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-148G, Javelin Block 3?, is a further variant under development along a new and lighter command launch unit (CLU). The FGM-148G missile will dramatically improve the performance of previous models with a decreased weight while lowering the production cost. The new missile may enter service in the mid 2020s.
