The documents will embed the ambition of the Lithuanian Land Force Headquarters to develop a division-level command and control (C2) capability within the Lithuanian Land Force Headquarters.

Army representatives say it is necessary to ensure the ability of the HQ not only is able to command the Land Force but is also able to do so once allied units join.

The Lithuanian army does not have divisions in its structure as the largest existing units are brigades.

"We are developing a HQ that will be able to control division-level units. It's important not only in terms of the structure of the Lithuanian Land Force but also in terms of attached allied units we would need to control during exercises or in case of conflicts," Captain Paulius Babilas, senior PR officer of the Lithuanian Land Force, told BNS Lithuania.

The agreement between the Lithuanian Land Force and the PANG 28ID will be signed by Land Force Commander Brigadier General Raimundas Vaiksnoras and Assistant Division Commander Brigadier General Mark McCormack.
