The Israeli state defense concern, Aviation Industry, has recently provided the Estonian Ministry of Defense with a new batch of Blue Spear sea-to-sea missiles. These fifth generation missiles, which have 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 marks 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. These developments further strengthen the naval capabilities of these countries and increase their ability to defend their waters against potential threats.
This news comes at a time when tensions in the region are high and concerns about maritime security are on the rise. With its advanced technology and capabilities, this new batch of Blue Spear sea-to-sea missiles is sure to be a valuable asset in protecting Estonia’s interests in the sea.
