[..] As concerns the Baltic states, there is broad agreement that a lack of air defence is today their biggest military capability shortfall. The three states have built a system for peacetime air surveillance, command and control, but deficiencies in communications networks, nodes and personnel makes this inadequate for managing an air defence posture in times of crisis. For air defence weapon systems, the Baltic states possess only legacy anti-aircraft guns and short-range missile systems. Together, these systems fall far short of the requirements for a robust, integrated air defence of Baltic territories in times of crisis or war. [..] But where shortfalls cannot reasonably be addressed by the three states, solutions that require actions from NATO collectively, or from the Allies individually or in groups should be implemented.[..]
vara bungas: Tas, ko es bieži saku, neviens nespēj īsā laikā nopirkt sev armiju, godīgi būtu pateikt sabiedrotajiem, (aiz)dodiet (nevis pārdodiet) mums PGA iekārtas, teritoriju piešķirsim, inru uzbūvēsim, ar informāciju dalīsimies, karavīrus (apkalpes) sagatavosim. PGA sistēmu jābūvē visam 3B reģionam kopīgu, te nevar būt tris sivēntiņu viensētas kā tas ir visās pārējās 3B militārās nesadarbības jomās.
