According to a message from the Lithuanian Ministry of Defense, Lithuania has again ordered G36 assault rifles from Heckler & Koch, adding to the existing stock. According to the contract signed by the Defense Materiel Agency on September 30, rifles are to be delivered for around 19 million euros in the period from 2022 to 2023.

The G36 has been the standard rifle of the Lithuanian armed forces in various versions since 2003.

"The technical and tactical parameters of the G-36 meet the requirements of the Lithuanian armed forces and ensure that the weapon is reliable under various tactical conditions to meet the requirements of national and international military operations," stated Defense Minister Arvydas Anušauskas.
