Georgia want to buy combat drones and additional anti-tank systems Javelin


According [...] to the correspondent of the newspaper "VZGLYAD" in Tbilisi, Georgia in 2021 intends "in cooperation with its strategic partner - America" to purchase an additional batch of Javelin anti-tank missile systems "to strengthen the anti-tank defense capabilities." This was stated on December 22, 2020 by acting defense Minister of Georgia Irakli Garibashvili.

Garibashvili did not specify how many Javelins Georgia will buy in addition. According to him, the process of equipping Georgian army units with American M4 carbines will be completed next year.

Earlier, Georgia has already acquired Javelin anti - tank systems in the United States- 410 missiles and 72 launchers.

Irakli Garibashvili, speaking at parliamentary committee hearings, said that Georgia will also purchase combat and reconnaissance drones, without specifying the number.

It is necessary to strengthen air defense, he said, saying that Georgia has already received radars, a mobile command post and air defense systems of the Mistral system under a contract with France.

Cooperation with the Israeli company "Raphael"on the modernization of the country's air defense will also continue.

In June, the Ministry of Defense of the Republic reported that Georgia intends to purchase additional Javelins.
