Estonian Defence Forces has received a second tranche of Javelin anti-tank missiles. The $33 million purchase was funded with U.S. European Reassurance Initiative funds.
The U.S.-produced Javelin missile can defeat any tank in the world and is the standard system used by the U.S. Army.
Working together with U.S. to acquire this important defensive capability demonstrates the Alliance commitment to Estonia´s self-defence and mutual aid to harden national defences against external security threats.
The procurment of Javelin anti-tank missile systems is in line with the National Defence Development Plan 2013-2022, which calls for reinforcing the Defence Forces’ anti-tank capability and purchase of next-generation anti-tank missile systems.
