US Army delivers 128 Javelin anti-tank missiles to Estonia
TALLINN, (BM) – Yesterday, April 2, the United States reported that it delivered 128 Raytheon Javelin 128 anti-tank missiles to Estonia on February 15, learned BulgarianMilitary.com citing Delfi.ee.
According to the US Embassy, this is one of the largest contracts between the US and Estonian armies.
“The cargo arrived will help strengthen cooperation between our countries and NATO partners. The Raytheon Javelin anti-tank system is part of ongoing cooperation, which includes co-financing from the US Department of State and the Estonian state budget,” the embassy said.
Over the past few years, the United States has donated over $ 100 million to Estonia to strengthen military capabilities.
“They also say that the USA does not want to help us. “Javelin” missiles are exactly what Estonia needs in a pandemic and economic crisis,” says Alexander Chaplygin, editor-in-chief of the Tallinn edition of the Capital.
BulgarianMilitary.com recalls that on uly last year the Estonian Ministry of Defense signed a framework agreement with Eurospike to acquire Rafael-made Spike anti-tank guided missiles for €40 million (approx. $45 million).
The initial purchase includes 18 launchers and ammunitions, as well as additional equipment, technical support and training.
