Czech Defense Ministry Received Acceptance on Accelerated Arms Purchase


“The Czech army is planning an accelerated purchase of new weapons,” said Medek. “In this way, the army’s arsenal will be added if it is necessary to use it within the framework of NATO or while protecting the borders in the event of migratory waves.”

He clarified that on Monday the government approved the placement of 11 military orders in the country's enterprises.

“We proceeded (while accelerating the purchase of weapons) from the ever-worsening situation in the world, which really represents a threat to the interests of the Czech Republic and its citizens, - said after the government meeting, the head of the Ministry of Defense, Martin Stropnitsky. - After analyzing all the current dangers and threats, our ministry was forced to respond effectively and adequately to this situation. ”

The largest order concerns the purchase of 2,6 thousand CZ 805 BREN assault rifles, manufactured with 2011. The rifle was developed based on the modularity concept, which allows equipping it with many modern components, including day and night sights, laser designators, etc. The same order includes 800 suspended grenade launchers. The total value of the transaction is about $ 17,8 million.

The order list also includes Tatra medium and heavy trucks (56 units), and more than 5 thousand CZ 75 SP-01 Phantom pistols.

In addition, multifunctional inflatable tents (33 kit) and mobile power stations (14 installations) will be purchased. "This will increase the ability to quickly establish field command and other points, canteens and workshops," said Medek.

        the Americans were successful.
        The hysteria has begun.
        European countries rushed to buy weapons. Naturally American.
        Businesses loaded. Money river flowed.
        But in fact, in the event of a global military conflict, the fate of the Czech Republic, even with weapons, even without them, will not be decided in Prague !!!
        So the Czech slaves will continue to work for the US military industry!
        But to NATO! laughing
        Rather, then they took it to NATO !!!

              Yes, I read it.
              We proceeded (while accelerating the purchase of weapons) from a constantly deteriorating situation in the world, which really poses a threat to the interests of the Czech Republic and its citizens


              Here I wrote about this reaction of the Czech.

              After analyzing all the current dangers and threats, our ministry was forced to respond to this situation effectively and adequately


              This is the reaction the Americans need.
              Namely, an increase in defense spending.
              In your opinion, the Czech Republic has become a country capable of providing its troops with equipment exclusively of its own production?

      Zeman has a representative function and he has not so much power; he cannot decide and influence such things purely physically.

      He can speak a lot and correctly, but the Czechs are in the orbit of the influence of WASHINGTON and will ultimately do what they order.

      When Czechoslovakia was liberated from the Nazis, 140 of our children laid their heads — the population of a small town!

        I didn’t notice heavy weapons on the list, that’s defense, and since you won’t scare the Russian army with rifles alone, it would be self-defense against a large but poorly armed enemy.

    Yes, that would not look homeless, serving the interests of the United States. For the country's defense, this rearmament does not matter, especially for participating in NATO operations. In fact, these purchases are small even for the police.

    the army arsenal will be supplemented if necessary within the framework of NATO or when guarding borders in the event of migration waves

    Judging by the fact that they mainly buy riflemen, migrants will simply be shot. To counter a serious adversary, they would order heavy weapons.

    from a constantly worsening situation in the world

    Here are just a representative of the Czech Defense Ministry probably hesitated to name the culprit of the worsening situation in the world. And on the other hand, each country has the right to strengthen its defense capabilities. Another question is how will this affect the Czech budget?

      Gennady, yes, in my opinion, not very much, looking at the procurement list there is a feeling of formal excuse from NATO pressure to increase defense spending. Maybe of course I’m wrong, but somehow rifles, pistols and tents with generators for a serious application for the militarization of the Czech Republic somehow do not pull.
      Well, such an opinion, Dear. hi

        No, don’t be mistaken. And to be honest, the Czech Republic, and how other countries are called. Eastern Europe is not in a hurry to shell out before NATO. These are the Balts, so they want a freebie, for anti-Russian slogans. By the way, the Czech Republic lost its weapons production. One Czechoslovak "Czech Zbroinitsa" which was worth.

    I was "pleased" by the article. This is in the sense that there in the Czech Republic, or rather from Prague, they prophesy the beginning of the Third World War with the explosion of tactical nuclear weapons. This is stated in the article. "The predictions of the third world war began to come true" and there "According to Irlmeyer, tactical nuclear weapons will be used in Europe that will sweep Prague off the ground." (the most ridiculous thing was said - the soothsayer of Germany Alois Irlmeyer) on it the following happened before it: “At first, our country will prosper more than ever before. Then there will be a decline in faith in the Lord, and people will wallow in vices, and floods of refugees from the Balkans and from Africa will pour in. Our money will depreciate, there will be high inflation. Soon after that in Germany a revolution and civil war will begin, and then at night Russians unexpectedly invade Europe. " (I agree about the Russians, he turned down, probably under the impression of the 45th year) Okay, but this is interesting: Veronica Lucken saw the forerunners of the nuclear apocalypse as "universal talk of the world", as well as "a bright comet in the sky that will appear unexpectedly for all astronomers" and today I watch on RTR-1 channel that astronomers have fired a large meteorite that flies to the earth.
