Estonian army began rearmament with new automatic rifles

The Estonian army began rearmament with new American-made automatic rifles. According to the portal thefirearmblog.com, LMT Defense has confirmed the start of deliveries to Estonia of new assault rifles and grenade launchers.


As the company explained, the Estonian Ministry of National Defense in 2019 chose automatic rifles of the LMT MARS (Modular Ambidextrous Rifle System) family - MLCPS chambered for NATO 5,56 x 45 mm and CQBMWS chambered for NATO 7,62 x as its new assault rifles 51 mm. In addition, M203 grenade launchers were purchased.

The fact that Estonia received the first batch of new automatic rifles produced by the American company Lewis Machine & Tool Company (LMT) was reported in July this year. The first batch consisted of 1500 rifles, which received the official Estonian designation R20 Rahe, of which 1250 R20 Rahe automatic rifles in the standard version, 250 TA-R20 rifles in the "sniper" version and 70 40 mm M203 grenade launchers.

The first presentation of the new weapons took place on July 22 at the military training ground in Männiku.


The R20 Rahe standard rifle is an LMT MLCPS rifle chambered for NATO 5,56 x 45mm, and the TA-R20 is an LMT CQBMWS rifle chambered for NATO 7,62 x 51mm. The first to receive the new rifles will be the Scoutspataljon of the 1st Infantry Brigade of the Estonian Army, stationed in Tapa. Then the 1st and 2nd Infantry Brigades will be fully equipped with rifles. It is planned to equip the Kaistaleit (people's militia), police, border guards and units of the Estonian Ministry of Justice with new weapons.

According to the contract signed in 2019, the Estonian army will receive 16 automatic rifles in 5,56 and 7,62 mm calibers. The cost of the contract is $ 75 million.

Automatic rifles MLCPS (chambered for NATO 5,56 x 45 mm) and CQBMWS (chambered for NATO 7,62 x 51 mm) are variations of the widely used Stoner AR family, but with a patented upper receiver made of a single monolithic structure aluminum, which provides its increased rigidity.

        And who is attacking them? That is, in principle, who needs them. Explain to me, please. But you don't need to talk about the Russian military, okay wink(although this is also another question - how will new automatic rifles help their army in an arch-hypothetical attack on them by Russia lol ) This is even without considering the fact that they are in NATO

          Own population. How long will the "Baltic lions" hold out if the people start "Maidan"? As you know, if the authorities defend themselves with Russian weapons, then it is tyrants who stifle democracy, and if the American ones, it is terrorists who are rowdy and trying to remove a democratic government.

        An ideal option for a small country, the longest possible preservation of neutral status, because in the event of a cut between large countries, nothing will help it, especially some rifles. I do not think that the option of raised arms with LMT MARS (Modular Ambidextrous Rifle System) rifles clamped in them - MLCPS chambered for NATO 5,56 x 45 mm and CQBMWS chambered for NATO 7,62 x 51 mm, is somehow preferable than the option of simply raised hands. By the way, the second option gives more opportunities for the greatest preservation of the lives of citizens of a small state.
        With a neutral status in peacetime, a small country has a great opportunity to "milk" all the opposing sides and provide itself with a sufficiently high standard of living, simply playing on conflicting interests and praying that there would be no war. In the event of a war, a small country simply becomes a military training ground. Estonia with a population of 1,3 million people (including women, children and pensioners), of which 24,7% of the population are Russian-speaking, is still a "tough nut to crack" if you consider the fact that 1,5 million people live in Yekaterinburg alone. The biggest problem for Estonia is that its political elite has a very "small political brain" and complete indifference to the fate of its subjects.

                I wonder what you want from the Estonians. I've read articles about them more than once, but I still don't get it. A small country, but so much talk about it, and what they want from it, or the alignment on the world stage depends.

                Not to be confused with the Estonian Legion, the 20th SS Division. Although horseradish radish is not sweeter. And although Estonia is very small, during the Second World War, there are many black spots, and a lot of cruelty, about which they still do not speak. And they were certainly not angels, both for their own and for others.

                    I wrote that there are dark spots, you can't describe it for a comment. But in short, if I am not mistaken, the 3rd SS Brigade consisted of a heterogeneous composition, not of pure SS troops (of which there were less than 1000), but of various punitive and auxiliary battalions. At the beginning of 1944, the formation of the division had already begun, now this is a purely volunteer Grenadier Waffen SS. And until 44, when the legion stood along the Narova River, and the soldiers who fled to the Soviet side across the river, they were sent to the construction battalion of the Red Army. (My neighbor in the country was one of those).

                      This, yes ... you can always use the Overton window principle - and the Crimean Tatars did not give out all our pilots, and the Balts did not all, but only 99.999% served the Nazis. But the fact remains - the Baltic Nazis, as well as the Ukrainian ones now, in violation of the resolutions of the Nuremberg Tribunal are given glorification

                        Of course, not all, like the Crimean Tatars and the Balts. If we take the Estonians, then the Red Army also had 8 rifle corps. And at the beginning of the war there were NKVD destroyer battalions, and on the other side, the Erna detachment.
                        And if we take the Waffen SS in terms of the quantitative composition, then Hungary, Latvia, and a couple of others are descending. You just have to remember that all of Europe fought against the USSR, except for two countries. And today the situation is the same, and there is no need to be surprised at this.

                        Not Nazism but nationalism, which was and will be. But at the moment it is less than in other countries of Eastern Europe. I will not list, you know. Politicians yell - yes. But people with posters "Russian go home" are not present, and even more so "Moskolyak on Gilyak". Although this may be nothing for you, not a single person died due to the collapse of our country, if in 1993 thousands of people died in the White House in Moscow. I will not say anything about Central Asia, even about Moldova, some of my relatives have not returned from there, they simply do not exist. So everything is learned by comparison. I do not want to praise my own people, but I can’t throw mud at me either, because our large family of about 20 people in a small country did not suffer from the collapse of the Union.

          Father, "20-plus calendars, 30-plus years of service" (his phrase), who defended the Honor of the Motherland, who fought on three continents on business trips, was sent on a "well-deserved" rest due to the fact that he is not like "Pasha-Mercedes" , Yeltsin did not support. Although, when it happened on August 19, 91, he was on another business trip and had nothing to do with what had happened in the country because of the word “nothing.” They kicked out of the army, thanks to the Sverdlovsk drunkard, with the words “Well, you there is enough length of service for a good pension ... "He served not for retirement, but for the Motherland. And he taught me to write the word" Motherland "with a capital letter. And then ...

    Automatic rifles MLCPS (chambered for NATO 5,56 x 45 mm) and CQBMWS (chambered for NATO 7,62 x 51 mm) are variations of the widely used Stoner AR family, but with a patented upper receiver made of a single monolithic structure aluminum, which provides its increased rigidity.
    Firstly, as with all the latest modifications based on the M16, there is a gas outlet on the principle of a gas piston with a short stroke. This ensures the reliability and failure-free operation of mechanisms in case of contamination as in our AK, but at the same time the ease of handling and ergonomics of the M16 remain, which our AK is known to lack.
    And only secondly, the upper part, the receiver itself, is milled from a solid workpiece (heat-treated aviation duralumin), which ensures the same increased rigidity.

    Manufacturer website: https://lmtdefense.com/product/mlcps/

    The machine is very, very good. I would recommend to debaters, comedians and cynics to dash into the shooting range and shoot themselves, or watch the practices. Our weapon geniuses will not give birth to anything except for the next and very late modernization of the AK, and even there the decisions will be distorted from someone from the foreign countries who put their hands on the AK, and even then they cannot scuffle normally.

    Yes, the original M16 has a different system, a direct gas outlet.

    Aircraft aluminum box. In a multi-axis CNC machine, roughly if you take our common alloy D16T from the bulldozer, then you can adjust the receivers / receiver boxes much more than riveting Kalash.

    Accurate shooting is possible even from a water pipe, only it takes longer to teach. An ergonomic, comfortable and accurate mass rifle improves the overall accuracy and efficiency of even a fighter with an average shooting training.

    Army in NATO? - to NATO. There are NATO rifle ammunition, there is a standard for the store, there are standard guides for attaching scopes and other things, and there are rifles that meet these requirements. By and large, and the choice is small, in fact, it is either the M16 and rifles developed on its basis, or the original rifles of Italy, Germany, Britain, the Czech Republic, and of the European standard of Belgium.
    We stopped at the modernized M16, the choice in Europe from the new is only Belgium and the Czech Republic, so in fact there was a choice simply between manufacturers. And Europeans and Americans make their own modifications. And they chose, if not the best, then to put it mildly not the worst option based on the M16.

    Business is correct, by this they support difficult one of the many small arms production, about their own population and economy. Many of us sometimes do not understand this.
    A simple example. We are now transferring 30 T-72MS tanks to Serbia, free of charge. We have thousands of T-72s in storage, there is a plant in St. Petersburg that performs modernization, there is a plant in Belarus that produces sights, there is a plant that produces related control systems - the whole chain works, not only do we preserve technology and support production, but we also support the population and the economy. Having received wages, the worker will go to get a haircut, buy food, pay a mortgage, use utilities and, most importantly, pay for them, etc. It is like a stone thrown into the water, from which wide circles diverge. That is, even a gratuitous transfer at our expenses has a benefit, and with deliveries on credit, even if part of them is written off in the future, there are even more benefits and internal benefits for our own population and economy, and plus foreign policy, somewhere we save, we gain influence, or we change the balance in the direction we need and benefit.
    So there is nothing extraordinary or unique about this US action.
