High end Infantry ATGMs?

Postby themediocrity » Fri 15 Nov 2013 06:31

could we/should we see weapons like the Kornet and FGM-148 Javelin (I'm sure there are many more to consider) as prototype infantry weapons? Kornet is certainly in the prototype time frame but Javelin is questionably so (it existed before 1995 but was not in service). Eugen has presumably decided this by now but what do you think?

I'd support that. It's a monster of an AT weapon, including a confirmed case of penetrating the armor of challenge 2 in Iraq.

If it was ingame i'd assume it would have something like 26+ AP given it could reliably take out 21st century tanks.

Before anyone says the challenger 2 drove home, remember that penetrating a modern MBT is a huge feat in it of itself, and a side shot on the turret would've probably put it out of action, like it did with that an M1A2 (i assume it was an M2 given this accident happened in 2007)

Edited for actual error: sensationalist sources were not detected in time.

To bad, I would have liked to have a useful atgm for the US. If the argument against is it would be over powered, then I feel like allot of US and Russian equipment will be dropped from prototypes list.

TOW 2 Bradley, who needs more? (Even if we know that the true AT weapon is the Bushmaster god).
