First Vilkas Infantry Fighting Vehicles Officially Handed Over to Lithuania

 (Source: Lithuania Ministry of Defence, issued July 09, 2019)


Known as Vilkas in Lithuania, the Boxer infantry combat vehicle will replace the obsolete M-113 wheeled armored personnel carriers used by the Lithuanian army. (LT Army photo)

 On July 9 first two of the 88 Vilkas Infantry Fighting Vehicles (IFVs) produced to the Lithuanian Armed Forces by a German manufacturer were formally handed over to Lithuania. The IFVs will be designated to the Lithuanian Grand Duke Algirdas Mechanised Infantry Battalion of the Mechanised Infantry Brigade Iron Wolf. The purchase fills in a capability gap in the Lithuanian Land Force.

“This is one of the most ambitious projects of upgrading the Lithuanian Armed Forces in the recent years, it will help ensuring the security of Lithuania for several decades to come,” Minister of National Defence Raimundas Karoblis said at the formal handover ceremony.

 Minister underscored that “such a significant qualitative leap that strengthens our capabilities with modern weaponry matched to our needs demonstrates the responsibility we take the security situation with, the adequacy of our response and our readiness for defence.”

 “However, today it is probably even more important and relevant to send a message to the Lithuanian society as well — we have paid too much for the freedom and independence already to afford to be stopped by the Vilkas project. A safe and strong Lithuania needs strong armed forces, and that requires a fundamental updating. Strong and modern armed forces is also our duty, our responsibility to our state, the future of our children, and to everyone who fought for the freedom of Lithuania,” Minister R. Karoblis stressed.

 Chief of Defence of Lithuania Lt Gen Jonas Vytautas Žukas underscored that “the message that we are taking care of the security of our country responsibly and that we are ready to rebuff at short notice will be significantly more convincing from now on.”

 “The M-113 armoured personnel carriers we have been using can only bring troops to the battlefield and ensure fire support. In comparison, the Vilkas IFVs will not only transport soldiers quickly and safely but will also engage in a battle by neutralising armoured and unarmoured targets effectively at the distance of up to 4 kilometres,” Lt Gen J. V. Žukas said.

 The Vilkas IFVs have been made by a German manufacturer ARTEC according to the requirements of the Lithuanian Armed Forces. The vehicles have Israeli-made remote weapon station turrets, U.S.-made 30 mm MK-44S cannons and Israel’s Spike LR anti-tank missiles, and other integrated specialised equipment and electronic systems.

 According to the EUR 385.6 million contract made in 2016 by the IFV manufacturer ARTEC and the Organisation for Joint Armament Cooperation (OCCAR), all 88 Vilkas IFVs purchased by Lithuania will be delivered to the Lithuanian Armed Forces until late 2021.

 Serial production of the fighting vehicles for the Lithuanian Armed Forces was started after a year of intense testing in training areas and testing centres of Germany and the Netherlands.

 The combination of the Vilkas IFV firepower, manoeuvrability and crew protection meets the demands of the Lithuanian Armed Forces best in terms of national defence and international deployments.

 The Vilkas IFVs will be used by units of the Mechanised Infantry Brigade Iron Wolf — Lithuanian Grand Duke Algirdas Mechanised Infantry Battalion and the Grand Duchess Birutė Uhlan Battalion.

 Lithuania, together with the Netherlands and Germany, is a part of the IFV Boxer Supply and Maintenance Program of the NATO Support and Procurement Agency (NSPA). It ensures an appropriate logistical provision of the infantry fighting vehicles bought by the Lithuanian Armed Forces — the possibility to use collective IFV spare parts and central depots and repair capabilities for principal IFV systems, to receive technical and engineer support, etc., when the IFVs are operated by the Lithuanian Armed Forces.

 The Lithuanian Armed Forces have also been using two Boxer DTVs without the weaponry systems specifically for training military drivers since 2017. The initial in-service logistical support package includes spare parts, support and test equipment, technical and training documentation, and training equipment is also received.

 In order to keep the link with the history of Lithuania and traditions of the Lithuanian Armed Forces, it was agreed by the IFV manufacturer and Lithuania that the IFVs produced according to Lithuania’s requirements would be called “Vilkas” instead of “Boxer.”

 Os lituanos acabaram de encomendar 500 JLTV. Nós para encomendar 192 viaturas Uro, foi aquela palhaçada do concurso em que não apareceram os fornecedores.

 Já estão a receber os 88 Boxer's 8x8 todos equipados com uma torre Samson Mk.2 com um canhão de 30mm e lançador de misseis SPIKE. Não há cá viaturas com o atirador descoberto e à vista das miras do inimigo e equipado com Brownings que estava no armazém. Para não falar dos OAP PzH2000.
 Receberam igualmente 350 Unimogs novinhos em folha. Drones a sério ScanEagle etc.

 Já se pode dizer que um exército que há 10 anos era praticamente inexistente. Está melhor equipado que o nosso (também não é preciso muito).

Isso... de facto a capacidade das nossas FA não está nas nossas prioridades - e julgo que cada vez pior, pois os poucos recursos cada vez mais serão para "duplo uso" e para manter sempre que possível os graduados suficientemente bem pagos para não haver "reivindicações" (e, parece-me, cada vez mais eles assumem o vestir a farda como um emprego publico e menos como uma vocação... e organizados para isso).

Agora... como outro outro perguntava "where does he get those wonderful toys?" eu pergunto de onde vem o dinheiro para os Lituanos terem isso tudo...?

Os amigos do "Project for The New American Century" e seus sucessores devem certamente dar-lhes uma ajuda.
Ai de ti Lusitânia, que dominarás em todas as nações...

Lithuania is Expecting to Sign an Agreement with the U.S. on the Purchase of Armored Tactical Vehicles by the End of This Year
 (Source: Lithuania Ministry of Defence; issued Aug 28, 2019)

“With the U.S. Government lighting the green light for Lithuania to acquire 200 armored Joint Light Tactical Vehicles (JLTV), we are moving to bilateral contract coordination. We intend to sign it before the end of this year,” says Vice-Minister of the Ministry of National Defence Giedrimas Jeglinskas.

 The U.S. Government has given permission to Lithuania to buy 500 JLTVs, but Lithuania plans to buy 200. A larger number of JLTVs is foreseen in case if Lithuania decides to purchase more for the needs of its Armed Forces.

 The Ministry of National Defence as early as February this year had submitted procurement applications to the Government of the United States of America concerning acquisition and maintenance of 200 JLTVs for the Lithuanian Armed Forces.

 These armored tactical vehicles will increase the mobility, security and combat power of the Lithuanian Armed Forces. The Ministry of National Defence in 2020-2024 plans to allocate about $ 142 million euros for the acquisition and maintenance of JLTVs.

 The Defence Materiel Council of the Ministry of National Defence found the U.S.-manufactured JLTVs to meet the price-performance ratio best in late 2017, and the negotiations on their procurement were opened with the U.S. Government. The JLTVs will augment and upgrade the car fleet of the corresponding type the Lithuanian Armed Forces and will be distributed among its units.

 The JLTVs are a significant part of the Lithuanian Armed Forces mechanisation programme, also encompassing procurement of the Vilkas/Boxer infantry fighting vehicles. The Lithuanian Armed Forces identified a shortage of armoured all-terrain vehicles taking into account potential threats and the need of such vehicles for completing national defence tasks and deploying to multinational operations. The shortage is a result of natural wear and tear of the present fleet and also because the need increases due to the expanding Armed Forces.
 Currently the Lithuanian Armed Forces uses HMMWV and Toyota Land Cruiser 200 armoured all-terrain vehicles.

The United States is Lithuania’s strategic partner and key ally for the security of the Baltic region. The U.S. actively participates in the implementation of the Assurance Measures in the Baltic states thus strengthening security and stability in the region. The country contributes soldiers, equipment and finance to the defence of our region.

 According to the European Deterrence Initiative, the financial support for strengthening defensive capabilities and improving military infrastructure of European countries, including Lithuania, is consistently increased by one third every year. The U.S. is also among the main partners in weaponry procurement. Lithuania is acquiring anti-aircraft missiles, turrets for combat vehicles, Javelin anti-tank systems, and other equipment from U.S. manufacturers, aside from the JLTVs.

US approves possible JLTV sale to Lithuania
Samuel Cranny-Evans, London - Jane's Defence Weekly 02 September 2019

The US State Department on 27 August approved the possible Foreign Military Sale of Joint Light Tactical Vehicles (JLTVs) to Lithuania for an estimated USD170.8 million, the Defense Security Cooperation Agency (DSCA) announced in a news release the same day.

The agency said Lithuania requested 500 JLTVs in the M1278A1 heavy gun carrier configuration, as well as unspecified quantities of M153 Common Remote Weapon Stations (CROWS), MK-93 weapons mounts, and M2 12.7×99 mm heavy machine guns. The request also includes ballistic and blast protection kits, Boomerang III shot detection systems, stand-alone GPS kits, and training and related equipment, as well as technical and logistics support services.

The Lithuanian Ministry of National Defence (MND) said on its website on 28 August that Lithuania plans to buy 200 JLTVs but more are foreseen if they are required by its armed forces.

Lithuanian Vice-Minister of National Defence Giedrimas Jeglinskas officially requested 200 JLTVs during a meeting with US Undersecretary of Defense for Acquisition and Sustainment Ellen Lord. The Lithuanian MND said on its website at the time that contract negotiations were expected to conclude in 2020, followed by first deliveries in 2021. However, the ministry said on its website on 28 August that contract negotiations are expected to conclude by the end of this year.

Army of Lithuania takes delivery of 110 Unimog U5000 light trucks


On September 26, 2019, the Lithuanian Armed Forces accepted 110 Unimog U5000 trucks of 5t payload manufactured by Germany’s Daimler AG as it is updating its truck fleet with vehicles of the same make as there already are in the fleet.

The trucks are delivered on the basis of a contract signed back in 2015 though continuing successful cooperation of the Ministry of National Defence and the NATO Support and Procurement Agency (NSPA). 88 such trucks have already been delivered to the Lithuanian Armed Forces; the contract covers the acquisition of the total of 340 new Unimog trucks.

“The NSPA collects demand applications from all NATO allies and is able to carry out acquisitions in bulk which cuts the price of one unit significantly,” Director of the Defence Materiel Agency under the Ministry of National Defence Sigitas Dzekunskas said.

Head of the Daimler AG truck project Dr Martin R. Maier underscored at the handover ceremony the reliability of the trucks and their exceptionally long service life.

The contract between the Lithuanian Armed Forces and the Daimler AG German manufacturer foresees logistical support in the first 15 years of operation, specialized tools and testing equipment, and other guarantees. The value of the contract in total is EUR 70 million.

The 110 have been delivered to the Lithuanian Armed Forces on the basis of the contract on the Unimog truck acquisition between the Defence Materiel Agency under the MoD and the NATO Support and Procurement Agency updated in 2018.

Daimler AG is committed to delivering the remaining 142 trucks in 2020-2021.

The new tactical 5-ton trucks will be assigned to the Lithuanian Land Force and other units to supplement equipment fleets of the same technical characteristics that Lithuanian troops are well familiar with.

A truck is one of the most common vehicles in the military that is in great demand. This type of vehicle is used for completion of soldiers’ tasks, logistical support, personnel transportation.
