Denmark has borrowed several unmanned aircraft from the Dutch armed forces. Because of spare parts supply problems within the Danish army, Denmark has been given two so-called Raven systems – each consisting of three unmanned aircraft and a ground station – from the Netherlands. The systems will be borrowed for half a year, when the Danish supply problems are expected to be resolved.
“Currently, all our Raven systems are being used in Afghanistan,” Flemming Diehl, a spokesman for the Danish Defence Acquisition and Logistics Organisation, told The Copenhagen Post. “We had an urgent need for these Raven systems due to a lack of spare parts.”
