Estonia has entered talks with the U.S. to buy up to 80 anti-tank missile systems costing tens of millions of euros, reports Public Broadcasting.

On Tuesday, July 29, test shooting from the Javelin anti-tank missile system took place at the Defense Forces central training ground, where all three missiles that were launched hit their targets.

Estonia's Defense Minister Sven Mikser said developing anti-tank capabilities were a significant step for the nations military.

"We have started negotiations with our U.S. allies over buying the Javelin anti-tank missile system that was demonstrated today and, hopefully, we will reach a procurement contract already this year," said Mikser.

Javelin is a U.S made fire-and-forget anti-tank missile used by many countries since the middle of the 1990s.

The missile locks automatically after shooting to target.
