According to Lithuanian Minister of Defense Arvydas Anusauskas, the mission includes the deployment of the Patriot air defense system.

"The rotational air defence system, agreed at Vilnius [NATO summit] will begin working this year at least partially. The Patriot system will be deployed by a European NATO ally," Anusauskas told reporters.
