Estonia intends to arm itself with rockets reaching St. Petersburg

90

Estonia continues to intensively arm itself. According to the development plan of the republic's armed forces, the next stage is Tallinn wants to receive operational-tactical complexes. The Army Recognition portal reports.


Estonia has adopted a plan for the development of the armed forces for the period until 2031. According to this document, the Estonian Defense Ministry intends to receive six launchers for tactical missiles with a firing range of up to 350 km. Reportedly, we are talking about the American M270 and M290A1 multiple launch rocket systems, which can also launch tactical missiles. Thus, the Estonian artillerymen will be able to reach the northern capital of the Russian Federation - St. Petersburg.

If everything is clear with the MLRS installations themselves, according to the plans of the Estonian Ministry of Defense, an application for their delivery will be made in the next year, 2022, then there is still no information about tactical missiles. Presumably, the Estonians intend to purchase MGM-140 missiles, adapted for the M270A1 complexes. Most likely, the purchase will be carried out within the framework of military assistance, since Tallinn will not be able to handle these complexes and missiles on its own. The question of approval of the purchase by the US State Department also remains open.

Note that Estonia, unlike Latvia and Lithuania, has been actively arming itself lately. In the last six months alone, a contract was signed for the modernization of K9 Thunder self-propelled artillery systems purchased from South Korea, auxiliary armored vehicles based on the CV90 BMP were ordered, naval mines, Israeli Blue Spear anti-ship missiles (5G SSM) and Spear Mk120 2-mm mortar systems were purchased.

At the end of August, Tallinn asked the European Union for the supply of a medium-range air defense system for "protection from Russia."

    Reading such statements, you come to the conclusion that the Deputy Secretary of the Security Council of the Republic of Belarus did not just say about the beginning of the end of the Baltic statehood.

          In February 2017, a demonstration march of several companies of Estonian and US military personnel was already held in Estonia. with propaganda visits by Americans to Russian schools in Estonia, as well as with the involvement of American soldiers in pro-American propaganda lectures at the University of Tartu.

          One of the "points of the program" of such an "educational program" in Estonia was clearly provocative, triumphant, boastful photographing of American soldiers with the US flag in front of the ancient fortress of the Russian Ivangorod (Leningrad region).

          One of the commentators for this photo, published in the BaltNews edition, already then - in 2017 - hinted that Estonia under the auspices of the United States is clearly unwisely asking for a PREVENTIVE retaliation from the Russian Armed Forces.

          But the fact that? You have to really look at life. These undersides will constantly anger us at least threaten them. This is their national idea. For this they are fed. They need to give them a razik on the nose. But again, they took them into nature for this. To piss us off. There, everyone who is inventing this perfectly understands the fact that there are no fools to wait until they start working. There is no decision time. And in this case, there is always a preemptive plan. Those who suit the world in such a racket at supersonic speed are tightening what is even scary ...

              NATO attacks in such a way that they almost closed in 2013, and all EU countries reduced military budgets to almost zero. Russia has truly breathed new life into NATO. Wait 10 years for Russia, NATO itself would be reformed into something toothless and incomprehensible.

            Listen, Russia has a weapon that can reach even to Estonia, and at least to anything. They also have the right to have weapons that reach Russia. Or don’t they? What's the question? Or they are, as it were, listed as constant "aggressors", while we are, as it were, "peaceful" people. Only we have the right to have any weapon, but they do not. What kind of "priority" is this?

      Apparently, the Russian Armed Forces should also consider the possibility of acquiring missiles to finish off Tallinn.

      It is just right for the Russian Armed Forces to reduce the missile range, so that Brussels would not be caught inadvertently ...

    Well, they all do not live calmly. War, war ... Do they really not understand that God forbid it starts and neither NATO membership nor multiple launch rocket systems will save them, nothing will save them. They will be the first to get mixed up and they will curse the day they joined NATO.
    Dope!

    It is necessary to invite Estonian officials and members of the public to Russia, and show them a missile with a nuclear warhead (not necessarily a real one, it can also be a dummy), while explaining to them that it is aimed at Estonia. And immediately they will no longer want to arm themselves laughing

      No, well, a volley from Estonia will certainly harm Russia, but a return volley may not leave a stone unturned. Although, take your time, one still thinks, well, or thinks what he thinks, it all depends on the Swedes, and they are already calculating the situation when the Finns will have 64 F-35s, and they attack Peter unnoticed.

    In the Pskov region, it is necessary to deploy the Smerch MLRS in sufficient quantities. In order to burn everything out with the slightest stir.
    Hit it first! It will be so right.

    Yes of course. We also lacked nuclear mushrooms 100 km from St. Petersburg! fool

    small tactical nuclear warheads a'la SBCH for Pions, there won't be any mushrooms on fast neutrons, since everything in the vicinity of 10 km will die from radiation and what did you strike against Estonia with a megaton class SBC?

    The leaders of Estonia are certainly very brave people, and they are not afraid that their Talliiinn will instantly receive a thermonuclear warhead in the very center of the city, unfortunately not very powerful, because Peter is close!

      I already wrote. The Pribolts are assimilated in the western territories of the EEC. Fortunately, there are few of them. The electorate and rulers will leave the Baltic dunes and marshes and will participate from outside, vote, etc. There will remain autists in the farms, who have been fighting the invasion of the Red Army since the age of 39 and an empty territory. Where can the NATO bases be placed, which could, in everyday life, be serviced by Svidomo, but since they are too thieves, they will attract the Bangladeshis. laughing

    This whole story with the hysteria of European neophytes, their jumping without pants and throwing feces, probably, according to the sponsors, should lead Russians to some doubt, “and not we, are we ourselves to blame for all this?” Well, yes, we, of course , not a gift, but not to the same extent laughing

    It is amazing that such a small and puny state like Estonia, with a little more than 1,3 million people, acquires weapons and tries to threaten a city with a population of over 5,3 million. Russophobia has completely destroyed the instinct of self-preservation.

    Thus, the Estonian artillerymen will be able to reach the northern capital of the Russian Federation - St. Petersburg.

    So who is threatening whom? Who is the aggressor? If you do not want good-neighborly relations, you will receive an answer in the form of Iskanders with nuclear weapons to turn Estonia into a nuclear desert.
