According to the article, it’s “fire and run like hell”.

A precursor warhead detonates any ablative armor

Detonates armor? I know what they mean, but it seems that they could have said it better.

“Armor penetration
800 mm”

That’s a little over 31”. Wow

How about: It blasts that pesky explosive carp they glue on the outside of the People holder part so the other part of the warhead goes BOOM !!! in their laps.

?

Back before Javelins I was a Dragon gunner. The only tank I got to destroy was a Bundeswehr M113 with an Iron Cross on the side of it. It felt really good to watch it disappear in that ball of fire.

Seems like the Javelin would be great recreational fun for lots of things!!!!!

The text is “detonates any explosive reactive armor”...which I thought is what the precursor warhead is for...

The lethal Javelin is what Trump gave the Ukraine, because he’s a Russian-puppet anti-Ukranian.

By contrast, Obama gave the Ukraine blankets, because he was such a staunch supporter of our Ukrainian allies. Oh, and night-vision goggles too, so that our Ukrainian allies could see the Russian tanks coming and know it was time to hide under those blankets.

You’re right. The article says “reactive armor.” I was commenting on the post at the top of this thread which says “ablative armor.”

We gave javelins to the ukrainians to fight the russkies in Crimea.

They have not fired any of the javelins.

Foreign aid will make you a cynic in a flash.
