Czech Republic to boost spending on land weapons in 2019

Czech Defence Minister Lubomir Metnar has announced the country’s plans to expand purchases for infantry fighting vehicles, helicopters, mobile air defense radars, and other systems as part of a broader effort to update its military’s inventory and replace older Russian weapons with more modern ones made locally and by its western allies. These purchase decisions have become a regional trend since Russia’s invasion and annexation of the Crimea in 2014.
