Georgia intends to purchase modern weapons

The Georgian Ministry of Defense has drawn up a new plan to strengthen the country's defense capability for 2021. According to local media reports, within the framework of this plan, the Georgian military is planning significant purchases of modern weapons.


And about. Defense Minister Irakli Garibashvili, speaking at the parliamentary hearings, said that the United States will continue to be Georgia's strategic partner, therefore, arms purchases are planned, accordingly, "in cooperation with a strategic partner."

Among the planned purchases is an additional batch of American Javelin anti-tank systems to strengthen anti-tank defense. In addition, the Georgian Ministry of Defense plans to purchase shock and reconnaissance drones, but nothing has been reported about the number and country of supply of drones.

Another task for the Georgian military for 2021 is strengthening air defense. Within the framework of this program, cooperation with Israel will continue, which is modernizing Georgia's air defense.

On October 1 this year, Garibashvili announced the beginning of the transition of the Georgian army to weapon NATO standard. The country's defense forces began to receive American 249 mm M5,56 light machine guns, and they are also re-equipping with M-4 automatic rifles.

Note that the American Javelin anti-tank complex is already in service with the Georgian army, earlier it was reported about the supply of 410 missiles and 72 ATGM launchers.

      Now, heavy US aircraft carriers are cheap. The United States announced the creation of light aircraft carriers and their replacement of some of the heavy aircraft carriers. But the good does not disappear.
      At the beginning of the 20th century, they said: "If you want to ruin a small country, give it a cruiser." "Gerald Ford" Georgia!

      How angry you are belay They will finish themselves off. I communicate with a young guy from Georgia, at the moment he went to live in Estonia, when he was going to, I asked him why, judging by the stories of our tourists, the answer struck me a little, I will not quote literally, but about-at night they can undress if they are well dressed, they can stuff their face even if you are with a girl, there is nothing to live on, despite the fact that he worked as a croupier in a casino and drove a 140m Mercedes (S class). He is going to join the Estonian army.

      In Georgia, ordinary people have not heard of Georgia ... probably they will not find it on the map ... an ordinary banana republic somewhere far away.

        And in Russia, probably, few people know where Lesotho or Malawi are located. For the average American, Georgia is as abstract a country as it is for the average Russian in Lesotho and Malawi.

        Poor Trump has always had a difficult time with geography ...
        Probably, when he was told about Georgia, he thought that we were talking about the American state, the beauty of the Confederation.
        That way, St. Petersburg can get something out of the state.
        They will decide that this is a town in Alabama, on the Mississippi, the birthplace of Tom Sawyer ... laughing

      Now in the know. After the panic in the states, when (08.08.08/XNUMX/XNUMX) the US media reported that Russia had invaded Georgia. They had to explain to the population that Georgia is not a state, but a country in the Caucasus))

    Let's not quibble, but the M249 is not an American machine gun, even though the Swiss make it in the USA.

      And what is there to find fault with ... Georgians will gallop to Tbilisi with this machine gun ... the sight of a Georgian with a machine gun at the ready is of course formidable ... the fighting spirit is really weak ... when a strong enemy is pressed, they run ... only his heels sparkle.

      Suddenly two men flashed ahead.
      And more - a shot! - what?..
      Standing up on ringing stirrups,
      Nadvuv on his brows pops,
      The brave prince did not say a word;
      The Turkish trunk flashed in his hand,
      A whip click - and, like an eagle,
      He rushed ... and shot again!
      And the wild cry and moan deaf
      Rushed deep into the valley -
      The battle did not last long:
      Timid Georgians fled!

    Apparently, the Genetsvale were thin on their pants, seeing how the Azerbaijanis and Turks beat the Armenians as they wanted and when they wanted. Turkey has already bought up practically all of Batum, and if the Adjarians raise the issue of independence, the Turks will help their fellow believers.

      In my opinion, the super-efficiency of the UAV in the Karabakh conflict is the so-called. survivor's mistake. Because from a UAV you can get a beautiful picture, but from an MLRS or 152 mm missile there is no projectile. And in order to objectively judge the effectiveness of this or that weapon in this conflict, you must at least know the consumption of ammunition for each type of weapon.
      And I completely agree with you about Adjara.

        Well I do not know. I believe that the efficiency and accuracy of UAV fire is much higher than the accuracy and efficiency of fire from multiple launch rocket systems and barreled artillery.

          All other things being equal, Yes. But you need to know how many attacks were and how many of them were effective.
          By the way, what is good about a UAV is that the efficiency can be more accurately established. everything is written down. How it flew. I have found. Where did you shoot. Hit or not. But only these data are known to a narrow circle of people from Azerbaijan and Turkey.

      There is an interesting tendency, thanks to the active work of the Georgian Orthodox Church, a significant part of the Ajarians converted from Islam to Orthodoxy.

    They should invest more in air defense than in ATGMs. Because most likely they will have to fight not against our tanks, but against Turkish drones.
    Although ... Neither deviation in arming the army without normal patronage from the United States will help them. Neither anti-tank systems in the war with Russia, nor air defense systems in the war with Turkey. The countries' potentials are too unequal.

    How many halva you do not say will not become sweeter in your mouth. The army, well, like the army, the Georgian army, the total number of military personnel and civilians is 37 thousand. How many weapons they will buy is ridiculous. But that was already the end of everything we know.

    is also being re-equipped with M-4 automatic rifles
    They are replenishing what was lost in 2008. Ours took out a lot from the Georgian warehouses just M-4, as evidenced by more than one video and confirmed by our military leadership. Well, they will switch completely to American weapons, and then again the roof will start to tear from self-admiration for themselves as a "hero" and the desire to try it out in action?

    The owner ordered the Georgians to buy weapons from him in order to:
    1. Support the US economy
    2. Sell a loan to Georgians to secure land and renounce sovereignty in terms of foreign and domestic policy.

    The strangeness of the friendship of the guarantor with Benei Netanyahu - Israel is stubbornly, purposefully arming the former Soviet republics, and those that are openly or covertly hostile to the Russian Federation. The same can be said for Turkey. There is a triumph of the "successful" foreign policy of the guarantor, which rushes about from all the irons. sad

      To underestimate the enemy is, of course, bad, but it is not good to overestimate either. Any war is money, even for the rank and file.
      We still have an idea and an oath of allegiance in the troops ... Although there is money too.

    Georgia intends to purchase modern weapons

    1.What "shishi"? For American loans?
    2.It will be remembered at the beginning of the millennium, they already bought modern weapons, then attacked South Ossetia.
    It would be better if they put things in order inside the country.

    So that's it. All the former socialist countries and republics of the USSR smoothly turned into anti-Russian Russophobic bridgeheads of the USA and NATO along the borders of the Russian Federation. And just as smoothly they are pumped up with modern weapons. I think that all this is being done so that one day it flares up all over the borders of Russia.
