    In my region the purchase of these vehicles was quite widely commented. Latvia, like other Baltic states (Lithuania and Estonia), after the annexation of the Crimea by Russia, was looking for a way to quickly, relatively cheaply and effectively increase its defense capabilities. In this situation, the selection of ex-British vehicles was quite a reasonable solution.
    Sorry for my English.

    Well you all picked a well tested and combat proven vehicle type, the CVRT is a versatile vehicle.
    Your English is fine brother ;)

    You're right. However, the Latvian armed forces still lack a heavy component such as tank subdivisions with Leopard 2 or Challenger tanks. Antitanks missiles will not always work against the tanks of the T-72 B3 class. The artillery upgraded the American self-propelled M109s, but these were all ad-hoc measures, and their long road to a planned and thoughtful modernization of their armed forces, especially anti-aircraft defense, awaited them. They have a good example of how to develop a defense based on a not very large fund and area - Finland.
