​Deal is covered by a joint procurement agreement that lasts until 2027

The MoDs of Latvia and Estonia signed a deal in late October to buy training grenades from Rheinmetall Waffe Munition ARGES and Bristol Trust OÜ.

Latvia could buy single-use and reusable training grenades for €1.4 million under a joint procurement agreement with Estonia which lasts until 2027.

‘One of the most important elements of military training is to bring it as close as possible to real combat conditions, and the new agreement will help us to ensure this. Joint procurement is a strong confirmation of our cooperation with our closest neighbors and allies, which benefits all parties involved,’ Minister of Defence Artis Pabriks said on 4 November.

Already in 2020 the two Baltic republics sealed a deal for new-generation Carl Gustaf M4 grenade launchers, and Latvia also teamed up with Lithuania to buy gas masks.
