The number of yearly conscripts has been increased to 7,500 and the mandatory conscription period went from four to 11 months

That’s the headline from the new defense agreement between a majority of parliamentary parties

  • Mandatory conscription has been extended to include women from 2027. 
  • 190 billion DKK will be invested in the armed forces in the next decade. 
  • 48 billion DKK to establish a combat-ready unit of 6,000 soldiers by 2028. The unit will be a heavy brigade and represent “the fist of the army.” 
  • 47 billion DKK will be invested in land-based air defense, faster build-up of anti-submarine capabilities, and advanced acquisition of maritime close-in air missiles. 

Since they abolished the Hawk system twenty years ago, Denmark doesn’t have ground-based air defense. 25 billion DKK will be invested into a new air defense system.
