Estonia selects Spike ATGM missile
The Estonian ministry of defence has signed a €40 million framework agreement with the Eurospike consortium for the supply of the Spike LR anti-tank guided missile (ATGM), launchers and associated maintenance and training.
The contract was signed in Tallinn, Estonia in June, and will include the provision of integrated control launch nit launchers and live Spike rounds.
Spike is a precise, multi-platform, multi-mission and multi-range electro-optical missile family, with fire-and-forget capabilities, in addition to an ability to fire, observe and update, allowing attack of hidden targets.
