Description: The Javelin subsonic, anti-tank, anti-bunker missile automatically guides itself to the target after launch using its IR seeker. It uses an arched top-attack profile to strike where the armor is weakest. It can be safely fired from inside buildings or bunkers making it suitable for urban area warfare. The Javelin missile is capable of defeating all-known main battle tanks thanks to its tandem shaped charge warhead and its top-attack profile. The missile travels at more than 100-foot (30 meters) altitude before coming down to strike its intended target.
The FGM-148F, Javelin Block 2?, is a new variant introduced in early 2019 featuring an advanced multipurpose warhead. The new warhead incorporates the latest shaped charge technology to defeat known and projected heavy armored tanks. Besides a fragmentation steel warhead case improves lethality against soft targets and light armored vehicles. The FGM-148F missile will enter service in early 2020 following a first production contract for 2,100 missile rounds.
