US Congress approves Georgia's sale of Javelin ATGM

39
The United States Congress approved the sale of Javelin portable anti-tank missile systems (ATGW) to Georgia, Defense Minister Levan Izoria said at a joint meeting of several committees in the Georgian parliament on Wednesday.


As the minister said, a political decision has been made on the sale of Georgia to Javelin ATGM in the USA.

US Congress approves Georgia's sale of Javelin ATGM


I want to announce for the first time today that yesterday the congress adopted a positive decision on the transfer of the Javelin anti-tank systems to Georgia. This recognition of the reforms that were carried out in the Ministry of Defense. This was one of the conditions for the transmission of this system.
said Isoria.

Last week, it was reported that Republican Senator Paul Rand opposed the transfer of Javelin anti-tank systems to Georgia. Commenting on the position of the senator, the head of the Georgian Ministry of Defense then stated that this is the opinion of one senator and it will not be able to influence the final decision of the absolute majority of congressmen.

As previously reported by the Georgian Defense Ministry, it is about deliveries totaling about $ 75 million. Georgian authorities have previously announced their desire to purchase 410 missiles for this complex, 72 aim-launchers, ten training complexes and 70 charges for them.

In Tbilisi, they say that the acquisition of Javelin ATGM is not directed against any countries and this weapon is exclusively defensive in nature.

Its sole purpose is to effectively protect the sovereignty of our country. All types of weapons that we acquire or will acquire in the future will only be defensive in nature.
- The Georgian Defense Minister told reporters earlier, commenting on the statement by the Russian Foreign Ministry that deliveries of Javelin anti-tank systems from the United States to Georgia might push Tbilisi towards new dangerous adventures in the region, Interfax-AVN reports.

          You are kidding, ours have already dismantled the javelin in the cogs and assembled .. a very long time, but what's the point? We also hijacked aircraft and tanks, we generally sell to the Chinese .. only making an exact copy is not possible without documentation!

        This is not a grenade launcher, but an anti-tank missile system, and it’s just for defense against tanks, what do you dislike? Tanks attacking anti-tank systems are defensively logically, or do you think the opposite will be laughing ? After all, it’s not called a ROUTE-missile complex for destroying tanks, it is called ANTITANK then and air defense in your opinion is offensive wink ?

        But South Ossetia and Abkhazia in response to this need (IMHO) to hold referendums on joining Russia. This would be a good lesson for the Ruins.

        So much PR to this system is done .... cool? So sell to everyone who asks, what's the matter?
        Is it a cruise or ballistic missile?

        Commenting on the statement by the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs that deliveries of the Javelin ATGM from the USA to Georgia, perhaps Tbilisi will push to new dangerous

        It’s interesting, but does this MFA know that our ministers and deputy ministers on NG travel to Georgia to celebrate with their families?
        Javelins of type are more dangerous))) red and advertising on mattress weapons. Javelin can be cool, but not a panacea.

      "Javelin" is a powerful weapon at a distance of up to 2 km, I will not post performance characteristics, the topic was discussed at VO, and the potential enemy should not underestimate the appearance of such weapons.

        and underestimate the appearance of such weapons from a potential enemy is not worth it.
        A blessing in disguise ... When we got a heat shield, known as the "Cape", the same Americans showed much more interest in it than in our army. Perhaps the prospect of the appearance of "Javelin" in Bandera, will make it more serious to think about countering this complex, which, undoubtedly, has advantages, but also shortcomings. In principle, even shooting heat traps, as in aviation, can significantly limit the effectiveness of the Javelin, the whole question of how to do this for a tank. A little bit about the "Cape".
        "Cape" - a truly unique means of protection. And it consists of a special synthetic insulating material, the temperature of the outer surface of which corresponds to the ambient temperature. Using the "Capes" allows you to reduce the 2-3 times in the probability of a tank being detected by infrared homing heads; in all radar ranges, the visibility of the combat vehicle is reduced to 10 times. In the radio-thermal range, the tank with the "Cape" on the operator's screen or in the homing head almost merges with the background.
        It is known that the American Flying Radar E-8C "Jay Stars" is capable, by secondary Doppler characteristics, to distinguish wheeled vehicles from tracked vehicles from a distance of 180 km. Using aprons at the front and rear of the tank, as well as extended side screens from the Capes kit, reduces the distance to 30-40 km. But then the reconnaissance aircraft gets into the zone of the military air defense, and its use loses its meaning. For the missile sighting system, the tank, closed by the "Cape", also does not disappear completely, but the possibility of homing occurs too late. The pilot of an airplane or a helicopter must launch a rocket at the last moment, almost under him, which is almost impossible.
        Hot exhaust gas clubs, according to Anatoly Antipov, the developer of the “Cape”, do not facilitate the possibility of hitting a war machine with heat-guided weapons. Heated solids — that is, iron itself — produce a continuous emission spectrum. Exhaust is a gas containing substances found in nature. That is why the radiation of heated, for example, hydrogen is absorbed by the same hydrogen contained in the atmosphere.
