    Lithuania decided to use the latest American SUVs

    Anyway, the old ones are written off, written off to buy! But for the same money ... With the subsequent opportunity to purchase new cars, but when they are already out of date!

      Yes, even below the article
      US requires Vilnius to start paying compensation to Lithuanian Jews

      There will be no shorter cars, the Jews must be completely compensated, and for the great Lithuanian economy it is impossible to extend two themes at the same timewassat

          This is essentially MRAP. Because It’s unlikely that they will be able to partisan themselves, the only logical use of them, in my opinion, is police functions in the occupied territories. Actually, all the armed forces of the tribalt are imprisoned for this function. Well, at least they think so. The owner may have his own plans for this cheap meat compared to old European meat.

      Again sand color set ...? Looks like there is an overabundance of such equipment in the USA .. The oil and gas regions of the BV sought to seize under the parade march!
      And there suddenly, from nowhere, “damn Russians” appeared and everything went awry ... heh heh soldier I remember Hitler also made plans after Russia was destroyed ..
      But these cars will come in handy in the future, when they will drape, it will be great to wet them and UAVs with drums, etc. will be noticeable and should explode well .. (although, okay, I'm silent ..))))

    Since when did the vassals begin to choose from the owner? What is asked to do shit from Afghanistan, there are so many ........... I would understand if Lithuania would offer money for them, otherwise it just becomes ridiculous. Maybe Lithuania still wants something like the LCS-6 type "Independence" (Independence)

      I’m afraid I won’t be able to buy anything without money. And Americans do not have free military assistance programs for Lithuania.
      So for the money.

            . Oshkosh L-ATV is an American army all-terrain vehicle (in other sources, an SUV) designed to replace the Humvee all-terrain vehicle in the US Armed Forces. The cost of one all-terrain vehicle is estimated at 399 US dollars.

            multiply by 200 pieces - yeah, fuck ... .... you need 80 mil, where they will vazmut them

              Less than a month ago, they concluded a contract for the supply of air defense systems. Approximately $ 130 million. Last year’s Boxers contract is generally under a half billion dollars.
              This is not a lump sum payment.

                  Next year, their military budget will be 873 million euros (approximately 1 billion dollars at the current rate). That is 2 percent of GDP with a penny. Initially requested 2.5% did not pass.
                  And this is on a relatively small sun. One mechanized brigade, two light infantry, one of them cropped. With virtually absent air force and microscopic navy

    As I understand it, the possibility of landing and transportation on the external suspension of the turntable is given out as a chip. You see, colleagues - for Lithuania this is a vital option! Any other equipment does not suit her, since she does not fit into the weapons system.

    What is this for? To carry out terrorist raids deep into Russian territory? In the event of war, you just need to burn out this bridgehead with the Grad or Tornado divisions, so that it would not be discouraged in the future.

    Decided to "receive" or decided to "purchase"? The nuance, however.
    To receive is hardly possible.
    To buy - money is necessary.
