The government is drawing up a 40-million-euro plan to improve facilities used by allied troops, a plan which could double the number of NATO troops stationed in Estonia.

The plan has four stages, of which the first is a 400-bed barracks in Tapa, with upgrades to the central training area, military equipment pre-positioning stations and a NATO quick reaction headquarters in Tallinn also in the cards, Postimees reported.

The funding for the four projects will be found outside of the 400-million (2.05 percent of GDP) defense budget, the government said, adding that six million euros must be found this year, and officials are already working on it.
