The first batch of Mistral 3 anti-aircraft missiles arrived in Estonia

82
Estonia became the first foreign country to receive French anti-aircraft missiles of the new generation Mistral 3, which are designed to hit targets at low and medium altitudes, reports MIC with reference to the press service of the Estonian Defense Ministry.




"Rockets with new engines are capable of hitting targets at a greater height and with greater speed; they are able to separate true targets from false ones," the release says.

“The purchase of new anti-aircraft missiles is important for enhancing Estonia’s defense capability for many reasons, since the current means of air transportation are capable of flying in various weather conditions at low altitudes, the targets are getting smaller and have increased means of protection,” Harles said. Koska.

The contract with the manufacturing company MBDA was concluded in March of 2015. In addition to anti-aircraft guns, Estonia also receives anti-tank missiles MILAN from the same manufacturer.

For the first time, Mistral rockets of an earlier modification were delivered to Estonia in 2009. Now they are in service with air defense forces in 30 countries.

        Are caps worth sitting around? Of course, Estonia is not going to attack anyone, but the increase in the fighting efficiency of the Eton forces forces even to theoretically consider a larger outfit of forces from the Russian Federation for the occupation of Estonia and more time for this. And there are different fighters among Estonians. It is enough to recall the "Estonian Corps" in the Red Army.

      I think this is from the realm of fiction. MANPADS have a different purpose.
      In general, the first “Mistral” appeared in Afghanistan. They noted: Bloipipe (English), Mistral (fr), Red Ey and of course Stinger. Stinger was cooler.

    Our deputies have no word in .. they don’t hold it, they have already spoken in the media about the closed meeting of deputies with Shoigu in the State Duma. At the meeting, they spoke about placing the Strategic Missile Forces in the state of PBG.
    If the strategic nuclear forces of Russia are on high alert, then the last time does not change the memory, such readiness was announced in connection with the Crimea and the Caribbean crisis.

    I don’t know how the weapons that came to them, but the Estonians, they are still animals, believe me, I lived there 13 years, and with such weapons the terminator rests against their background. But seriously, the next “woof-woof” from the Baltic states, they say, you Russians do not forget about us, and then the meaning of your existence is missing.

    If a country cannot produce anything, it has the last resource, namely trade in hatred of Russia. A very popular product on the international market. All the Baltic states have been living on this for twenty years. Ukraine is the same bargained.

    I’m afraid they won’t help the Estonians. With the Estonian "slowness" only on planes and shoot, as it flew half an hour ago]

    Are caps worth sitting around? Of course, Estonia is not going to attack anyone, but the increase in the fighting efficiency of the Eton forces forces even to theoretically consider a larger outfit of forces from the Russian Federation for the occupation of Estonia and more time for this. And there are different fighters among Estonians. It is enough to recall the "Estonian Corps" in the Red Army.


    Yes, no one is going to attack them, this is nonsense of their inflamed consciousness, if someone needs them, then they are only for NATO bridlavs.
    But if someone thinks that it will be possible to threaten Russia and the question of the life and death of our state arises, believe me, NATO will not save anyone (the “anaconda loop” is accepted in relation to Russia and it’s not we who surround them, but they). The first instigators with your mongrel in place - to distill, will be the first to die. All perish, we do not get used to in the circle of "friends."
    And as for the fighters that they are different, these are common truths.

      In Estonia, much more ammunition is spent on small arms training than ours. Unfortunately. And shooting sport, traditionally, is at its best. How many USSR shooting champions from the Baltic came out, you know? The phrase "Baltic snipers" is not familiar?

      The airfields in Pskov and Ostrov are quite close to the state border with NATO (less than 50 km) and from Estonia. In the event of a crew navigation error, entry into the airspace of Estonia or Latvia is possible. They can also be "crazy" following the example of the "elder brother" (Turkey is a member of NATO).

    Something you broke up about the Estonian brothers. Do not go to a fortuneteller this political decision to hit the ball with a rollback. The people who created the airspace surveillance system in Estonia were well aware of the consequences. They did not need instructions from behind the puddle, they knew very well that they would "crush" anyone. They didn’t even want to guard their radar, they knew that there was no sense in this, the result would be one — they would destroy it. Where they served until the collapse of the fools did not keep. But time is unstoppable, now there are other "heroes", and they studied, guess where?

      Did you live in Estonia? Where does such confidence come from that the people of Estonia are hungry? for example, I lived there and I can say that people there live pretty well not in comparison with many countries. minimum 390 euros; allowances for each child 90 euros; almost 100% pay for many medicines; products are not very expensive. and most importantly, with Russian, unlike Latvians, they are friends regardless of the situation. And lastly, there are a lot of Russians and you are trying to insult them! not very masculine!

            This is very good, they just like the countries in which you can earn. If I make enough money to feed my family, then I won’t go anywhere. How can one make money in Estonia if there is no industry, the fishing fleet has decreased, the airline airline has closed, and a war of sanctions with Russia. In Europe, Estonian pilots are not needed; Estonian plumbers are needed there.

If you lose in the competition, then again, this is your problem, not Europe (Asia, America or Oceania). Have to go down the social ladder. To the right level. When desires coincide with possibilities. And it is possible that you will have to carry bags in the warehouse. Although "there is a vocation" to lead the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

        And so I am very happy for my countrymen. I just can’t understand where so much money comes from, if there is no industry and the state budget a large percentage consists of EU handouts.
        And why the availability of such wealth is declining.
        If the population of Russia disappeared as fast as it happens in the Baltic states, then the accumulated wealth for every Russian would have accounted for even more.
        There is a lie, there is a big lie, and there are statistics.
        And you could not a reference to the Russian press. otherwise there are a lot of press in Russia, you won’t read the whole thing.

    Patriotism is good, worse when it is replaced by idiocy.
    Once again: Estonia, like the rest of the Baltic republics, is a bridgehead that is saturated with troops. From Narva to St. Petersburg 160 km (!!!). In Estonia, there are two modern military airfields inhabited and flown by NATO aircraft, an ice-free port, and a NATO cybersecurity center in Estonia. In Soviet times, the number of engineers per capita in Estonia was the highest in the Union; universities remained and are functioning.
    The local army is only 5000 people, together with headquarters, etc., but there are 25000 kitesellers (partisans). It is unwise to look at Estonia separately from the Leopards in Finland.
    About the Balts as a military - remember the story. Latvian arrows, Estonian Corps. They fought much better than the national divisions from the Caucasus (who missed the Wehrmacht in the Crimea and why, inquire).
    The hatred of couch strategists "patriots" on the site is starting to annoy.

    It is necessary to directly recognize the strengthening of the military component of Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania in recent years, cheers-patriots have already shouted about the purchase of old armored vehicles by Lithuania, it turned out that they have only a name from the old ones. Here they directly stated that the complexes have already been modernized, so "URAYAYA!" screaming and laughing is not necessary: ​​the distances are too small, so this issue must be taken seriously. NATO will now try to "saturate" the Balts as much as possible with all necessary, maybe not entirely new, but quite effective weapons, given the real psychosis in the minds of the rulers and part of the citizens of these countries against Russia (it’s easier to try to fight with the wrong hands!), And then- we'll see how it goes.
