The Centre for Defence Investment (RKIK), the state body responsible for defense procurement on behalf of the Estonian Defence Forces (EDF) and other organizations, and representatives of EuroSpike signed the framework agreement for the procurement on Thursday, BNS reports. The agreement covers a 7-year and includes an option to purchase additional units. The first EuroSpikes are planned for delivery to the Estonian army in Q3 2020, and will be utilized by the infantry brigade's anti-tank companies.

The RKIK announced the procurement in October last year. Together with infantry fighting vehicles, self-propelled guns, automatic firearms and supplementing existing equipment and stock, the procurement represents part of the RKIK's priorities for the coming decade.
