Anti-ship missiles from Israel to be deployed on shores of Gulf of Finland

Estonia Upgrades its Naval Capabilities with Blue Spear Missiles, Boosts Military Spending: A Look at Estonia’s Strategic Move

The Estonian Ministry of Defense has announced that its navy has been equipped with a new batch of Blue Spear sea-to-sea missiles from the Israeli state defense concern Aviation Industry. These fifth generation missiles, with a range of 200 kilometers, are part of the Gabriel anti-ship missile system and come with two guidance systems and electronic warfare capabilities. This makes Estonia the third country to receive these new missiles, following Israel and Finland.

Both Israel and Finland control the exit from the Gulf of Finland, where the new missiles will be deployed. The Singapore Navy’s Formidable class frigates are also set to be equipped with these missiles. This move by Estonia is seen as a strategic move to improve its naval capabilities and defend its waters against potential threats.

This announcement comes after a period of increased military spending by Estonia, which has been investing in modernizing its defense forces to better protect itself against cyber threats and other forms of aggression. The acquisition of these new missiles is just one example of this effort to upgrade its military capabilities.

As an added benefit, these new missiles are also designed to be highly accurate and effective against various types of targets, making them a valuable addition to any navy’s arsenal. Overall, this move by Estonia is seen as a positive step towards improving its security posture and ensuring that it can defend itself against potential threats in the future.
