ContractsLockheed Martin, Boeing and Airbus are bidding on a tender offer worth an estimated $5.5 billion to provide Denmark’s military with as many as 30 fighter jets, Reuters reported Monday.

Teis Jensen and Ole Mikkelsen report that Danish officials will deliberate on the bids ahead of the award in mid-2015.
