      Estonia is larger than Israel in area. If necessary, it is easy to create aviation infrastructure there on 300 combat vehicles.

      Any take-off there is already complex teachings, only the border has taken off too. The Novgorod region is more than all of Estonia.

    US squadron of 12 F-16 fighters ... will also operate at low altitudes
    And then, will Estonian politicians be blamed for the fact that their cows stopped milking again because of “Russian tanks rumbling on the border?”

    Something all these manipulations suggest to the thoughts of the unforgettable Ostap Bender: ".. I will give you a parabellum !! And the West will help us!" (Prepare money, as much as you can),

    Air-to-ground exercises will be held at the central training ground of the Estonian Defense Forces, where combat aircraft will also operate at low altitudes, Interfax reports.

    In 1988, before the liquidation of the MCI of the USSR, I was in charge of 6 military airfields in Estonia and 5 civilian. This is 6 GU MCI of the USSR, I was its Head. Total 11 airfields and airports. All were equipped with ICAO category III. It was supposed to. Those. we Russians shook Estonians equipment worth hundreds of billions of dollars. U.S. Where are they this money, tagged and drunk? And I took every airfield.
    Here is a list of military airfields (there were 36 airplanes on each aviation regiment): Rakvere, Sinalippe, Tapa, Tartu, Hassensalu, Emari. This is how we lived and worked. I have the honor.
