Latvia purchases Israeli Spike missile systems


Bergmanis stated that it is "historical a contract for the National Armed Forces (NAF) and one of the largest procurements in the defense industry, comparable only to the project of mechanization of the ground forces. " The Minister also expressed hope that Latvian entrepreneurs will be able to participate in the implementation of the agreement.

Purchase of equipment will make us much stronger, and we will have to reckon with our forces, especially those who want to check them. Similar anti-tank systems use 28 countries, and this is one of the most powerful types weapons in the world,

    Latvia is the poorest country in the Baltics. Where does the money come from, Zin? Why do you need this? By the way. This weapon is more serious than the Dart.

            Let's be honest and confess. We won’t go. For the standard of living is higher, freedom of movement. Yes, and propaganda does its job. I have a friend, though Tallinn works in the port of Estonia. He is pleased with everything.

              Well, if you want everything honestly, please tell us what their standard of living will be after 2020, when not only the European Union will stop giving them billions of euros every year (subsidies), but they will also have to pay for old loans, and payments for which too a couple of euro lard a year?
              that is, subsidies will disappear and loans will have to begin to be paid.
              and what will happen to them then with a standard of living (which is not so hot anyway, which is why all young animals are dumped in Germany, Ireland, England).

                And honestly I’ll tell you. Our people will drive you there. Investments from Russia are in second place, if not first. It’s easier to open a “business” there than to bend and bend you at home.

                  and here it’s not true, there are articles on the network about how Russian citizens tried to open a business there.
                  although the fact that there are investments from the Russian Federation there is a fact. but investments and subsidies are not the same thing. invest in order to make a profit, that is, in order to earn money in those territories, and not to feed the population.

                If we consider the European Union as "one big country" - and with open borders it is quite logical - then you have a simple analogy: young people are leaving Uryupinsk in Russia too.

      Yes, where did they buy the funeral from, the main thing is that our people in the Latvian army (and they are there) would allow our reconnaissance to these missiles, so that they could touch the GOS with their own hands.

    As I understand it, starting to be afraid is worth us immediately. But only in such cases the only question is always tormenting - and who needs you (except the United States for tension at the border) and what do you have so much value?

        Only yesterday, R. Babayan, one "liberal" argued that trade with the Baltic states is beneficial to us in the first place. It turns out that they deliver cars to us apart from sprats? (though he didn’t say which ones) and we ship cargoes through their sea terminals, but at the same time he kept silent that Russia had already reduced the use of these terminals and would soon refuse them altogether.

            They want to live, they won’t and try ... But seriously, about the slowness, I recalled the story of a friend (no longer with us ... the earth in fluff) about his fighters. In the PAP they filonil and waved their spades with complete detachment, but in the first Chechnya he had to get under the 82nd with some of his fillers. So, they dug themselves up with everything from horrible to bad to bayonets with their heads at the speed of moles. So they want to live, be quick ...

          Aiming at a target using a television channel is a rather interesting idea, in my opinion such a principle was applied in some rockets to the air surface. Conventional ATGM from a long distance is directed to the tank circuit, it’s difficult to get into any particular part. And on a television channel, you can adjust the impact or get from the top to less protected areas ...

    What are you blind. Clogged up the whole topic of adhesions, to emigrate to you or Europeans, but the clinic misses most of the comments I read. Latvia is an independent state, and it decides what and where to buy.
    And as for the spikes, I remember how the Armenians looked at them ... yes, they just looked at how it flies and hits the target)))) and 15-20 missiles flew in total))) there would be 1000 - 2500 missiles ... and they just there.

    I remember that in the 80s there was a big scandal in Japan, with the resignation of a member of the government for receiving a huge bribe from the American company Lockheed, which supplied its aircraft to Japan. India has also been seen more than once in giving bribes for the supply of arms to it. Life has shown that the military-industrial complex of any state is a hotbed of international corruption.
