France for the first time will send its fighters to Estonia

In early May, the French Air Force will send a Mirage 4-2000 fighter jet to Estonia to patrol the Baltic airspace to Estonia, reports Look.

At Ämari air base near Tallinn, they will replace the Italian contingent with four Eurofighter Typhoon fighters, which were there from January 10.

Earlier, the French air force participated in the air protection of the Baltic countries six times, but in five cases the unit was deployed in Lithuania at the Siauliai airbase, and in one case - in Poland in Malbork.

The Mirage 2000-5 fighters, which are planned to be sent to Estonia, serve in the squadron Cigognes, based in Eastern France (Luxe).

It is also reported that on May 2, in the Lithuanian Šiauliai, the mission of protecting the airspace is moving from the Danish air line to the F-16M fighters of the Portuguese Air Force.

        Apparently the French are itching to get into the leaders of * world domination *. These are all complexes of the current Macron. He equated himself with Putin now, apparently afraid he wants to catch up with Napoleon

    The enemy of course can not be underestimated. But how "scary" it becomes from this news - "France, Estonia." Well, throws right into a shiver, really out of laughter. Ready to hear: This is NATO.
    I agree - NATO. But where and whom did this natA win? Except for the Papuans. There is danger from the West, no one argues, but in terms of our dependence on finances.

      In general, what can’t be taken away from Westerners is the ability to make advertisements ... where are our such films about Su or MiG?

    Descendants of the Normandy Neman degenerated. Steeper than them are only British submariners, who can’t even find a place to start in a calm (more or less) atmosphere, when no one really beats them ...
