    Well, Estonian soldiers, at least they’ll see the tanks live. And then everything is on the news, but in the films.

      Estonians, slowly but surely in the exercises, took over the experience of washing and cleaning the US tanks!

        And not just tanks. Here the Estonian pilot is smartly studying the F-22 cockpit. Probably before this, there was a briefing consisting of one point: 1.) just do not press anything there !!! wassat

            Exactly, the cabin began to close automatically. And the Estonian took such an unnatural position to prevent it from closing. But the automation turned out to be stronger and then the cabin was opened with crowbars lol But there is another option: a real pilot sits in his seat, he just can not be seen behind a wide Estonian wassat

    Americans in training exercises with Estonian troops

    Here, the keywords are “Americans work out,” and “with Estonian troops” is a legend. The main goal is to gather more intelligence for the Americans!

    Here are the teachings of the Americans on Russian borders - this is democracy and the protection of the rights of people. Or something else of this opera!
    But even a plane flight near the Estonian borders (or God forbid the teachings of the Russian Federation) is aggression, provocation, a threat to national security, etc.
    The logic is deadly !! request
    So what Westerners are there to us partners ??? soldier

      They train in a column))))

      In connection with the foregoing, I propose to conduct exercises on the border with Estonia, involving the development of the destruction of columns supplying the enemy with airborne forces and special forces ...

      They have already expressed their doubts about the effectiveness of NATO assistance to the Baltic countries !!!
      The main causes of doubt:
      -the ability to move armored vehicles exclusively on the roads, as she’ll get bogged down on the ground
      - the difference in railway gauge compared to European, which makes it difficult to transfer equipment, l / s and rear support)))
      In fact, they hinted to the sprat-eaters that in the event of a "military boom" they would not count on NATO, except for moral support!
      So your picture is very much in the subject

    ... and also two platoons of paratroopers of the 173th brigade
    The brigade, although one of the most militant, but when to start scared of Russia? Indeed, judging by the well-known replica of US special forces Tim Hake, it is impossible to bring the whole world to its knees with a company of American paratroopers. So, let them continue to play pinball.

    Suicide bombers. In which case. It would be necessary to convey to them this idea ...

      Why? If there is a BP then suicide bombers are the population of those places in the USA where the ICBMs will go, and these have all chances to survive the mutual exchange of blows. True, what will happen after probably only God can say.

    military exercises began in the country, in which paratroopers from the 173rd airborne brigade of the US Army participate.

    The time has come to conduct exercises near Kaliningrad, with a landing. Then it’s convenient to sit in a chair in front of the TV and watch the Baltic States go crazy.

    "The Americans, in training with the Estonian military, mainly practice the evacuation of victims from the battlefield and related procedures."

    As I understand it, even Americans know-EESTAS ARE SUITABLE only as "SUFFICIENT", but they only need tanks there, probably in order to impress local residents !!

    Too many optimistic, arrogant comments. But the point is not that Estonians are not fast and there are only four tanks. The fact is that the creatures have already overlaid us from all sides and are accumulating strength and experience. And where today four tanks tomorrow another 104 will also appear. Yes, and no matter how many people are trained, each one is our future enemy. That's all bad.
