Estonia Orders SPIKE LR Anti-Tank Guided Missiles

By Arie Egozi

The Estonian MoD signed a €40 million Euro Framework agreement with Eurospike (a European Joint Venture between Rafael Advanced Defence Systems, Diehl Defence and Rheinmettal Defence), for the supply of SPIKE LR ATGM’s, launchers and associated maintenance and training. 

The contract includes Integrated Control Launch Units (ICLU) launchers and live SPIKE rounds. 

SPIKE is a multi-platform, multi-mission and multi-range electro-optical missile Family, with capabilities of fire-and-forget, as well as fire, observe and update, allowing attack of hidden targets.

Estonia is the 32nd user nation of the SPIKE missile, and the 19th user among the EU and NATO. More than 30,000 SPIKE missiles have been supplied to-date around the world, with over 5500 SPIKE missiles firings, both in training and in combat.

According to Rafael, the SPIKE missile and launcher cross-nation commonality enables nations to manage joint SPIKE missile stocks, create joint procurement and maintain mutual support.
