australian army FGM-148 Javelin training

The Javelin Weapon System has been introduced to the Australian Army to
engage and destroy current and anticipated enemy armour at ranges beyond
that achievable with previous shoulder-fired anti-armour systems.

The
system also offers the capability to destroy slow-moving or hovering
rotary wing aircraft or fortifications. Combat arms units employ Javelin
as a dismounted shoulder-fired weapon. Javelin may be fitted to vehicle
platforms. Targets are engaged by locking on to their heat signature
and once fired; there is no further requirement to guide the missile.
The Javelin's time of flight is approximately 14 seconds for 2
kilometres.
