U.S. aid for Jordan for each of the next three years has been boosted to $1 billion, from $660 million in 2014. In addition to the Javelin sale, Washington has recently agreed to sell Jordan Hellfire anti-tank missiles; 92 Cougar armored personnel carriers; 100 Paveway laser-guided bombs, and a new targeting system for its F-16 fighter jet fleet. Jordan is one of the two sites where the Pentagon is spending more than half a billion dollars to train Syrian rebels to fight Islamic State.

Ties between U.S. and Estonia are strong as well, amid tensions with Russia. Last month, approximately 200 Reservists, Air National Guard and active duty Airmen with eight A-10 Thunderbolt IIs from Whiteman Air Force Base, Missouri, landed at Amari Air Base, Estonia, the U.S. demonstrating continued commitment to collective security through a series of actions designed to reassure NATO allies and partners of America's dedication to ensuring peace and stability in the region.

The FGM-148 Javelin is a man-portable fire-and-forget anti-tank missile system produced in U.S. by Raytheon and Lockheed Martin. For now, it has been delivered to almost 18 different armed forces.
