The United States began production of a new version of the Javelin F-Model ATGM (FGM-148F)

The United States launched the production of a new model of anti-tank missile systems (ATGM) Javelin, called the Javelin F-Model (FGM-148F). This was reported by the press service of Lockheed Martin.


A press release posted on the company's website said that the release of the new version of the anti-tank complex was launched by the joint venture Javelin, established by Lockheed Martin and Raytheon Rockets & Defense, (a subsidiary of Raytheon Technologies). According to available information, the Pentagon placed an order for the production of 45 thousand new Javelin missiles.

The resumption of testing a new version of anti-tank missile complex (ATGM) missiles FGM-148F was reported in the spring of 2017, after a suspension that lasted almost a year due to problems with a new missile warhead. At the end of January 2019, the Pentagon placed the first order for a new version of Javelin anti-tank systems, paying for the production of 2100 complexes with delivery dates in 2020.

As previously reported, the Javelin FGM-148F is a new modification of the Javelin FGM-148 and differs from it in a new universal warhead. The company claims that the new warhead carries two types of charges: one to destroy dynamic defense tankand the second - to break through the main armor. Also, thanks to the presence of a fragmentation warhead, new missiles are capable of effectively hitting enemy manpower, lightly armored targets and destroying shelters. In addition, the new Javelin has less weight than previous modifications.

The development of Javelin anti-tank systems is carried out in several stages. The new FGM-148F modification is the second stage, at the third and fourth stage of development the company will work to reduce the weight and cost of the complex.

      Syrians wiped themselves

      Who said?

      the sky over the Et-Taj air base used by NATO is protected by the Pantsir-S anti-aircraft missile system. Although earlier the US military claimed that their anti-aircraft guns are much more effective than those that are in service with the Russian army, however, without providing clear evidence, as is often the case.

      The US military does not have such a weapon captured from a satellite. It turned out that the military took the "Shell" from the Iraqi army - they sent a missile system to protect the American group of forces at the request of the US forces command.

        This is called a gross underestimation of the enemy’s weapons.
        Your weapon can be as wonderful as you wish, but if the same Javelin or Spike REALLY can calmly (and they can) destroy the T-72B3 and T-90 of all modifications
        it’s not a weapon, but a magician’s hat
        just stupid.
        Our tanks today do not have (from the word - in general) protection of the upper hemisphere from the shock core of these complexes.

        And optical sights can be broken ... probably they should be abandoned. If you put the AK barrel in the mud and accidentally shoot, the barrel will break, well, nafig, run to repair ... but the spear, the spear, yes, reliable. Even Suvorov said "Bullet fool, bayonet well done."

        The diameter of SPIKE-ER is 170 mm, the diameter of MMP is 140 mm
        Both have an optical control cable and a tele-camera.
        But the larger the diameter of the cone, the more powerful the rocket.
        SPIKE has been used many times. For purposes more than 15 km from the operator.

      Application algorithm. The maximum range of application is 2 km, with this first you need to cool the GOS, then in the line of sight of the target to capture it. The purpose of the tank .. you, in direct visibility, disposed of this device and grab it well .. A modern tank is equipped with a thermal imager, a land mine is flying at a distance of 2 km no more than 5 seconds ...
      Essentially, Jav is the product of the Western representation of the Soviet Army's offensive towards the English Channel. When crowds of tanks rush into a Java offensive, serious damage can be inflicted. In modern warfare .. distances have grown, tanks do not attack in droves in droves .., troops are overgrown with advanced detection tools. VET should be able to work from the edge or further direct shot of the tank .., this is more than 2.5 km.
      Here Spike is tuned to the realities of today's fight against tanks. Although .. its control on the TV channel .. + subsonic flight speed ... not the best option.

      Of course not bad, but very expensive - more than $ 200 thousand. Moreover, about half with a rocket flies away. I would like to have one, but whether the country will be pulled, or maybe the “Dagger” is more important ... Budget is always a compromise.
      But mattresses hang up their debt to the whole world, and therefore they will still draw dollars for themselves, hence the Javelins in Afghanistan beat up single Barmalei.

      Talk nonsense, there is nothing good in it. The shit is complete. By the way, in the USSR in the mid-80s, at a meeting, the prospects of developing the idea of ​​such a PTC were considered, as a result, for several reasons it was considered unpromising. (The possibility of developing low-cost counteraction to this technology was emphasized, which is now confirmed in principle.) Briefly, why shit :( I don’t remember many details I will give the main one)
      1) The prohibitive high cost. 5 pieces cost the same as one T-90. I must say right away that the value claimed by the United States is not even close to reality, in official statements there is a continuous multilevel lie on this topic. Look for peer reviews, contract scandals, etc.
      2) Small range of destruction of equipment
      3) A small caliber (somewhere 130 seems) gives a stream which guarantees penetration of armor no more than 600 mm. (declared 800 is erotic fantasies) For modern tanks, this is nothing!
      Further, due to the small caliber, there is a chain reaction in terms of using very expensive materials (for making a funnel, etc.) in order to squeeze at least something out of the jet.
      4) The rocket ONLY hits a well-warmed and stationary target. The rocket cannot get into the moving target and automatically switches to the frontal damage mode of the target, as a result of which the modern frontal armor does not penetrate even in the absence of dynamic protection.
      There is a video where in Iraq, Americans get into a truck from 200 m from 3 times and the same success in getting into a rather big building from 200 m seems from the second or third attempt.
      5) Extremely complex solutions for cooling the head (in flight, during transportation), the work of the matrix, etc., etc. further text can be written until tomorrow ...
      6) A tedious and long procedure for preparing the device for a shot, which increases the vulnerability of the operator. The fighter should be with brains and well trained in this long dance with a tambourine. Oh, there are few such fighters in all the armies of the world, and especially the American one, I declare this responsibly!
      Few? But that is far from all.
      In short, this is an extremely hothouse, insanely expensive complex created again for the hothouse conditions of exclusively positional combat or sabotage operations, excluding mass serial production and more like a cut ...

    Has anyone heard of the BATTLE application of these "wunderwaffles"? In real clashes?

      Yes. There was a video of how they banged from Javelin ISIS jihadmobile,
      who raced to their checkpoint in front of a military base.
      First, the French fired from Milan - missed.
      Then the Americans from Javelin - smashed this mined BMP

        Well, not really a fight ... The hands were shaking at the French ... And the situation is "polygon" - neither you artillery strike, nor enemy fire "to suppress" ...

          Nothing to do with the landfill.
          The situation was super-nervous. They rushed an armored car stuffed with explosives.
          Overtake them - and they would not be alive.

            I’m talking about this ... The difference between “Javelin” is that he was not nervous laughing and the operator of Milan is very strong. They shot from two kilometers. A suicide bomber would travel for at least a minute even at a speed of 100 ... For good, it was necessary to "bring down" the automatic gun.

              So they are stupid did not guess to use guns, and do all sorts of useless epidemic. Seriously, such a weapon is more effective than an automatic gun, and it implements the “shot and forgot” concept, that is, after a shot it is not necessary to be in the affected area.

                With the help of ATGMs, thousands of tanks and other targets were hit in real battles. How effective are the "homing" Javelins - we know mainly from commercials. Well, at least a few dozen applications, huh?

                  In the second Iraqi 2003, American special forces knocked out
                  of the Javelins, two T-55 tanks and eight armored personnel carriers / infantry fighting vehicles.
                  More famous, of course, is not Javelin, but TOW. From TOW it was hit
                  many tanks in Syria and Iraq.

    The development of Javelin anti-tank systems is carried out in several stages. The new FGM-148F modification is the second stage, at the third and fourth stage of development the company will work to reduce the weight and cost of the complex.

    IMHO, the most interesting lines. In our military-industrial complex, they usually try to hush it up and then the developers gradually make these improvements at their own expense, as if eliminating the shortcomings.

    "The Syrians wiped themselves out:" Not effective in defense ": Syria is changing the" Shell-S "to the old air defense systems"
    This is a golem stuffing. This was not close. On the contrary, when only 4 Pantsyryas were pulled to the front line, an unprecedented dronopad began. And 70-80% was shot down precisely by the Armor.
