Tallinn held a parade of the Estonian Defense Forces, dedicated to the centenary of the independence of the republic.


The ceremony was attended by about 1100 military personnel and about 100 units of military equipment, including Tanks Challenger-II and Warrior infantry fighting vehicles from the NATO battle group, purchased by Estonia from South Korea, K-9 self-propelled howitzers, mobile bridge-shooting equipment from Ukraine.

The US Patriot’s anti-anti-aircraft and anti-missile system was shown delivered to the country the day before.

All branches of the armed forces of Estonia were represented at the parade. Military personnel of the already formed 1 th infantry brigade and the formed 2 th infantry brigade of the Defense Forces passed.



We also passed banner groups from Finland, France, Georgia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Sweden, Ukraine and the USA.

Over the Freedom Square, where the ceremony was held, helicopters and aircraft of the Estonian Air Force and Border Guard flew over, as well as two UH-60 Black Hawk helicopters, based on the Emari airbase near Tallinn, three Italian Air Force Eurofighter fighters and two Danish Air Force fighters based in Lithuanian Shaulia -sixteen. Completed the span aviation squadron of eight US Air Force F-16 fighters.

Defense Forces Commander General Riho Terras (Riho Tarras) at the opening of the parade said that the presence of NATO troops in Estonia is the main factor of Russia's military deterrence

      It’s been a decade since the landing on the landing. It turns out they don’t drink, but eat dry food from NATO. That's right, prepare your stomach for war.

      Well, so they consider themselves an integral part of the alliance. Roughly speaking, the more well-trained and well-armed the armed forces of the Baltic states will be, the greater the outfit of forces will be necessary to defeat them this time. And secondly, the combined detachments of these states regularly appear in hot spots and the level of their training and armament affects the survival of soldiers in real databases.

        There was an article here the other day that the Lithuanians more than doubled their contingent in Afghanistan. So, the Estonians also increased and brought up to 46 fighters. Not so little, considering that they are driving primarily advanced aircraft guides and intelligence through these internships .
        Regarding your first thought that the Estonian infantry is an integral part of NATO, this is absolutely true. I would also add that in recent years they have significantly increased their overall combat readiness (both in terms of armament and mobility readiness, and in working out interaction directly on the battlefield with their senior comrades in arms). But only a small remark ... no one here is interested, throws more and more hats, but they threaten to erase the Baltic states with Iskanders. Although what kind of Iskanders might be, if in response we we’ll run into a retaliatory nuclear strike, which means that the balance of conventional weapons in Europe is still as important as in the USSR.

          Well, of course, we’ll leave hats, iskanders, take shovels and let's go. Yes, if anything, everything will fly and the Iskander will not help here, and after one PC-24 “Yars” of 500 Kt, we will no longer need to fly to Mars. States are unlikely to risk receiving an answer or hello to the ICBMs, for the sake of saving a small democracy, they will soon help to divide more. These republics are not of interest to the Russian Federation, as they were never rich and strong, they were simply always put on the forefront .....

      The language does not turn to call it a parade. Building zero, it is absent, from the word AT ALL.
      And Americans, why invite them? Well, they don’t have such a tradition, they don’t go marching, namely they go like prisoners of war.
      I looked for a comparison of the Americans in Kiev at the parade, again "prisoners of war" and not military men marching proudly.
      Not to say that I approve of the policy of Russia wholeheartedly but to see that, even though the former Soviet Union, these calculations are very dumb. Even when I watched the Armenian calculations at the Kremlin parade, there wasn’t such a feeling. The Soviet past was a lot in common, but here strangers , whatever one may say, but strangers, strangers in all these Americans.
      Pysy I myself am a participant in more than one parade (state level) and I know what sweat and labor is given to the drill.

          If you thought that it is not needed, then why not spend it (as they say your right)
          but why spend a parody of a military parade? and not he?
          Here Estonians are conducting but not marching, and why the Americans are not clear at all.
          From a political point of view, it’s clear, but in terms of the parade, they don’t have a drill place there, they would ride on their own equipment.
          I personally do not think that drill training is so important. But I served in the special forces, they came and began to choose, they said they were being transferred to airborne troops, and with 5 guys from our company I would take parachute courses.
          But it turned out we were brought in to prepare for the parade, at first we were selected from the units by growth, then most of them were eliminated. I didn’t march badly but got into the reserve, many guys got varcecel in preparation for the parade because they were too zealous. They transferred me to the main convoy of our troops with a height of 187 cm, the fifth line is the fifth soldier. They walked a little more than a month in the hot summer, the Major General personally watched. It came to the point that the uniform was all wet, sometimes 8 hours a day with small respite walked.
          Why? So as not to be dishonored by the whole world, our troops were the only ones who put out two boxes exclusively from conscripts. The rest of the troops were officers, contractors, cadets, but we received thanks from the main parade in the very first rehearsal. On return we received medals for participating, and 10 days out of turn and then they were invited to participate in the days of the cities. I didn’t like to tour while walking, I didn’t call in special forces. But they also sent me to the republic-level exercises as approximate. Our unit was not considered the most alert but our guys took first place ahead of the elite units of the troops. And then many of our officers went to train a special newly formed unit. But this is another story
          You know, if you’ve already taken it, you need to do it with conscience, so that the people are proud of their army, at least when they see it at the parade.
          When we got out of the parade square and loaded onto cars, the men hugged, the women cried with the words “we sleep peacefully thanks to you” “my son also serves” “God bless you” The army should inspire hope for its people, and not make a laugh of itself .IMHO

      Forest is an essential pillar for the Estonian economy. Forestry brings income to the state treasury, and the industry itself employs thousands of people. Meanwhile, according to an analysis by the University of Tartu, over the past 20 years, 37% of coniferous forests have been cut down, that cannot but disturb environmental organizations.

      The latter are sure that the state has stepped aside from the principles of the careful use of forest resources. And precisely for this reason, as early as the middle of last month, about a hundred people protested at the building of the Ministry of the Environment.

    A parade of the Estonian Defense Forces was held in Tallinn.
    Tanks Challenger-II and BMP Warrior - UK.
    K-9 self-propelled guns from South Korea
    Batra and BMP from the ruins.
    And also:
    two US helicopters
    three fighters Eurofighter Italian Air Force
    two Danish air force fighter F-16
    US Air Force F-16 Squadron
    And the cannon fodder of Estonia itself in the form of the 1st Infantry Brigade.


    Invincible armada))) Especially when the NATO forces are almost more than the Estonians themselves))
    the presence of NATO troops in Estonia is the main factor in Russia's military containment

    Ahahah))) I would have watched as this evil Baltic lapdog starts to empty her intestines, seeing the Russian army heading in their direction))

    And what are they famous for? Your victories? I didn’t hear something.
