          Ministry of National Defence to address the U.S. Government for an opportunity to acquire armoured all-terrain vehicles for the Lithuanian Armed Forces

          On November 7 Minister of National Defence Raimundas Karoblis met with Secretary of Defence of the United States James Mattis in Helsinki, Finland. He notified Defence Secretary J.Mattis on the decision of the MoD Defence Recourse Council to contact the U.S. Government regarding the possibility of buying Light Combat Tactical All-terrain Vehicles (L-ATV) manufactured by Oshkosh Defence. If the U.S. Government approves the request, Lithuania’s order will be delivered on together with orders of the United States and other countries’ armed forces. Cooperation with the U.S. Government would ensure Lithuania the best conditions for procurement and maintenance of the L-ATVs.

          Combat support multirole armoured ATVs will supplement and update the fleet of this type of vehicles and will be distributed across the Lithuanian Armed Forces. The least of 200 Light Combat Tactical All-terrain Vehicles is planned to be procured, while delivery times and price will depend on the contract (however, 2021 has been foreseen as the starting time for delivery).
          Also couple of videos from recent exercise "Iron Wolf II".

                  • Starting from 2nd Q 2018 Lithuanian Armed Forces are going to switch to another camo pattern (mixture of Lithuanian pattern and MultiCam-ish colors). This versions so far was mostly used in foreign missions so it's not entirely new.

                          Lithuania's Special Operations Forces going back to Afghanistan

                          VILNIUS, Feb 22, BNS – Lithuania has decided to bring back its Special Operations Forces (SOF) to Afghanistan after nearly three years to join the NATO operation Resolute Support that is intended to train and support local security forces.

                          "Troops of the Lithuanian Armed Forces' Special Operations Forces are planned to leave for their site of deployment in Kandahar in April," the Defense Ministry told BNS on Thursday.

                          Currently, 21 Lithuanian troops, mainly staff officers, serve in Afghanistan.

                          Lithuania's special operators operated in Afghanistan from 2002 to 2015.

                            Ministers of Defence of Lithuania and Germany Signed a Protocol of Intent on Affiliation of the Iron Wolf Brigade to a German Army Division

                            On the margins of NATO Ministerial Meeting taking place in Brussels on February 14-15, Minister of National Defence Raimundas Karoblis and Federal Minister of Defence Dr Ursula von der Leyen signed a Protocol of Intent on affiliation of the Mechanised Infantry Brigade Iron Wolf of the Lithuanian Armed Forces to a German Army division.

                            The flexible model of affiliation will enable the Iron Wolf Brigade to take part in exercises and training of both German divisions but the prioritised division will be the one that generates capabilities for the NATO enhance Forward Presence Battalion Battle Group.
                            http://kam.lt/en/news_1098/current_i..._army_division

                            The agreement enables ensuring that the Iron Wolf Brigade is ready to act within a higher military unit and its better interoperability with the German-led NATO enhanced Forward Presence Battalion Battle Group in Lithuania. Brigades of the Lithuanian Armed Forces have to be able to operate as part of a higher military unit but that ability can only be achieved through training with other countries’ armed forces that have divisions.

                              Lithuania to Buy Five Radars from IAI

                              The short-range air surveillance radars will be integrated into the joint Lithuanian airspace surveillance system. The deal is valued at €2.8 million

                              The Lithuanian Armed Forces signed a contract with IAI this month on procuring five short-range air surveillance radars and logistic maintenance services. The radars will be installed in Varėna, Švenčionys, Vilnius, Jurbarkas, and Pagėgiai.

                              Two of the radars are bought to compensate for the negatives impact wind farms developed in Šilutė and Tauragė districts have on the ability of the Lithuanian Armed Forces’ air surveillance radars to detect and track air targets.

                              Three companies applied for the tender of the Lithuanian Armed Forces for procuring short-range surveillance radars. IAI/ELTA was selected according to the price, costs of services after the warranty period, and technical parameters. The total price of the procured radars is around EUR 2.8 million (minus VAT).

                              Lithuanian helicopters back in service after causing uproar over Russian repair plans

                              VILNIUS, Mar 29, BNS - The Lithuanian Air Force's two Mi-8T helicopters that were at the center of a scandal over plans to repair them in Russia have been repaired and are back in service, the military said on Thursday.

                              "With the helicopters repaired, the Air Force can ensure the fulfillment of the Lithuanian Armed Forces' commitments to the nations taking part in NATO's air-policing mission, maintain the qualifications of helicopter pilots and partially meet other military training needs," Colonel Ramunas Titenis, acting Air Force commander, said in a press release.

                              The repaired helicopters will be used for search and rescue operations, for transporting troops and for medical evacuation and other tasks.

                              Both Mi-8Ts will also be used during this year's major military exercises in Lithuania and will support other military units in daily military training.

                              The helicopters were repaired by Helisota, a Lithuanian helicopter maintenance, repair and overhaul services provider, jointly with sub-contractors in Azerbaijan.

                                PRESIDENT TRUMP: I especially want to commend the Baltic nations on meeting their defense spending obligations this year for NATO, unlike some of the other countries, frankly, that haven’t met their obligations, but they will.
