    Surely this would be an answer to a cost cuting exercise. Light - total weight of about 5Kg (each projectile only weighs 2.5kg), cheap - launcher and projectile combined costs $10k and is fire and forget, it also has a range of 3.2Km.

    Obviously we'd still retain the Javelin as the 'silver bullet' for tanks and heavily armoured vehicles but surely this would be ideal for lightly armoured vehicles and buildings
