more of a GP demo tool in my opinion

hardly a true AT. That's why we never adopted it before.

much more useful to blow up hardpoints

we still need the javelin

Do we not say soldier any more? It's all "warfighters?"

Don't you know? The best weapon against tanks is a strapped for cash defence department!!!

Or is to stop infantry using expensive guided weapons to blow up hard points and similar targets?

Good point. Our language keeps getting twisted and distorted by either bureaucrats or political correctness.

Well that doesn't make it that much older than a lot of the contents of the worlds tank stockpiles!

We were just getting training on the AT-4 when I was getting off active duty in early '90.

We had the M-47 Dragon MAW, but we were really not too happy with that for a Squad man-packed AT weapon. Along with the M-72 LAW. Of course we had TOWs mounted on M151 Jeeps the on HMMWVs. As well on APCs, i.e. M901 ITVs.

But I certainly think the Javelin would have been a great improvement over the M-47 MAW, AFAIK. But I also heard the M72 was still around. And I was under the impression the Javelin would still be used along with this new version of the Carl Gustaf, M3E1 AT weapon.

What did your Infantry Squads, etc., carry ? Just interested in this information after I had ETS'd …
