        It would be better if a mighty "grybauskaite wall" was erected on the border. And there seem to be competent specialists - Yatsenyuk will gladly take yes

    And what is 4km long-range? Look at the Jews ATGM as much as 8km hits ...

      For a manual or portable infantry anti-tank missile system - yes, long-range.

    18 ATGM in any Estonia will not be saved. Therefore, 40 million euros are thrown to the wind.
    Maybe they’ll put the 9K111-1 “Competition” on, it’s going according to requirements. He is armed with a member of NATO Montenegro, for example. Just not sure if it is now mass-produced or not?

    Let them buy what they will do with them, because now it’s not the 41st. In the attack, as in the Second World War, walking chains and rows of tanks to go, no fools.

    plans for the acquisition of long-range anti-tank systems.

    I feel these things are designed for the outskirts .. The State Department loves such multi-pass schemes!
    Russia clearly will not succeed and will have to massacre someone. .. Patience is already at its limit, especially when Bandera begin to seize Orthodox churches and beat parishioners and church workers. Give Russia, Lord of strength and patience, so as not to break loose in a fit of anger, sweeping away everything and everyone in their path .. (the devils in the West are pushing us towards this)
    God bless Russia, how much more can we endure these humiliations brothers Slavs ..?

      The ruling class of Russia is least concerned about the problems of the Kiev Pechersk Lavra. With this, you just need to put up, and throw yourself in the restoration of Aleppo.

    From Russia, from whom else? They lived 50 years under the occupation of the USSR, it is clear that people now have fear.

      The fact of the matter is that Russians have a mutual fear: well, how Estonia will surrender to Russia as in 1940 or 1944 - and then feed these burials for decades !!! No, really! No tanks. Only a massive nuclear missile strike to close the problem once and for all. By the way, not only Estonia is concerned.

        Estonia is not going to capture anyone, no Russia feeds it, it turns out the problem here is only in someone’s inflamed consciousness. Yes, and here the maximum bomb fart strike, because another strike against the country-participant of the military bloc with 1 billion population and 70% of spending on weapons in the world will fail.

    The wonderful distribution system in NATO countries will allow these complexes to be anywhere, even in Ukraine, even in Georgia. And why so few, only 18 complexes?

    The Esston rocket waits a very long time for the aggressor in the sky at Tallin and kills him immediately after three years of waiting!
