Some people here think Javelin would have top attack if in the game. Wrong. It would have regular attack with bonus AP. See RBS56 for details.

2400m
acc50
AP27

Done?

5-10 seconds long aim time to simulate the time needed to cool the thermal camera?

Where on Earth did this belief come from that it's this short range? It has the same given effective range as a MILAN, and has been known to work even above that.

Missile is capable of flying beyond 4 km, but it's limited by the command unit.

Javelin would be too OP.

http://www.lockheedmartin.com/us/news/press-releases/2013/february/mfc-020613-javelin-demonstrates.html


During the U.S. Army tests, the Javelin system acquired and engaged targets up to 4,750 meters.

“These tests prove that, under favorable conditions, Javelin can have reliable, solid performance as a close-combat weapon system well beyond the current maximum range requirement of 2,500 meters,” said Duane Gooden, Javelin Joint Venture president and Raytheon Javelin program director. “There were two direct hits on the threat representative target at the extended range.”


Top attack, tandem warhead to defeat reactive armor, and 95% hit rate at 2.5km, yea. OP.

You're on a watch list now. I guarantee it.

No modifications or anything?
