Lithuania buys around 100 BMP in Germany

50
Preparations for the purchase of 100 combat vehicles in Lithuania are carried out transparently and in accordance with the law, said Arturas Paulauskas, head of the parliamentary committee on national security. His words referring to the Interfax-AVN newspaper MIC.




“The whole procedure is carried out properly, in accordance with the laws and transparently,” said Paulauskas to the press.

The cost of the transaction, he said, will be about € 300 million.

In turn, the head of the Ministry of Defense Juozas Olyakas said that "the Council of State Defense on the acquisition of the BMP will be convened in October."

Permission from the government to hold a competition for the purchase of infantry fighting vehicles, the Lithuanian military received last August. If the deal goes through, it will be the largest in stories Lithuanian aircraft.

Doubts about the transparency of the tender arose after the statement of the director of the Association of Defense Industry Valdas Tutkus, who said in an open letter that "a year ago he knew that the choice would fall on the German BMP Boxer." According to him, the price of Boxer can be 35% higher than the offers of other companies. ” In addition, Tutkus claims that Artec, which offered the Boxer armored vehicles, "rejected requests from Lithuanian companies to assist in the maintenance of infantry fighting vehicles".

Olyakas rejected all these suspicions, stating that the cars were “selected from several options.” And army commander Jonas-Vytautas укаukas noted the absurdity of the statement about inflated prices. “The Boxer price cannot be 35% higher than offers from other companies,” he said.

        Well, depending on what you measure. two battalions - this is a thousand coffins (or funerals, or awards - depending on where they "stick")
        I don’t understand why they need BMP. Comfortable draping on buses.

        and even better not to scoop, but try to find a common language with opponents. better a bad world than a good war

        It is easier to say that the 100 BMP / BTR is a brigade, such as the 17 Russian (Chechnya) - 129 MT-LB.

      A cat in a poke with 35% mzdoy, without those services. Cool sawing loot in Lithuania, according to European. Without maintenance, it is scrap. You can’t buy spare parts for military equipment in a store.

        Nu-nu, the ancient nation itself has already bribed, though in England, armored cars. Here the same thing, the Germans die illiquid assets to Labus, and even for the loot. True, the Labus are more fortunate, they have at least the same movement with the Germans, so the steering wheel will be on the right side, unlike armored cars for the d.urkaints

        In Lithuania, there is the Iron Wolf motorized infantry brigade, which is armed with more than a hundred obsolete armored personnel carriers. New equipment will go there. The old equipment will be used by the newly formed infantry brigade. And the picture for the article is wrong. Lithuanians will get a machine with 30mm (Pumovskiy) mode.

        I agree that the deal is far from "transparency", but the machine is of interest

    The Germans are ready to master your extra money. Maybe something else to order? It will not help you anyway, but the chances at your expense will be accepted by a couple of thousand refugees and sent to you in a friendly manner. You are not against EU solidarity. And on the BMP for mushrooms, for example, you can go. Only in the forest do not get lost ...

      A BMP and should be triple.
      It is dangerous to transport infantry into them (if they are not heavy BMP),
      but they can support infantry on earth.

    Why do they even need BMP? BMP without a tank - money down the drain! Who will Lithuania fight in the BMP?
    MRAP would have been enough for them, a module with a machine gun / grenade launcher / ATGM was installed. The resource is like a truck, spare parts are civilian. The funny thing is, the combat effectiveness in their theater will not be worse.

    1 Boxer BMP costs 3 million euros. For comparison, recently on the RT website there was an article about the cost of tanks, so the T-14 Armata costs about $ 3,7 million (250 million rubles). And then BPM, what diamonds do they use in armor?
