F-16C/Ds.
“Beyond the upgrade of the F-16 fighter jets, we are in the process of selecting a new plane for Greece, so we can gradually move to the new generation of aircraft,” said Greek defence minister Evangelos Apostolakis.
Vice Admiral Mathias Winter, director of the Pentagon’s F-35 joint programme office, who told Congress that sales of F-35 jets could be expanded to include five new countries (Greece, Romania, Poland, Singapore and Spain).
