Lithuania announced its intention to purchase attack drones

62

Lithuania intends to arm itself with attack drones. As stated by the Minister of Defense of the Republic of the resident of Lithuania Arvydas Anusauskas, the issue with the acquisition of UAVs will be resolved in the near future.


As the minister explained, the Lithuanian army is armed with unmanned aerial vehicles, but all of them are not designed to strike, but perform reconnaissance and surveillance functions. Now, however, Lithuania needed attack drones, so a decision was made to purchase them.

We provide for the acquisition of combat drones of a new technological generation, which will be designed to destroy the enemy (...)

- said Anushauskas.

So far, the Lithuanian Ministry of Defense has not provided any additional information, so it is not known which drones they intend to purchase in Vilnius and in what quantity. But with regard to funds for drones, clarity has already appeared, funds additionally allocated for military needs will be spent on the purchase. The government of the republic proposed to increase military spending by $250 million.

Earlier in Lithuania, the purchase of Turkish Bayraktar TB2 attack drones was not ruled out. Statements of this kind were made in June 2021 immediately after the Turkish drones were purchased by Ukraine and Poland. At the same time, Lithuanian President Gitanas Nauseda met with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan in Brussels on the eve of the NATO summit, where they discussed the likely purchase of drones.

          But Belarusians still need to install additional radars.
          Because the Lithuanians will strike.
          Especially if the shock drone will be controlled by modern feminist transvestites.
          And you also need to have your own drones, armed with air-to-air missiles, so that at least one is constantly in the air.

          The goals and objectives for the Lithuanian army are set not in Vilnius, but in Brussels, based on the operational situation and costs ... for maintenance ...
          Lithuanians will not pull full-fledged Air Force for money, whoever all combat aircraft and helicopters of possible Lithuanian Air Forces will be destroyed, and UAVs are a cheap option, and training technicians and operators for them is less expensive, women can generally be operators .... and airfields they don't need...
          Dr. the point is that the empirialists are making a "fork" for us, UAVs can be used by Lithuania, both in Belarus and in the RF Corridor ....
          Means of dealing with shock drones are much more expensive than the drones themselves ....

        Lithuanians, like all the Balts, do not have the right to make independent decisions; they are controlled by the Armed Forces of Brussels and the United States. NATO only needs the territory of these sub-states against Russia.

        NATO will not save you guys. And if you manage to insult and humiliate the Russians less, then there is nothing to worry about. I understand that you need to somehow survive, but will soldiers from NATO bring you a lot of income? Maybe you need to apologize to the Russians, recognize them as full-fledged citizens of their country, and live with dignity at the expense of business and transit. However, it's up to you, decide for yourself. hi

      it's not about Bayraktars. But Ze will try to arrange a provocation, in the sense that they will send the Armed Forces of Ukraine at least one blow to the Baltic country, and it will turn out to be "Russia's attack on NATO." I think that it would be better for the Balts to build bridges with Russia as soon as possible. Even if they are members of NATO, NATO is unlikely to fit in for them. In words only.

    There is one way for Lithuania to maintain at least a semblance of independence, which is to sell for one ruble the railway from the Russian border to Kaliningrad, Russia, and free airspace for any Russian aircraft. This must be done before the end of the special operation in Ukraine, otherwise the special operation will begin with them. Does Lithuania need it? soldier

      Not 70 but 50 (bayraktar tb2), This is together with 2 control complexes, 6 devices, 200 bombs, training and training of personnel + technical support. And after you have bought 1 full package, you can only buy devices and shells. Apparatuses cost 5 million, shells from 30 to 50 thousand apiece. Considering the size of the country, 2 complete packages are enough in which there will be 4 control points. This is completely enough to use the devices throughout the country. And the planes themselves to 10k that in the kit you can still buy a drain. That is, approximately 50 + 50 is 2 sets + 12 devices and 10 devices separately + 3 lyamas for ammunition. This price of the 1st new f-35 is much more effective for the size of the country.

          Alas, electronic warfare is an easy target, as soon as they turn on, they give out their location, and given their number and price, this is not the best option from a drone. Yes, and they jam almost everything and the enemy, and their radio stations behind enemy lines, which is very dangerous for oneself. And most importantly, drones are switching to satellite communications, in 5 years EW will not be a problem for them. The defense industry also understands all this and therefore does not print in such quantities as other types of weapons.
