USA to supply Javelin ATGM to Lithuania "to increase the combat capabilities of the Lithuanian army"

56

The press service of the Ministry of Defense of Lithuania informs about the signing of the AOR (Defense Resources Agency) "an important agreement with American partners." We are talking about an agreement in which the agency, which is part of the structure of the Lithuanian Ministry of Defense, will acquire anti-tank missile systems from the United States.


The message says that it is Javelin ATGM and guided missiles for them.

The agreement provides for the supply of Javelin anti-tank missile systems to Lithuania in 2024.

From the message of the Lithuanian military department:

The Javelin anti-tank complex purchased from the United States makes a particularly significant contribution to increasing the long-term combat capabilities of the Lithuanian Armed Forces and enhancing the deterrent effect. These systems will be additionally provided to the Land Forces of the Armed Forces of Lithuania to strengthen the defense capability of Lithuania.


A few hours earlier, the Lithuanian Ministry of Defense, with enthusiasm, published a statement that "the US Congress presented a Christmas present." In Vilnius, this “gift” is understood as the adoption by the American congressmen of a decision to allocate $ 168 million for the so-called BIB (Baltic Security Initiative).

Lithuania states that the new military-technical and financial support from the United States will make it possible to more effectively build a security system on the eastern borders of NATO and resist potential aggression. There is no mention of a specific "potential aggressor", but taking into account the rhetoric of the Lithuanian authorities of all recent years, it is not difficult to guess against whom the Republic of Lithuania is arming itself.

        Don't want to join the heroic (posthumous) crew of the tank that this will fly into? And we, I promise, will forgive and remember you. Grunting is not always appropriate, "marshal nullified."

              Do you know how to read? Or have you only learned the letters, but you cannot add them to words? I expressed my doubt that the Lithuanians would shoot at the tanks, and not at you, and I have reason for this, you see, the tank may not respond well, but you are unlikely.

            Communities of interest, sects, on the site, it seems that there are ... but not so numerous, not very organized.

        Hi Vyacheslav soldier
        Fighter pose ... okay, let prostatitis work or whatever, unpleasant.
        As far as I remember, it was only in the Hollywood blockbuster that the bandyugan launched the "jaba" while standing ... and so, in nature, they sit and launch it.
        That's how she is, capricious.

          Vitya, I'm not an expert, but it seems to me that it will be more convenient to shoot from the knee. Moreover, you can quickly slide into a trench or other fortified shelter.

            They showed how a striped military man launched him from his knee, BUT, it was a sergeant, an experienced, besides, a strong Negro under two meters and weighing like a fighter in heavy weight ... not for the average fighter.

              Vitya, thanks for the answer. But isn't the ankle-foot, or the knee-foot (or whatever they call it?) Not stronger than the fifth point? Why does the level stand on three legs? Mother's most reliable support on Earth.

                Vyacheslav, if you remember the jokes about the minke whales, there is one that says on their coffee cup that it is HOT ... it's not casual!
                Yankees are simple guys, practical, and if the manufacturer indicated in the instructions that it is necessary to shoot this way, they will teach everyone the same way!
                And for the manufacturer, the guaranteed accuracy of the product is important, and if experience, tests have shown that the average fighter gives the best performance from a sitting position, so they will write in the instructions, ONCE and FOREVER!

          They "are dying of hunger" since about the 90s, as the Union collapsed and have been dying for 30 years. And all that remained from the USSR was gobbled up and emigrated "to wash toilets", and whoever remained, they die. They will probably die for the next 30 years - the standard of living is getting higher, but ... they will definitely die.

                  They live in principle despite Lukashenka, who raves about any 20 percent of Lithuania's budget if he refuses transit. Approximately the same happened with the Russian Federation - the share of Lithuanian exports to Russia, about 15 percent. In terms of investments in Lithuania, the Russian Federation seems to be in 16th place. In other words, they wanted to sneeze at threats of an economic nature, while the military perceived without hysteria - 2 percent. with something from the GDP and are slowly arming themselves.

    "To increase the combat capabilities of the Lithuanian army" it is necessary that, at least, there be at least some kind of army.
