American 155-mm self-propelled guns Paladin M109A6 arrived in the town of Tapa (Estonia), reports RIA News with reference to the portal Delfi.


American CAO Paladin arrived in Estonia


In total, more than 10 units of equipment arrived in the city. It will be used in combat shooting and will stay in Estonia until December.

The Paladin is armed with an 155 mm howitzer М284, capable of firing at a distance of up to 30 km.

Previously, they were transferred to the republic Tanks Abrams and Bradley armored personnel carriers.

Thus, NATO’s last year’s decision to increase the Allied military presence in Eastern Europe is being implemented.

        I think that an adequate and balanced reaction will follow from our side. And most importantly - effective. And not some hints there, but so that it could be seen by everyone - both friends and enemies. Approximately as in the case of the Caspian.

          Yes, there will be no reaction, what are you talking about? Ten pieces of equipment in some sort of six-country, but our Defense Ministry will not even lead to this "threat" there are more important things to do!

            There may be ten units of equipment, but the self-propelled guns Paladin are all 2 pieces ... you can’t even name this transfer, some kind of rectal spit.

              The reaction will be necessary.
              Just officially for the media no statement will be made (possibly).

              But there is no doubt that the military units of the western district are brought to a degree of readiness that will allow them to adequately respond to a hypothetical invasion.

              The military has no such thing - I believe that it will attack, I do not believe that it will attack (to react, not to react). Potential is always evaluated. If there is any military activity, the necessary countermeasures are taken with a view to possible response.

              P.E. I think measures have already been taken.

        In general, the Americans have come up with a good idea, you put your hangers-on in power, they breed a hysteria about a "terrible enemy" and at the expense of the budget of this country they support the contingent, removing part of the financial burden.) they are also glad to have such defenders.)

        One thing upsets, we do not have normal propaganda, since we cannot play on these events at the same Baltic states or in the same Ukraine.

        Maybe so, but for some reason, weekly news comes about the delivery of US military equipment to Eastern Europe, but there is no news about the withdrawal of equipment back to the United States or to bases in Germany / France. This is the concentration of technology in the framework of the plan to attack the Russian Federation. Preventive nuclear strike + ground operation with the disabling of the country's air defense - this is the only thought of NATO and US strategists. Every day they discuss how to destroy the Russians there.
        The Chinese are in their role. They didn’t even climb into Syria. Yes, even 1 Air Force strike on ISIS did not provide. Empty saber-rattling is all that China does, and in the manner of the DPRK, threats in the media give rise.

      Why aren't these guns used in the fight against terrorism? Why is America focusing its forces on the borders of Russia when the Islamic State is the main threat? We are likely to never get an answer to all these questions. Only the US State Department will please us with its memorized remarks: “we think,” “we have information,” “we need to clarify,” and “it seems to us.”

      No, it’s not necessary to Cuba, it’s enough for the poor Cubans, let them establish friendship with the Americans. In three years, Cuba will be like in dill.
      And to calm these abnormal
      Arrange demonstration firing with a "mace" or "caliber" but not somewhere in Kamchatka, but right next to Manhattan, then they’ll definitely do the job, they’ll do it and calm down for a long time, and as an explanation to say this "like a gesture of goodwill, they decided to please the local residents with fireworks", by the way, Christmas is coming soon.

        The Americans are at least practical, they bring all their scrap to the Europa especially the Baltic states, they don’t care about the Baltic states, they’ll clean them up, they’ll buy new engines, they will show at the parades, people have fun - the state protects you from these terrible Russians whom you go to work .

              You can be calm, everything you need and we are also stored as it should and in sufficient quantity, maybe they can only not be sealed in plastic because after 5-10 years it (plastic) disintegrates into dust.

            Surely they’re not rusty yet, and they will fit quite well in a general store for vodka a couple of times to drive away until the freebie diesel is over, I would easily have done that ... I really don’t know for sure they are on diesel fuel or gasoline, but they are ancient as a mammoth guano one hundred pounds. Of these, even the poor Vietnamese were fired. laughing

    The United States sent this battery to simulate support for a "NATO outpost" near Russia's borders. In reality, this does not constitute a threat. However, the appearance is created: Estonia is a NATO member and NATO does not abandon its own.
    PS But what is happening in the country 404 against the backdrop of the Paris attacks? Silence is a little scary. But ukram is conveniently quiet to start squeezing the militia from, say, Donetsk ...

    All this CAO and Bradley on the border is a purely populist move. After all, it is clear that in the event of a confrontation between NATO and Russia, nuclear weapons will be used. The scenario "shoot and disperse", as with Damansky, is unlikely to work - there was a territorial dispute. We have a more serious batch. The West wants to ruin us because our collapse will delay the collapse of the United States. And we want to survive as a country, and we are ready for a lot for this.

    From Wikipedia (Tapa):
    During the Soviet period, parts of the Soviet army were in the city - by 1991, a school of mechanics-drivers of engineering troops, an anti-aircraft missile brigade and parts of the Air Force: a fighter aviation regiment and a separate squadron of Mi-24 helicopters. A local attraction is a military airfield. From here, on May 28, 1987, the MiG-23 flew on alarm to intercept target 8255 - the "Cessna-172B" Matthias Rust, who landed on Red Square. In 1950-1962, Tapa was the center of the Tapa region.
    The city lived off the railroad and the military industry, the population in 1989 was 10400, of which 3860 were Estonians.

    Now, according to Google, there live about seven thousand. Half, it turns out, Russian. Most likely military pennies, former workers, family members. And the base is striped near by.
    So you walk along the street and you see the faces of those against whom he was preparing to fight all his career in war.
    You will not envy ...

    Ten barrels naturally mean nothing to us. On the other hand, the Americans set themselves another tick to protect their Eastern "friends" and inspired the Balts to start another round of Russophobic hysteria. That is what they (the Americans) need. And the wolves are fed and the sheep are safe.

    Recently, Mr. Zhirinovsky - vice-speaker of the State. The Duma of Russia declared that Russia should return its borders to the state of January 1917, and earlier, it did not present territorial claims to Lithuania, i.e., to return the "Stalinist gift" to Vilnius and Klaipeda. As you know, the party of Mr. Zhirinovsky in Russia has many Stornnikiv and political influence. NATO fulfills its obligations, this is a threat to the ally. In the Baltic countries, it is planned to deploy one tank brigade with parts of the logistics. I think this is an adequate response.
