Estonia selects Spike ATGM missile

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.
