Estonia is set to sign substantial contracts totaling approximately €200 million ($211 million) to procure armored vehicles from Türkiye, strengthening the capabilities of the Estonian Defense Forces (EDF).
This strategic move aims to enhance Estonia’s national defense infrastructure.
More than 200 vehicles will be allocated to the Estonia Defense Forces’ 2nd infantry brigade, said the state-run ERR news agency, citing the Estonia Center for Defense Investments. The brigade has reportedly witnessed substantial investment in recent years.
Furthermore, four armored vehicles will be dispatched to the Estonian Rescue Agency for demining purposes, according to the agency.
The Defense Ministry is expected to finalize contracts Wednesday, with Turkish National Defense Minister Yaşar Güler planning to visit Estonia on the occasion.
