USA relocates MQ-9 Reaper drones to Estonia

The United States will deploy drone drone in Estonia. According to the press service of the Estonian military department, UAVs MQ-9 Reaper will be moved to Estonia from Poland.


According to the data provided by the Ministry of Defense of Estonia, the American MQ-9 Reaper drones, performing both reconnaissance and strike functions, for the first time in stories will be placed at the Estonian military base Emari. Relocation of drones from Poland should take place in the near future.

We are pleased to welcome our allies to Emari. Drones are a hot topic in the modern world, and their introduction in aviation culture lays a new foundation

- declared in the Ministry of Defense of the country.

According to the explanations provided by the Estonian military, drones will be relocated along with personnel and auxiliary equipment and will remain in Estonia until the end of July. The decision to relocate was taken jointly by the US and Estonian military.

This decision was made by the US Air Force along with the Estonian Defense Forces. The equipment, together with the personnel, is relocated in connection with the repair at the airbase in the Polish Miroslawiec, where drones are permanently located

- said in a statement.

It is possible that drones will remain in Estonia for a longer time, and it is possible that UAVs will be deployed in Estonia on an ongoing basis.

    And who constantly threatens whom? I would understand if Russia placed something like that in Cuba or Venezuela ..
    Although in fact in the United States riots and countries of China, Russia, etc. We should have adapted our squadrons to the shores of the United States in case the situation gets out of control (as the United States usually does) .. Well, let's see and check our air defense system ..

      Rather, we will simply once again express our strong concern, and the drones will continue to stand where they stood, like THAAD in Korea or Aegis Ashore in Romania.

        There is something to answer and Russia will not be particularly promoted to the arms race this time ..
        These UAVs, in principle, are not as scary as they are painted here and in the west .. hi

          It’s even good that in Emari. I lived there. 40 km from Tallinn. Iskander reach out - that of Kaliningrad, while from Peter. And without a UAV control center - scrap. This is in case of a small mess. Yes, attention is required. Ears on top, EW ready. You look, and they get what ... laughing

          2020 is really some special year. Events are one after another: either the pandemic, America is shaking, or Gazprom has begun to dismantle the GTS pipes. What will happen next?
          Gazprom has begun dismantling pipes for gas transit through Ukraine, said the head of the Ukrainian GTS operator, Sergey Makogon.
          In an interview with OilPoint, Makogon agreed that “the revenue line called transit completely disappears.”
          “The fact that Gazprom began to dismantle pipes on its territory through which gas is delivered to the border with Ukraine is a problem, but we cannot particularly influence it,” he said.

        On the contrary, I think it’s good - having them at our side will quickly reveal many of their weaknesses, train electronic warfare forces, track their radio control lines from stationary positions, etc.
        But most importantly, they can fly up to our borders, and "accidentally" collide with our some cheap drone, which can be targeted from the ground by our operators. So two or three expensive UAV crashes and the concert will be over - I think so.

            Nothing of the kind - it will take off from airfields near our territory, and if it conducts radio communications, then we don’t care where the control center for these UAVs is. The main thing is to understand how they are managed, to reveal teams and their actions in a critical situation. This will facilitate the fight with the American UAV in other regions of the world. Judge for yourself, it is one thing to study their work in Syria, and another thing is at hand.

                And so what? Satellite radio at a higher level was opened in Lourdes, but here is some kind of drone. In general, it’s all muddy, it’s enough to open the frequency of work and then the EW technique is a matter of course.

            Do not scare people with such ideas - the third world will not start with drones, so their solo flights are unlikely to be considered an intelligence sign to determine the start of a nuclear war.

Even the Turks have given us without any idiology about the need to release massively shock drones! We are shouting that these drones are old and junk, and we ourselves are not able to set up a mass production of the like! "Old stuff and rubbish" in Syria, equipment is massively destroyed, showing that the approach of our bureaucrats to shock drones as an unnecessary toy is criminally wrong! !!
