24
The Lithuanian Defense Ministry announced the arrival in the country of a new batch of UNIMOG trucks manufactured by Daimler AG, reports TSAMTO.



The 340 five-ton UNIMOG U5000 truck agreement was signed in 2015. The transaction was mediated by the NATO Support and Acquisitions Agency (NSPA). The contract is estimated at € 70 million. The price also includes the maintenance of vehicles for 15 years.

The first batch of 21 vehicles was delivered to the Lithuanian military department in the autumn of 2017. Currently, the troops are 88 trucks manufactured by Daimler AG.

In the near future, the Lithuanian Ministry of Defense will order the delivery of trucks for 2019 year. According to preliminary data, Daimler AG is ready to supply 110 vehicles next year. The rest of the 142 truck Lithuanian army should receive during 2020-2021's.



UNIMOG U5000 vehicles are supplied to ground forces units for transporting personnel, accomplishing troop logistics and other tasks.

It is noted that the need for the army in trucks has increased markedly after the creation of the second infantry brigade. In addition, UNIMOG U5000 come to replace the old machines that can not be repaired due to its deterioration.

      But the machine is good, for hunting and fishing, then :-)

      If they put it on an incomplete one, then in the ads on auto flea markets there would already be ads "not a bit, not beautiful ..." :-))))

      Apparently not, if:
      army demand for trucks has increased markedly after the creation of the second infantry brigade

      Moreover, it is the second formation:
      The Zemaitija Brigade already existed in the Lithuanian Army from 1999 to 2004, but was disbanded for financial reasons. The structure recreated now the team, in addition to management, included two battalions: stationed in Klaipeda Battalion named Lithuanian Grand Duke Butigeidis from the 1-Brigade and the mechanized battalion behalf of the Lithuanian Grand Duke Keistut stationed in Sakaline (Tauragė), and specializes in participation in operations abroad, ”the blogger writes, citing Lithuanian media.
      This year it is planned to form a reconnaissance company, a communications company and a logistics support battalion as part of the brigade. A year later, an artillery division and a new motorized infantry battalion should be formed. Fully brigade is supposed to be completed by 2021.

      Hello forum member. Where do you know this from? If not a secret, of course? The machine is very reliable and durable. At least from 2.2 liters. RELIABLE and repair suitable.

        I agree with you, the machine is really super, but you think about the number of 340, in a country that is small and fully provided with roads and means of transportation (there are no undeveloped regions there, there is seasonal slaughter), plus 15 years of service, is it not alarming?

      Where does the information about this number come from? Open sources indicate the number of 3 times more than you indicated .....

    It would be better to buy a tractor for agriculture. Europe will not give and feed money all the time. The whole economy that they got under the Union was ruined, but sometimes you really want to eat. recourse

    Are you sir sane? Unimog is one of the most traveled trucks in the world, and at the same time one of the most reliable and technologically advanced. You at least google before you write bullshit. And there is diesel, not gasoline :)
    And about reliability - the GUARANTEED PERIOD of OPERATION of this car - 30 years! Not to be confused with the warranty period. Therefore, it is very expensive, and in the same Europe it is used by public utilities, the military, LLC, etc., because they need a car for a long time.
    To understand what is expensive - buying and installing a winch on a given machine at a factory will cost you 35 thousand euros. The cost of the chassis is a six-figure sum.

    You can not like foreigners, but do not go down to the level of fools, and write nonsense about the car, which has been known for more than a decade in the world.
