And by rail: In Britain, presented the logistics of the transfer of forces and means to Estonia

46
The British military department reported on the logistics of the transfer of forces and assets for future maneuvers into the territory of the Baltic. The British military will be deployed at the Estonian military base of Tapa. It is there that you need to move personnel and military equipment from bases in the United Kingdom.


And by rail: In Britain, presented the logistics of the transfer of forces and means to Estonia


It is noted that, despite problems with railway logistics, part of the cargo will be sent to Estonia precisely by rail. The train will proceed through the Channel Tunnel, then through France, Belgium, the Netherlands, Germany and Poland. After that, the trains will have to change the wheelsets during the transition to the "Soviet" railway track, which, as you know, is wider than the "European" one. After that, equipment will be delivered to Estonian territory through Lithuania and Latvia.

In addition, the British will deliver personnel and equipment to Estonia by air, by sea and by road.



A few comments by British users on the Department of Defense message about plans for the transfer are below.

User Stuart MacDonald:

It will be an “epic” operation. Interestingly, someone will tell us the numbers for the transfer and the cost of this transfer?

Robert Campbell:

It seems to me that the term Rapid ("fast" - approx. VO) is hardly suitable for such exercises ...

Meanwhile, there were reports of loading armored vehicles onto transport ships, including Tanks Abrams, 2nd Armored Brigade of the US Army, in one of the ports of the Netherlands.


We are talking about rotation events, during which other American units will arrive in Europe for an 9-month period.

    Tanks are a drava of war, okay, the Estonians don't feel sorry for the Britons, but their crews are also visible.

      They have these firewood - an armful of brushwood. Neither warm, nor cook food.

          Much more serious. They will move all their 227 tanks to Estonia and "rush" straight to Moscow. There will be "cruel" revenge for the Skripals' cat.

            It seems that these tanks are destined to stay in Estonia forever, because the removal of this scrap metal from Estonian marshes will be insanely costly and completely inconsistent with the concept of common sense, and there are no tasks or conditions to use.

              In England, it’s not profitable to hand over metal, you have to pay for utilization, but in Estonia, on the contrary, the guys will quickly cut it and have enough for a drink. 60 tons of good metal, you can walk decently.

                Estonians clearly do not know how to quickly "cut" composite armor (by the way, in general, there are few people and enterprises in the world that know how to do this), so we will look at their successes. laughing

          Previously, there were partisans, and quite skillfully disrupted the supply of Hitler's troops .. But now, there are satellites and precision weapons. All this "scope", British science fiction writers, will turn into zilch.

        And you just need to change everything at once !! Because here it will not be possible to "reform" in parts .. then the existing supply will be disrupted ..
        Imagine that we ourselves would decide to change the track width .. First we must break everything old and do it in a new way .. We won’t be able to replace somewhere old worn out with new ones of a different width .. with pieces ..))

    The train will proceed through the Channel Tunnel, then through France, Belgium, the Netherlands, Germany and Poland. After that, the trains will have to change the wheelset
    By the end of the exercise (kidding)? The shaved people would have sat on their islands and quietly drank five o'clock without puzzling how and at what cost to transfer their equipment to the Baltic states. But the corporate sense of "solidarity" is making a fuss.

    They strive closer to St. Petersburg and Moscow, though for another dozen, a hundred kilometers, the territory of Lithuania and Latvia did not suit. Apparently they want to annoy Russia more. Crazy. "Finish the game" someday and your island will drown. fool angry
