RNLA personnel familiarise Estonians with the CV90

Dutch infantrymen are currently in Estonia to demonstrate the possibilities offered by the CV90 infantry fighting vehicle. Estonia recently bought a total of 44 CV90s from the Netherlands. These vehicles are to be delivered in 2016, by which time the Estonians want to be able to handle the vehicles.

Estonia bought the surplus CV90s in order to increase their firepower. In addition, the Estonian army wishes to step up its military exercises with NATO partners in view of the current developments on the eastern border of the Baltic country.
