RDAF gets Litening G4 targeting pods

14 November 2013

The Royal Danish Air Force (RDAF) has become the first international partner to receive the Litening G4: the latest configuration of Northrop Grumman's AN/AAQ-28(V)7 Litening advanced targeting system.

Following a two-week flight test evaluation programme of 25 sorties that verified the pod's performance against the stringent requirements of the RDAF, the Danish Defence Acquisition and Logistics Organisation (DALO) has issued a certificate of acceptance, Northrop Grumman announced on 11 November.

Denmark will receive six Litening G4 pods initially in a package that includes spares, support equipment, training and site activation, with additional systems to follow over the next two months.
