Lithuania intends to purchase more 74 Javelin installations

64
The United States Department of Defense Military Cooperation Agency (DSCA) has sent a notification to Congress about the upcoming supply of Lithuania with an additional batch of anti-tank systems Javelin, the blog reports bmpd with reference ajor-arms-sales.




“The planned delivery will include XaNumX Javelin mobile launchers (Command Launch Units - CLU), Javelin 74 anti-tank missiles and ten training missiles. The total estimated cost of delivery will be $ 220 million, of which the actual cost of the equipment is $ 55 million, and the rest is the cost of American technical assistance, transportation, training, etc., ”the publication says.

The delivery of missile systems to Lithuania has already been approved by the US State Department.

According to bmpd, "Lithuania became the first foreign customer to Javelin ATGM, having received 2001 launchers and 18 ATGM from the USA by agreement of 74 of the year."

The blogger recalls that last year the United States approved the delivery of 102 Estonia Javelin launchers. The units were attached 350 combat and 102 training missiles.

        Well yes. The usual scheme that worked back in the USSR. We do not support or supply weapons to anyone. But it has the right to supply (Czechoslovakia, Yugoslavia, etc., etc.). The question is where will they go?

          Any supply contract includes permission or prohibition of sale or transfer to third parties. So first find out the terms of delivery, and then draw conclusions.

            I beg you ... After a moratorium on the external (sovereign) state debt of Ukraine and the IMF decision (this is purely an example), will you talk about some ridiculous arms supply agreements? It seems to me, apart from Russia and its allies, now in general no one in the world complies with international agreements and they wanted to spit on our interests.

    Javelins are good where the tanks do not have infantry support.

    In an open area, the calculations will knock out from a long distance ...
    at close range in urban battles, the infantry copes well with the task of covering tanks ... for every scrap there is another scrap.
    Tanks now have active defense and it is not so easy to destroy them with javelins ...
    the javelins are well-publicized, but they have no serious combat practice.

        Give me statistics ...
        how many and under what circumstances were destroyed by javelins in iraq?
        Further ... how the use of javelins influenced the military operation with the use of tanks.
        Anyone can talk about nonsense, but there is no serious analysis of the use of javelins.

        That’s what is actively used in IRAQ because it’s our good old RPG and CORNETS ... well, the Americans also threw their old TOU stockpiles by the militants .... so you shouldn’t talk about nonsense.

        Read what dill they write about your almighty ... heh hehe Javelin.

        A big drawback of the JAWELINS is their high cost and if we take into account that the battles will be fought by large masses of troops, our RPGs and KORNETS win against this background ... a dozen Javelins or a hundred Kornets per square kilometer is better 7

        In addition to these Javelins for the Lithuanian Armed Forces, next year it is planned to receive the first German Boxer BMPs, some of which are supposed to be re-equipped with Spike ER missiles. And about the fact that "we are not going to climb", then on this score, I have a somewhat different opinion.

      The Javelin missile has a tandem cumulative warhead with armor penetration of 700 millimeters of armor - dynamic protection on the tank’s roof will not save her.

      Firstly, the Lithuanians focus on heavy infantry operating from ambush and from defense. "Jewels" work up to 4 km, "Spikes" on "Boxer" ah up to 6 km. It should be borne in mind that these are 3 generation ATGMs and they can work on external target designation. T / e without being in line of sight of the target.

    Good Javelins or not, in fact, it does not matter. All three Baltic countries are actively rearming + Leopards were brought to Finland. (There are no tankers in the required quantity, tanks will be put in storage in hangars). Plus annual exercises WITH ACCOMMODATION OF NATO AND AIRCRAFT FAST RESPONSE Troops in the Baltic States. I translate - weapons in warehouses, barracks, airfields are ready to receive troops. On the border with Russia - near St. Petersburg and the Kaliningrad region. Continue to joke and throw slippers?

        No matter how unpleasant, but WHEEL is right, Javelin is a serious thing. One thing is not clear, why did he surrender to the paid? Well, sprinkle with saliva, pour out bile they are experts, but it's free, safe (who needs them), though no one pays any attention. But pay such money for unnecessary weapons what ...
