Estonian Defense Ministry receives a batch of Javelin anti-tank guided missiles

Estonia received the next batch of anti-tank guided missiles ATGM Javelin. This was reported by the United States Embassy in Estonia.


Reportedly, the delivery of 128 Javelin missiles took place in February, but they reported about it only now. It is clarified that the missiles were delivered under a larger contract signed by the Estonian Defense Investment Center and the US Department of Defense.

The cargo arrived is a continuation of building up the defensive potential of Estonia, which will strengthen the strategic integration of our countries and ensure interoperability between NATO allies and partners. Javelin man-portable anti-tank missile systems are part of an ongoing co-financing partnership (...)

- said in a statement.

According to the bmpd blog, it is assumed that the delivered 128 Javelin ATGMs are the final delivery within the framework of the intergovernmental agreement concluded in November 2014 for the supply of 350 ATGMs, 80 portable launchers (CLUs) (with an additional 40), 102 power supply and cooling units , 16 training complexes, 102 practical missiles, as well as sets of spare parts, technical literature, TCB and training and maintenance services.

The cost of the agreement is $ 55 million, of which 33 are paid by the American side.

        Yes, they are already gnawing .. We ignore the ports and don’t buy sprats with milk .. Oh, I remember the Balts, during the collapse of the USSR, came out on top in the export of non-ferrous metal in the world .. They immediately plundered them and then started Russia (or rather, our entrepreneurs are "the future of Russia" ) to rob .. They stole everything from themselves, but in Russia the military-industrial complex, etc. Thanks to those who work in design bureaus and other military-industrial complex .. We were waiting for this turmoil to pass and their developments will not be sold to the west, but will be erected specifically for the defense of Russia-USSR .. So you need to put a monument on Red Square, next to Minin-Pozharsky !
        Well, I let a tear go again .. crying wink

        please do not worry about Estonia.
        An Estonian teacher receives 1200 euros after tax, in Russia - well, if 300.
        Estonians have modern government, education, and healthcare.
        By the way, migration to them is already positive, even with Finland.
        Russia will have to grow to the level of Estonia for a very long time

          The population of the EU countries is approximately 447 million people. The population of Estonia is 1 million 320 thousand people. Estonia lives in the EU as in that saying: with the world on a thread - a naked shirt .... subsidies, subsidies, subventions .... there is nothing of its own. You can live like that, of course, but I personally feel ashamed to live like that and I don’t want to grow to such a level.

      Well, those two times when Russian (Soviet) tanks entered Estonia (the Baltic states), it should be considered separately:

      - first time, with the consent of Estonia itself, the outcome of the political process between the USSR and Estonia;
      - second time, as a result of the liberation of the Estonian SSR from the Nazi invaders.

      Which of these two scenarios does Estonia want to repeat now? wink

                I apologize, confused with the white-covers. I admit a mistake.
                But even so, they were used to solve key problems in strategic areas. But not nationwide. Although for their period they may have played a key role.
                As far as I remember, they had discipline at the height.

              If you accuse the Baltic countries of cowardice, I gave you an example of the opposite.
              It’s very stupid to write that everyone will be scared and run away when they see a Russian tank.
              You can be sure that there will be enough people to prevent a repeat of 1940. I do not understand Russian hatred of the Baltic states, but we did not come to you to kill your people, you went to us.

                  Do you say bandits?
                  In 1941, before the war, 15 people were deported from Latvia, mainly intellectuals, army and police officers and socially active people. 000% of them did not survive.
                  In 1949, about 100 people were deported, including 000 children. Mostly farmers. Expelled 10% of the population.
                  If, in 19419, having left Latvia, the Chekists had not left a prison full of cruelly tortured corpses of innocent people, perhaps there would have been no Latvian SS legion.
                  I wrote about Latvia here, because I am a Latvian, in Estonia everything was similar.

                      The Baltic states, like the rest of Eastern Europe, receive more from the EU than they invest in its budget. In the case of Latvia, this is about 6% of all income.
                      Our countries live off export, I can say that, for example, the IT export sector in Latvia has long outgrown transit revenues.
                      If you believe Kiselyov's nonsense that we live only on EU grants, I am sorry for you.

                1) Latvia and Estonia did not exist until 1918, and their population and territories are territories of the Russian Empire, in which both nations were formed, and the states were formed as a result of the policies of the victors in the First World War.
                2) Modern state formations within the EU and NATO Latvia and Estonia inherit from the regimes (quasi-states) that collaborated with the German Nazi regime, were an integral part of it, were defeated in WW2. Estonian and Latvian sonderkommandy destroyed during WW2 civilians in the USSR on the orders of the Nazis, i.e. committed war crimes, resisted the forces of the anti-Hitler coalition. This is our common problem.
                3) There is no "Russian hatred" for the "Baltic". There are statements by individuals who represent only themselves.
                By the way, your Nick causes me strong suspicions - this is the Latvian Lithuanian name Vytautas. At the same time, you write competently enough in Russian.

    The delivery of 128 Javelin rockets was reportedly back in February, however, they reported it only now.
    What, no one else joked about this ?! I am the first! Tol-l-to-ko-o seyychaass.

    In addition to jokes, a javelin can easily destroy any equipment of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation.

      Russian equipment will not be introduced into Estonia (and into Latvia), therefore it will not be destroyed. We need to think now how to dispose of this unnecessary equipment in the future: it will not be possible to store it on the farm for a long time, this is not a "TT" and not a "schmeiser" ... Problem.

    And where did these Chukhites gather with them, with these Javelins. Do boobies think that someone will attack them as in WWII? Stupid and naive, well, they’re worse. And they could spend money on something sensible.

      Representation, H has problems with his head, unless he spends on sensible things. No, he’ll buy himself a rattle.

    There is no money for either treatment or social programs. Only for MO do not cut costs.

      please do not worry about Estonia.
      An Estonian teacher receives 1200 euros after tax, in Russia - well, if 300.
      Estonians have modern government, education, and healthcare.
      By the way, migration to them is already positive, even with Finland.
      Russia will have to grow to the level of Estonia for a very long time

    “Javelin” missile is not guided, as it is written in this article, but homing. The concept of “fired - forgot” ... the operator of this ATGM is not exposed to return fire and should not completely keep the aiming mark on the target until it is defeated. Cool weapon, but fabulously expensive ...

    The cost of the agreement is $ 55 million, of which 33 are paid by the American side.

    And you say boobies! Try to buy potatoes in the market.

      Weak kickbacks, even on a scanty, sitting on EU subsidies, state. Now it’s clear why,
      The US military budget has come close to a trillion.

    Such as the local Estonian, probably, left the farm, but the farm didn’t. They are firmly convinced that the earth's axis exactly passes through the native pigsty. Well, hallelujah ....

    The Balts look with horror at Ukraine, Georgia, all sorts of DPR and LPR, Givi, Motorol and cross themselves - "it's so good that we managed to join NATO."

      1) You misinterpret events. The first two states were formed only thanks to Moscow, the other two and South Ossetia, Abkhazia - thanks to official Tbilisi and Kiev, which incorrectly sold their independence.
      2) This means only one thing: NATO will not be soon.

        You can interpret it as you like. Those who joined NATO - those in peace and stability, and those who have not joined and live next to Russia - are taking away territories from that war.
        This means that NATO will now definitely be there, everyone saw the need for its existence.
