    The first batch of heavy American military equipment arrived in Estonia


    Another rotation of American troops on our borders ... but how pleased the Estonians are feeling behind them the clang of tracks of heavy US equipment .... still, the syndrome of fear of RUSSIA is sitting deep in their souls ... it’s clear that the Baltic states allow themselves too much WASHINGTON free behavior in relation to RUSSIA.
    But the very fact of the appearance of heavy Pentagon military equipment at the borders of RUSSIA does not bode well ... the presence of NATO aircraft at Baltic airports is also a threat to RUSSIA ... oh sorry the NKVD did not work out and Stalin was too humane for the Estonian nationalists to dissolve them all and assimilate in the open spaces of SIBERIA and now there would not be such a threat for us.

      Would these toys not be pulled away for scrap, Estonians like dill, which they put their eyes on and try to sniff, though at their speed they don’t steal a lot.

      You can laugh at the Balts, including Estonians.

      But! Baltic Limitrophs as a bridgehead pose a threat to Russia.

      First of all, this is the creation of tension. Military tension.
      It is clear that if something happens, the Baltic states will have a quick and inglorious end!

      But I do not want to wait! Something needs to be done with this bridgehead.
      By the way, before the Great Patriotic War this bridgehead was almost bloodlessly liquidated.

      Is it interesting that there are partisans in Estonia? Can we still hear about derailed enemy echelons? soldier

        If things go on like this, then there will be partisans. Indeed, in Estonia there are many Russian-speaking population
        The Russian-speaking population of Estonia makes up about 30% of the country's inhabitants and is divided into three approximately equal groups: about 100 thousand citizens of Estonia, about 95 thousand citizens of Russia, and also less than 95 thousand stateless persons.

      Strange some colors in American tanks. We have late autumn now. Winter is coming soon.

      And the coloring of the “Abrams” is some kind of desert ... They didn’t mix anything up? winked

        there are no brains, so they sent equipment with a desert camouflage, or maybe the Baltic states have simplified it like "we have dunes in the Baltic here, there is a lot of sand." And in principle, those that are other strategists of ANALYTICS. Hmm ... Vissarionovich took pity on them at the time, little to order

          Maybe the author just inserted a photo from Iraq or Afghanistan? It is only the Ukrainian army that is fighting in the “desert” camouflage in the Donbass fool

    It's time to equip the base in Mexico. Necessarily will not be superfluous.

      Not in Mexico but in Cuba, it was reported that our people there were talking with them about the expansion of the fleet's presence.

    They brought it, now they’ll put it on the base and will walk around them proudly: this technique cannot really drive around the local area, the soil does not allow it. Therefore, apparently, they did not repaint, there was no place to mask anyway, and there was no reason to.

      Yes ... the terrain in the district does not allow the widespread use of heavy military equipment ... therefore, it can only move on the roads existing there ... and this already puts them in a vulnerable position for our aviation and sabotage groups.

        I remember the story of American rail-based missiles. The smartest thing that they did was to build separate branches throughout the country, because they could not start from the usual railway tracks. And then they still realized that it costs the enemy to destroy the starting branches and these complexes turn into expensive scrap metal.

        And on the territory of the Baltic states - what can be hidden there? Maybe if they fight among themselves, this is a serious armored fist. And from our point of view? The Hurricane volley solves the problem of the presence of American troops in Estonia. And at the same time, I think, the problem of the existence of half of the Estonian army.

        Not being a specialist in MLRS, I could be wrong, but, in any case, for the Hurricanes there, I think, there is not much work ...

      Poplars fly under their own power to the mattress states. Look at the m / v of their missiles and do not write nonsense.

    In Portugal, the equipment was pulled out during exercises, in Estonia it will be necessary from the swamp.
    But it will be more difficult.

    Let them import. In which case, she will be the first to spray. More will burn here, less will have to burn there. And there’s nowhere to make new tanks for Amers, except at the Ford factory.

    a train arriving with heavy American military equipment

    In this regard, Rogozin said not bad
    Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin, on his Facebook page, commented on the arrival of American tanks and armored personnel carriers in Estonia.
    "Weak consolation for the faint-hearted Russophobia, unable to live without foreign troops on their territory," wrote Dmitry Rogozin

    In parallel, it is useful to report that an abundance of anti-tank systems from Russia arrived on the borders of this great under-Republic "to compensate for possible damage." - Let them scratch their hair!

    With the same success, something to place containing uranium in the Kaliningrad region and say - don’t worry, this weapon is not in permanent placement, but in temporary rotation :)
