Lithuania purchased 200 armored SUVs JLTV 4X4

JLTV 4x4 in the M1278A1 Heavy Guns Carrier modification with the M153 CROWS combat module


Lithuania has finally signed an agreement with the United States on the supply of 200 American armored SUVs JLTV (Joint Light Tactical Vehicle). This was reported by the press service of the Ministry of Defense of the republic.

According to published information, the contract will cost 145 million euros, the first armored vehicles should be delivered to Lithuania by the end of the 2021 year, and the last by the 2024 year. The equipment will be used by the Army and Special Forces of the Republic.

It should be noted that this agreement provides an option for 300 armored vehicles, since the United States initially wanted to sell Lithuania 500 light armored vehicles JLTV. However, in Lithuania they stated that they would like to purchase all 200 of such armored vehicles.

A notice of readiness to sell Lithuania 500 Light Armored Vehicles Joint Light Tactical Vehicle (JLTV) with the wheel formula 4X4 in the M1278A1 Heavy Guns Carrier modification was approved by the US Congress in early September this year.

The vehicles planned for delivery to Lithuania will be equipped with M153 Common Remote Weapon Stations (CROWS) remotely controlled combat modules with 12,7-mm M2 QCB machine guns and round-the-clock M230 TAC-FLIR sighting systems. The agreement provides for the supply of spare parts for armored vehicles and training of personnel of the Lithuanian army.

Negotiations on the purchase of JLTV have been conducted by Lithuania with the American side since the end of the 2017 year.

        It’s just that the white gentleman needs money. And then it’s rubbish with orders. 145 million Eureks, too, money and not frail. The question is where did the Baltic states come from?

            It should be noted that this agreement provides an option for another 300 armored vehicles, since initially the USA wanted to sell to Lithuania exactly 500 light armored vehicles JLTV. However, Lithuania stated that would like to purchase a total of 200 such armored vehicles

        Do you think this is fun? If the "dwarf" state will have 500 units. how many will be in service with all the Baltic "geeks"? And most importantly, how many such models are in service with the Russian Armed Forces. To, it’s very unfortunate and annoying. The way to ernism will disappear.

          This is a classic "anti-Papuan" technique. In clashes with the regular army - near-zero value. And when used outside units with serious armor, even negative. Its only place in such a war is the barn of a non-transparent. And pray to God not to be noticed. Krupnyak, hidden in the green, and he is more dangerous. At least it is not as noticeable as this barn on wheels, with the size of the tank and armor from a can with a forfeit. Actually for the RF Armed Forces, a threat of the same order as a jihad mobile, with a self-made turret on the roof.

            This is a vehicle and special chassis. And here you compare a good car with a regular army. How can a car (piece of iron) collide with a regular army? You still compare who will win the pillar or regular army.

              This piece of iron costs money. Serious. Plus, these pieces of iron are minus the BMP / BTR brigade, or tank battalion. The Lithuanian army has a deficit of adequate armored personnel carriers. BMP and tanks are absent. Replacing antique M 113s, or introducing a tank battalion into their staff, would be really unpleasant. But 500 pieces of iron ... With one brigade of 4 battalions? The sleep of reason. They stupidly have no place in the Lithuanian Armed Forces. What nafig chassis? Lithuania has only 8.000 in the ground forces, and from them to carve out 500 crews of these sheds?
              So yes, the pillar defeated the army.

                Why such an army of armored personnel carriers and infantry fighting vehicles? Maybe they still have an aircraft carrier? Do you apparently think that they are going to attack the Russians with a tank wedge? For such an army, guerrilla warfare, sabotage and urban fighting will be an adequate tactic. And for these purposes, these, as you put it, sheds will be more adequate. And not 500 but two hundred. 500 Americans are trying to sell them the more they sell the better.
                Well, with regards to oskoshev. In the American army, vehicles have always been a strong place. When we mainly stomped to Berlin, the Americans drove jeeps in two. When we drove the infantry mainly in trucks, they were transplanted to hamers protected from riflemen. And JLTV is not a shed on wheels but a very modern multi-functional platform (perhaps the best in the class). I’m silent about the fact that our army is mainly transplanting to similar platforms and, unlike the Americans, we have complete unification in this matter.

          Well, they will be armed with a couple of thousand of these machines (which is doubtful, given their ability to pay, most likely only 500 for three), and so what? Such machines, it seems to me, in today's major conflict are applicable only in the anti-partisan war. In a collision with a serious army, they will be knocked out immediately. So, for Russia they are not dangerous. But on the armament of the RF Armed Forces, I think there are a lot of similar vehicles: there are still Soviet BRDM, Tigers ... There are a huge number of armored personnel carriers, infantry fighting vehicles that can also perform similar tasks ...

            Do you think the purpose of these vehicles is to launch a frontal attack on tanks? Maybe you think that when confronted with a modern army GAZ-66 for infantry is preferable and they will not be knocked out right away? Maybe you have in mind a certain child prodigy for transporting infantry, so do not hesitate to write to us here.

            What conflict are your conclusions based on?

            PS
            1982 The tank brigade (not partisan army) was stopped by these means. Moreover, the brigade has lost no equal in the world T-72. EMNIP is the first combat loss of the T-72. The anti-tank forces had no casualties.

      interesting, but Zu-23, armor-piercing it will not take? one turn so in 3-5 shots .. well, from 5 1-2 hits will be ... otherwise the RPG will have to let such a machine too close. the M-2 turret stands, with an aiming range greater than that of the RPG-7. I think Zushka will just calm him down ... if you work with 2 barrels, one armor-piercing, and the other with lighters, then that's enough for him. it’s enough to interrupt the chassis and they will abandon it themselves.

          Well. I agree, from the bottle and the tanks are burning request ... but the bottle must be thrown .and get. purely theoretically, let’s throw a bottle by 20 meters, I don’t think further ... and the Zu-23 from 2 km will deceive it yes I remember in the army they shot from RPG18 Mucha and LOU. M271, a grenade launcher similar to it, only American. 5-3 out of 4 were fired. and 1-2 pieces were always cut short. melee weapons and last hope as they say. if the RPG still hit somewhere, then the LOU was visible as the wind blows the grenade to the side. LOU, but you can fold it again. If you change your mind about shooting, and if you opened the RPG, cocked it, then shoot it, it doesn’t fold back winked therefore immediately ZU-23 came to mind as an antidote from any armored husk. I'm from Zu-23 with 5 shells, carried by Stayer, a truck. cut him in half. in 2003, I went to the training camp, changed my profession. there used to be a driver mechanical driver on the M-113. Then he served as a machine gunner in the compartment. then the operator of the ATGM Fagot-Competition (the Germans gave us their bassoons in 1990) and in 2003 they called for training and transferred to Zushka. Zu-23 is a good gun. I liked it. good

    It should be noted that this agreement provides an option for 300 armored vehicles, since the United States initially wanted to sell Lithuania 500 light armored vehicles JLTV. However, in Lithuania they stated that they would like to purchase all 200 of such armored vehicles.

    Lithuania purchased 200 armored SUVs JLTV 4X4

    The terrible scenarios of the capture by Russia of the sovereign principality of Lithuania paint themselves, and what is the result? Is that how they intend to fend off an aggressive neighbor or have they prepared a transport capable of taking out all the Lithuanian leadership and treasury? Poor nutrition - poor imagination ...
    We are not afraid ...

    Well, Americans are true to themselves. Nate sold R4 Global Hawk in the amount of 5 pieces, but they decided to abandon them because they are useless in the war with Russia or China. Same thing with JLTV. One can hardly expect anything else from them. For them, always in the first place, the economic component is important. Military marketers, damn it.

    The whole country will fit in 200 cars. For the Lithuanian army and 3 cars, enough.

    They would cooperate with Latvia and issue the RAF on the mountain in armor and body kit. Here the adversaries would die!

    In return, these labs were given free money, and they spent it on the purchase of striped equipment, that is, in fact they returned the money back. And they themselves will remain with these pieces of iron and again the maintenance costs. So they rot and they have, because there are no fools to attack the wretched.

    And if you run through the western neighbors
    Finland 35000 people are likely to stand up for them NATO
    Latvia 6500 NATO
    Estonia 6500 NATO
    Poland 105000 NATO
    Ukraine 255000
    Lithuania 20000, NATO
    So against them, you must also set at least a commensurate number of people. And part will die. remember Chechnya. There we also had a large army. And here there will be already organized resistance, there will be more losses. At best, they will make up 5%, and it will already be thousands of people.
    That's why they are strengthening the army as best they can, not with outdated equipment, but with a new armored car so that the stakes for Russia are higher.

    Of course, we, with our millionth army and equipment, will capture any neighbor. But then NATO will harness. NATO costs $ 900 billion, our 65 billion 3,2 million people versus our 1 million, they have a stronger economy and a larger mobilization reserve.
    So, by and large, the Baltic states may not have soldiers, since they are protected.

      Well, you break the people high. They have long thrown NATO caps. And in general, the grenades of Nata are not of that system.

    Well, hold on Russia, now you have a competitor in your troops soon. One question is how long to wait for the development of the Lithuanians, and we will master quickly.
