Ukraine: USA delivered us a batch of new Javelin rockets

57

For the needs of the Ukrainian military, the United States sent Kiev a batch of anti-tank missiles Javelin. Delivery took place under a contract concluded in December last year.


This was reported by the press service of the Ukrainian defense department.

FGM-148E missiles were sent to Ukraine, which are considered the penultimate modification of this weapons. At the same time, they declared in Ukraine that the United States had supplied them with "new missiles." The latter is considered FGM-148F, first entered the United States Armed Forces only in May this year. For obvious reasons, Washington did not send the latest ATGM modifications to the APU.

"New" missiles arrived in Ukraine on June 16. This was the first batch of military cargo in the framework of the pilot project of the US government "International military sales." In total, Javelin missiles and additional equipment worth $ 27 million were delivered.

The contract provides not only for the sending of the weapons complex, but also for its maintenance and the provision of related services for the training of personnel for the effective operation of new weapons throughout their entire life spans.

Missiles Javelin FGM-148E, like previous modifications, are designed to destroy armored vehicles, fortifications on the ground, as well as some aircraft moving at low altitude and speed - helicopters and UAVs.

          Yeah. The newest from the factory were sent to Banderland, and their old ones were left in the warehouses for a long time, to wait until the rocket fuel “goes bad”))))

            According to FMS, these Javelin ATGMs were manufactured at the factory specifically for Ukraine, Georgia, Lithuania and others. Last year there was news that an order was placed on the Pentagon's procurement site for these purposes to produce a certain amount of anti-tank systems.
            If you think that writing off old and accepting new missiles is quick, especially following all procedures, as well as taking into account the fact that all the "older" ATGMs are scattered at different points, then you are greatly mistaken. In addition, there is a fairly small difference in age.
            And it is worth remembering that the FGM-148E is the version of 2008, which at the moment, during the production process, was transferred to new components, therefore there is nothing critical for the United States and its warehouses in the supply of these missiles.

              You want to say that for Ukraine, Lithuania, etc. make rockets better than for the US? I know firsthand what military acceptance is at the factory. Of these, two or three people who really know something and know how, the rest do not know what the caliper is or how to use a micrometer.

                Most likely they are made simply by others. For deliveries to countries with unreliable regimes, where there is a risk of weapons falling into the wrong hands, options with modified technologies will be delivered there, so that reverse engineering could not fully analyze vulnerabilities.

                  So I think that even if they are new, from the factory, they are still not better than those that the mattresses have in service. Q.E.D)))

                For the United States, similar missiles (FGM-149E) have been made since 2008, except that during the production process the components and components were slightly improved and optimized. And since May of this year, the FGM-149F is already being produced for the US Armed Forces.
                What is incomprehensible in the fact that the Pentagon orders Raytheon to manufacture rockets for export? Even if we assume that the Pentagon would order all the new (only manufactured) ATGMs "Javelin" and export the missiles taken from its warehouses, it would still be necessary to send them to the manufacturer and carry out an inspection with restoration of either medium / major repairs (depending on the state of the rocket). But in fact, the Pentagon and so very often gives away with discounts and for "just like that" according to FMS at the expense of the State Department of ATGMs with an age of 5-7 + years, so they already have few old ATGMs
                In addition, most of the radars, helicopters, missiles for various systems, as well as such popular types of weapons as the M107, ATGM TOW and Hellfire, machine guns, grenade launchers and assault rifles, the Pentagon delivers through the FMS line new and here there is no direct dependence Ukraine is either Norway, Georgia or Germany, for the money of the Americans or at the expense of the country consuming these weapons.
                The fact remains that the Pentagon ordered for Ukraine, as well as for the rest of the countries on that list, the production of precisely new missiles (FGM-149E), and not the restoration of old ones, because the second option does not make much sense, given that in the USA the majority ATGM "Javelin" in the FGM-149E version is simply of an earlier assembly, so it makes no sense to build all these multi-missiles with cancellation, but it will be easier to let the "aging" missiles through the upgrade to the FGM-149F level.
                Moreover, Javelin ATGMs are stored in airtight TPKs for 10-15 years depending on modifications and service conditions, the main objectives of inspections are usually GOS and solid fuel, which can be replaced at the factory equally quickly. The case and basic electronics, except perhaps for the ROM and the processor (to meet the demands of the new GOS), can not be changed, since no destructive effects on them occurred.

          Yes, actually it doesn’t matter really or virtually that they “decorated”, correctly you said about their dreams and ideals.

            Penetration and off-line action of UY is small .. therefore, on a heavy TOU-2 there are 2 of them - and they should hit in the same place ... for a guarantee. VLD and the roof of our tanks in NDZ - you will not break.
            Shot and forgotten it is good ... only preparations for the shot take a minute of not the easiest manipulations (for which the shooter can be killed 10 times) + short range + low armor impact and even in case of penetration, it is unrealistic to disable the tank with one hit, it will lead the trunk and send the hero to the gourii (especially since the range is not high) + restrictions in the SMU, in conditions of smoke, etc. - may not capture the target at all or not capture it. And you still can’t shoot "2 meters to the left of the bush of that bush", you need something contrasting. Cons - dofiga, especially considering the price.

            But the Cornet is full of holes with a margin to any place from any distance at which you can actually find a tank .... the main thing is to get there.
            If you compare with ours - then with Metis.
