The FGM-148 Javelin is an American man-portable fire-and-forget anti-tank missile fielded to replace the M47 Dragon anti-tank missile in U.S. service. The Javelin is a fire-and-forget missile with lock-on before launch and automatic self-guidance, as it uses an automatic infrared guidance that allows the user to seek cover immediately after launch, as opposed to wired guided systems, like the Dragon, where the user has to actively guide the weapon throughout the engagement.
Here we see a slow motion rendering of Soldiers with 2nd Cavalry Regiment firing an FGM-148 Javelin anti-tank missiles during a combined arms live fire training exercise at the Estonian Defense Forces central training area in Estonia.
