From Ria Novosti: U.S. F-15E Strike Eagle fighter jets will take part in two-stage military exercises in Estonia and Lithuania aimed at improving interoperability and combat readiness of NATO forces in the Baltic region.

The aircraft from the 494th Fighter Squadron based at the Royal Air Force base in Lakenheath (U.K.), will leave their base on Monday and land in Tallinn to later join the Estonian Scouts battalion and air defense personnel in drills to practice tactical air support for ground troops.
