55
The major international military exercises Furious Hammer, during which parts of the armed forces of Estonia, Great Britain, Denmark and Italy intend to work out the interaction as part of the 1 Infantry Brigade of the Estonian Defense Forces, began at the Latvian жиdaži training ground, the press service of the headquarters of the Estonian Defense Forces reports


Furious Hammer. Estonia starts military exercises in Latvia


The teachings will last ten days and will include three phases. During the first 18-20 in April, units and military equipment move from Estonia to Latvia.

The second, active phase will begin on April 21, during which the reconnaissance battalion soldiers will work with their NATO allies on combat operations at the company and platoon level. The third phase will take place on the last two days, when training battles will begin at the battalion level and the anti-tank and anti-air battalions of the 1 Infantry Brigade will participate in them.

Combat shooting at the battalion level is a difficult part of the exercises. You have to find a balance between tactical elegance and safety
- noted the general commander of the exercises, captain Vladimir Kolotygin from the 1-th Infantry Brigade.

Furious Hammer maneuvers take part Tanks Challenger 2, CV-9035 infantry fighting vehicles, Warrior and Sisu XA armored personnel carriers. The Air Force is represented by UH64, R-44 helicopters and Eurofighter Typhoon fighters. In total, about 1300 military personnel and members of the Estonian Kaitseliit volunteer paramilitary organization participate in the exercises, Interfax reports.

                    Enchanting, maybe you are the enemy of Russia? After all, the leader is not eternal, as is the country's course towards the abyss. everything in this world is changing. Maybe you will be shot in the future as an enemy of Russia. Do not consider such an option, on time "change your shoes"? yes Does it not seem to you that the enemy or not the enemy, so to speak, is some kind of flavoring, which side to look at.

                        Russia doesn’t give a damn who we are, it outlived both the white and the red, they all considered themselves patriots and wanted the best for their homeland, they simply understood how “better” they were in different ways, which is why you call me an enemy of Russia in vain, if I’m an enemy, it’s not Russia, but yours, the enemy of your views and worldview. So, unfortunately. For sim and say goodbye ...

        On the ruins it seems and will train. Judging by the name, this is a training on breaking through brick and concrete walls with "furious" sledgehammers. It is also possible to beat the tank with a sledgehammer, because they had already trained to dig anti-tank ditches ... laughing

    They always have some kind of "Angry Hedgehog", "fiery tornado", "indestructible diarrhea" .... and everything is so invincible and prickly ...))))
    The names of the teachings they know how to compose perfectly ...
    I recalled the real operation - "Eagle Claw" - but there is a whole story, you can read it if you are curious, ..... in the middle it’s very funny .....
    In short: - During a super-secret operation where a group of fur seals HIDDEN penetrates the territory of another country, what are they doing? - That's right - they set fire to four of their helicopters, a fuel truck on the highway, and try to catch up with one motorcyclist .... they don’t catch up with the motorcyclist, they throw secret documents in the burned equipment and looping tear asses towards the border.
    what can I say - EAGLES!

      "Tactical grace." This is when the enemy is so fascinated by your graceful movement across the battlefield that from the delight at the sight of these magnificent movements, the lightness and beauty of the soldiers jumping in the trenches - they are suffocated by the tears of delight and he cannot shoot. crying
      But then I went too far, of course, then the enemy should also be one of those in the lace unloading with a pink gun .. lol
