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.

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.
