Finland terminated the contract with the United States for the supply of tactical missiles

28

According to the Helsingin Sanomat newspaper, Finland terminates the contract for the supply of guided missiles from the United States worth one hundred million euros. Under the contract, the States were to supply the armed forces with ATACMS tactical missile systems.


The delivery project was frozen due to too high a price. The representative of the Ministry of Defense told the newspaper that the complexes were considered too outdated defense systems.

The armed forces will continue to try to get a durable defense system, but this time more modern and profitable.

As part of ordering ATACMS systems, Finland managed to update the MLRS launcher launch control system for 40 million euros.

Finland received permission to purchase missile systems from the US Congress in 2012.

      But the Chukhons are well done, you’ll be fooled, they still buy and use weapons of the Russian Federation and the USSR for nothing.

    Correctly congratulate the Finns, not that Western Ukrainians were guilty of the promised crane in the sky rather than a tit in their hands, but we’ll break our teeth like a nightingale to a robber!

      I think the same way. It's not about "old stuff or rubbish", the Finns just realized that Russia shouldn't be angry anymore. am

        Yes, they will buy dates from us, they are not in NATO, they are no stranger to them, and they had the MIG-21 for 25 years, and the T-72 was in service, even small arms - a glkbok modernization of the Kalash. Are there really no "Points" left for sale to the Finns at BHVT gluboeo in the Urals?

    The US thinks in vain that it will serve over two oceans. They will destroy them. Too late they remembered about the missile defense. When we were diligently destroying the USSR and destroying nuclear weapons, we still had patriots. Operation "Sleeping Demons" required almost two years of hard work.
    Fortunately, everything was designed and prepared earlier. Mini-submarines, combat swimmers and even civilian ships were involved. The moment was right, vigilance weakened, because the main enemy was finally defeated. As a result, 286 nuclear charges of various capacities were installed along both US coasts. even very very "wow" in the area of ​​the California fault. Without knowing the coordinates in the water column it is impossible to detect it, it was probably not necessary even to disguise itself as debris and other natural phenomena. Simple enough electronics, in which there is nothing to break, is powered by a radioisotope source which will last for decades. No antennas, no electromagnetic radiation.
    Charges are activated by a very powerful specially modulated acoustic wave from a device located far from the coast. They are duplicated, and suddenly the crab bites off the antenna or the battery runs out. Joke. Everything is triggered by the coded radio signal, but with a time delay so that the interference does not distort the acoustic field. The same time delay is applied when the charges are detonated, but there are troubles. There is no cancellation of the command, it’s the Doomsday weapon, when all the arguments have been exhausted and the strangers missiles are approaching our borders. And why should we spend money on ballistics, they would have warned everyone, although they will begin to search. And we have enough other enemies. But it is better that the demons never wake up.

    Iskander can be on the ball (with polite people in picking), and the vehicle itself will come.

    The Finns didn’t take the junk, the Yusovtsy got it for someone else! They were able to pair Georgia, Poland, and M16 sprats, although Kalash in these countries, at least ... .... yes!

    Maybe the Finns (on the exchange of experience) fired at the crane from "Tochka-u" .. the pig got stuck in the attic of a residential building in Brovary?

    Finns, as in the recent past, Russian citizens understand better than others that if the Russians are not angry, then there is nothing to be afraid of.

    Interesting ... They invested in the control system, and what they don't buy to control. So the reason is not the high cost. And the “patron” needs good reasons to refuse. It can only be life.

    In NATO, the United States has established a monopoly on its armaments. The Finns have nothing to be wise, but we need to buy our systems, especially since they surpass all the systems of the world by several times.
