Operating in pairs, even one Javelin Team can prove a nightmare to opposing armored vehicles if deployed properly.

Lore

"Well, we all know and love the FGM-148 Javelin anti-tank missile system. The weapon itself is quite on the heavy side with a carry weight of fifty pounds, but trust me when I say that nobody wants to be on the receiving end of a tandem HEAT missile screaming down from the sky to blast a crater into the roof of some T-whatever piece of junk. Unlike the more lightweight and versatile SRAWs used by the fireteams at the front, the Javelin is a specialised long range support weapon operated by a crew of two. Now, the thing that's truly amazing is the new ASCAT missile, which stands for Airbursting Shaped Charge Anti-Tank. This missile contains a payload of several sensor-fused submunitions which automatically form explosive penetrators that scatter over a moderately sized area. This allows the Javelin operator to either drop a highly destructive and accurate missile on a single vehicle target for massive damage or rain hell on a whole bunch of poor suckers at the same time. Makes for one hell of a fireworks show!"[1]
