Estonia borrows Soviet tank from Latvia for military drills

Estonian armed forces borrowed a Soviet-era T-55 tank from Estonia to hold military exercises, the Latvian Chas online edition said on Friday.

According to the website, Estonia does not possess its own tanks, while Latvia has some Soviet-era tanks, presented to the Baltic state by the Czech Republic few years ago.

The Chas said the Estonian military intend to use the Latvian T-55 to check the strength of several military facilities.

The Ohtuleht online edition said Poland intended to present five T-55 tanks to Estonia in 1999, but the country rejected the proposal.

I believe not all of T-55 tanks were cut, some have been withdrawn into reserve.

If there was just a little bit of wisdom (I hope it was), it would be truth.

Latvia has three T-55s, and they are used for training only. Estonia wanted to acquire some Leopard2A4s from German stocks, however, this plan was shelved indefinitely, due to economic crisis.

I don’t think this news is really important. Both of countries are in NATO, and concept of NATO is, that all of countries together have all military capabilities.
So why not to share from neighbor? (of course nothing is free Wink )
