      I propose that the same pig be planted in the USA by rearmament of the countries near the USA ... Venezuela, Cuba, Nicaragua ... modern MANPADS and anti-tank systems will be gladly accepted there.
      The United States does not understand the civil language in communicating with Russia ... everywhere they are trying to make us nasty.

        hi
        This is Trump’s kind of pay for the “forwind” of the Zeloids in relation to his opponent - Biden, and at the same time to rude Russia.

    Strange is this:
    the total amount of the contract is 18,4 млн. dollars

    Not only for Ukraine and Georgia, but also for 14 more countries,

    Prior to this, Ukraine has already received from the United States 37 launchers and 210 anti-tank guided missiles ATGM Javelin total amount 47 млн. dollars.

    You can estimate ....

      According to these estimates, it turns out that each of the 16 countries has a 1st pipe and 5 missiles.
      Well, unless of course they did some 95% mega-discount. But the Christmas sale seems a long way off.

    Already 37 pieces? There is nothing to fear with such an arsenal - the victory is obvious.
    Campaign Americans troll Ukrainians. You can adjust a couple of tanks and the old helicopter to gain. Then the Poles will understand that now they are not the "strongest army in Europe."
    Seriously, it’s better not to talk about such deliveries at all.

      These supplies are a political gesture. In reality, every year 200-300 ATGMs “Stugna-P” and “Corsair” buy in the APU. And it is much more serious. Not according to the declared performance characteristics (performance characteristics at the level of Russian analogues), but according to the number and degree of development by the troops.

    The cost of one javelin rocket is about 80 thousand US dollars.
    And do you believe that you will supply javelin to the Sumerians for free?

    We need such a weapon that would guarantee the destruction of the one who shoots from the jelly, so that the fighter knows that this will be the last thing he will do in this life.

      It's impossible. It takes a lot of variables to come together in a short time - detecting the shooter with Javelin and destroying him before launch or after the first launch. Javelin with GOS operates on the principle of target recognition by patterns, this happens in seconds. After that, the launch and the shooter operator immediately leaves the position or hides in cover. He does not need to keep the target in sight until it hits.

      And so it is. The shot is quite noticeable. Shooting from a short distance, due to the rather primitive thermal imager in the rocket. Even if you aimly pull the 125 mm RP there, then it will be very bad.

        It’s clear that a smart, expensive complex ... but not the best, the best in terms of parameters.

    The feeling when VO news authors are trying to get news from a distant foreign country, but something went wrong and the contract for maintenance and support of imports of already delivered ATGMs turn into a whole dumping campaign on the arms market in general, and Javelin ATGM in particular.
    If this is "Military Review", then you need to at least know where to copy-paste.
    Link to the original:
    https://www.defense.gov/Newsroom/Contracts/Contract/Article/2098309/
    Original:
    Raytheon / Lockheed Martin Javelin JV, Tucson, Arizona, was awarded an $ 18,431,215 modification (P00022) to contract W31P4Q-19-C-0059. Work will be performed in Tucson, Arizona, with an estimated completion date of June 25, 2020. Fiscal 2020 operations and maintenance, Army, and foreign military sales (Australia, Czech Republic, Estonia, France, Georgia, Indonesia, Ireland, Jordan, Lithuania, New Zealand, Norway, Oman, Qatar, Turkey, Ukraine and the United Arab Emirates) funds in the amount of $ 18,431,215 were obligated at the time of the award. US Army Contracting Command, Redstone Arsenal, Alabama, is the contracting activity.

    Does Russia have a complex comparable to Jewel on TTX? I don’t remember. What are you going to arm?

      he clearly wrote "put the US pig" and not himself, "modern MANPADS and anti-tank systems" and not "comparable to a javelin"

    The United States has two tasks in this contract - the first is profit, the second is the increase in losses of US opponents in regional conflicts like Donbass.

    Saturation of ATGM is very serious.
    Although stocks are replenished.
    Darts as a spare, and at the forefront everything is Ukrainian, from KB Luch.
    Both sides, in view of satiation, have long gone over to the ATGM war. (Artillery is "forbidden" by MC2, although it is well-being.)
