        Yeah. It is seen on the original spare parts money is not provided in the budget. Nothing, he and also those two that are for training, in which case they are torn apart.

          Is there a landfill in Lithuania with a suitable distance?

          Or will they come to an agreement with Latvia and Estonia and set goals on the northern border of Estonia?

        Apparently three already about ... bali)))
        On the way, they evaporated, so to speak, and they came up with the phrase "for parts."
        Suddenly, someone asks:
        “And where are three more?” It was paid three more !!!

      I don’t get it. Msta-S: ZOF45 high-explosive fragmentation shells are fired at a range of 24 m. The firing range of the ZOF700 active-reactive shells reaches 61 m. There is also the possibility of firing cluster shells containing 28 anti-tank submunitions. The firing range of such shells is 900 m. And this German prodigy spits 42 km with an ordinary projectile and 26 km with a missile. That is, it beats farther with a conventional projectile than we are active-reactive? Is that so? And they tell us about the strength of our weapons ... maybe I don’t understand something. Msta-S is the same classmate of the “German”, then why are we so inferior in terms of performance characteristics?

            Unfortunately, 2C3 Acacia is still full. And this is only 17 km and a relatively low combat rate of fire. And in some places there is also 2C1 Gvozdika (15,3 km and relatively low projectile power).

          Add my dime. When firing APC at the 2000th projectile spread reaches 1 (ONE) kilometer, which can be called "Shooting towards the target." Therefore, there is a shell, but it is not supplied to the BC.

        Those. as the "first snow" of ballistic marks of the NATO artillery barrels with a length of 39 (155 / L39) calibers (klb.) and 52 klb. the new standard (155/52), and the domestic 152/47 (2С19 Msta-S) and 152/28 (2С3 Acacia), while the characteristics of 152/47 reached 155/39, because the West did not force the transition to 155/52 , and over the ocean they froze the Cruzader program and are content with M109A6 HIP and A7 PIM. The race will begin after the adoption of 2C35 Coalition-SV. There are also non-standardized in NATO caliber 155/45 and French 155/40. Based on this, and study the performance characteristics of howitzers.

          How everything is launched on topwar!
          The domestic caliber 152/28 (2C3 Acacia) was superior to the American 155/23 base self-propelled guns M109, but not the M109A1 and subsequent modifications of the standard 155 / L39, caliber 152/47 only leveled the capabilities of Msta-S with the NATO self-propelled guns 155/39.
          Classmates-peers 2C19 Msta-S (152/47) are self-propelled guns such as M109A6 and British AS-90 (both standards 155/39), AUF.1 GCT (155/40, France), G6 (155/45, South Africa ), but not later PzH-2000 (155/52) with a difference of almost 10 years. Whose fault is it that to this day 2C19 has missed a number of upgrades (2C19M), including to the 2C33 level?

And left unscathed.
          And on Alytus weekdays in lieutenant youth I remember that if there are fewer labuses than 1:10, then there will definitely not be a fight. Regularly bounced in the back, something like "..kurvas bl ... dos parachutistas landing ..."but you turn around - pretended -" I'm not here lol

        In Germany, I also read about the fact that typhoons dismantle Eurofighters in order to support other eurofighters. In general, it seems to me from greed. What is the problem of buying fewer fighters, and for the money saved, buying spare parts for future use, so to speak?

          It is more profitable for the manufacturer to sell the whole thing than for spare parts. In the First World War, such a problem was with the Renault FT tank. 10 percent of the fleet was pulled out for spare parts because Renault did not produce spare parts.

      production discontinued.
      In my opinion, the last shipment was at 2009 under the joint project of Consorzio Iveco-Oto Melara and KMW.
      The line is mothballed.
      The Bundeswehr seems to have 185. Surplus.
      153 of these self-propelled guns upgraded to the PzH 2000 A1 level, with the rest of 31 transferred to storage (from where the systems for Croatia and Lithuania will be taken, another installation was decommissioned).


      therefore, they sell 16 like this + 3 for spare parts, and not A1, but old women

      Germans themselves do not have much: the 81 installation is active (consisting of four active artillery divisions + 9 training systems). They are trying to reanimate in order to bring the number of active to 122

    The speaker reports that instead of the machine guns of the GTK Boxer armored personnel carriers, painted sticks were used. Quote from Report Mainz magazine:

    I looked at Wikipedia to look at the Lithuanian army, in general among the Baltic countries they have the most powerful army, when compared with Latvia and Estonia:
    "As of 2011, the military budget of Lithuania amounted to 360 million US dollars, the total number of armed forces was 10,64 thousand. Personnel military personnel, 6700 reservists, another 14,6 thousand served as part of other militias.

    ground forces numbered 8,2 thousand troops (one quick reaction brigade, two motorized infantry battalions, two mechanized battalions, one engineer battalion, one military police battalion, one training regiment and several territorial defense units), 187 M113XN armored personnel carriers were in service; 1 BRDM-10; 2 133-mm field artillery guns; 105 61 mm mortar, up to 120 recoilless 100 mm Carl Gustaf guns, 84 ATGMs, 65 anti-aircraft guns and 18 man-portable air defense systems RBS-20, as well as over 70 anti-tank grenade launchers of various types.
    The air force consisted of 980 troops (three air bases and five squadrons), two L-39ZA aircraft, five transport aircraft (two L-410 and three C-27J) and nine Mi-8 transport helicopters.
    naval forces numbered 530 people, one small anti-submarine ship “Project 1124M”, three Danish Fluvefisken class patrol ships (P11 Zhemaitis, P12 Dzukas, P14 Aukšaitis), one Norwegian Storm patrol boat of class (P32 Skalvis), three other types of patrol boats, two English-built Lindau minesweepers (M53 and M54), one Norwegian-built mine-sweeping headquarters ship (Jotvingis), one hydrographic vessel and one tugboat.
    coast guard - 540 people and three patrol boats (N21, N22 and N23).
    In November 2013, a representative of the Department of Strategic Communication of the Lithuanian Army, Colonel-Lieutenant Arturas Jasinskas, said that in the event of an attack, the Lithuanian army "is able to wage an asymmetric war for a month and wait for help from the allies."
    The ground army is quite numerous, given the small country, the Navy, too, but the Air Force is a shame, there is not a single normal fighter. And there is no air defense system as such.

      There was not enough money for Patriot Pac-3 or MEADS. It’s not at all clear how they are building their army. No air force, no air defense, no electronic warfare systems. This means that with a potential attack, all of their ground forces will be quickly destroyed, guerrilla warfare will not help either, since EW will jam communications and coordinate ground operations will be impossible quickly.

        and the defense doctrine of the NATO periphery does not provide for deterring the aggressor on the external border. We would like to build the Grybauskaite Line. Probably, this fence-trench schizoidization of all has already passed, except for the hoax.

    Yes, they will soon even be sleeping in German helmets.
    In general, these self-propelled guns are not bad. Well, let them have 16 pieces for complacency. Will there be enough money for maintenance, operation, firing, etc.?

      Just a crooked translation. The rank of "Colonel-Lieutenant" in the armies of English-speaking countries corresponds to the rank of "Lieutenant Colonel" in the Russian-Soviet-Russian armed forces.
      Just like "Rear Admiral or Rear Admiral" is the "Vice Admiral" in our fleet.

    three for parts


    My question is: why buy 3 pieces for parts, isn’t it easier to buy parts themselves ??? Or is it cheaper for Lithuanians to buy self-propelled guns than spare parts? It turns out that the operation of the self-propelled guns themselves is designed for a short time ??? After all, if for the long term these self-propelled guns will be in the Lithuanian army, is it logical to conclude contracts for the supply of s / h for self-propelled guns ?? !!

    Correct me if I am wrong!

    Why is it all a country in which there are less than three million people? Judging by the description of their aircraft, they are not being pulled to conduct full-fledged military operations. Hold out a month is also nonsense.

    They would have bought a vigorous bomb, put it in a barn and called themselves a nuclear power!

    It somehow didn’t even come to mind that they were buying new ones, used ones - definitely, 21 units, 3 would be put in storage (in reserve), literally no one would rush to dismantle parts right away, only as needed. So do all countries buying a B / U fleet of military vehicles, also Finland (Leo-2).

    Have you bought? And there is something, and most importantly why? For example, you need to write off something. But you need to do it correctly. We will make a program of assistance to "partners" from eastern Europe. We give credit (not officially), we transport this "junk" to children who have not played enough in the war (self-propelled guns, well, there are a couple of boxes of shells). They claim that they bought it all (respect to the guys from Germany, they’re buying from them), and wow ... la

    They may not taste that little Lithuania is not going to fight with us alone. On the other side there will be many other states that are also arming themselves.

    So what? Now do we cry about this? Or shake with fear? Everything necessary for reflection is being done. Lithuania, like all the other new NATO members, is not a rival. Yes, and all of Europe has "subsided" by now, incl. all their “preparation” is a complete show-window and washing of “grandmas”.
