While developing and strengthening air defence capabilities of the Lithuanian Air Force (LTAF), focus was also paid on organisation of air defence by establishing an Air defence battalion. In July 2000, the LTAF established the Air Defence Battalion. The Air Defence Battalion's primary missions include: defend state facilities of vital importance against military aviation attacks from the air in low and medium altitude, support land forces in fighting against ground armoured technical equipment and in other events and train military personnel in carrying out combat tasks.
