Known as a ‘fire-and-forget’ weapon, the Javelin is autonomously guided to the target after launch, leaving the firer free to immediately take cover or reload. The weapon system can be fired by one person, but is usually a two-person team effort with one carrying the launcher and the other carrying the missile.
This weapon can be fired in two modes; top attack or direct trajectory, and can be operated in both the man-portable and vehicle mounted roles. The Javelin is operated by soldiers from our Army’s Fire Support Group within each infantry battalion.
