Andriy Vajra: American Javelins were ineffective in Ukraine

On the website of the main opposition project of Ukraine "Voice of Truth» A new entry by a Ukrainian journalist has been published Andrey Vajra:

American Javelins were ineffective in Ukraine. In our disposition turned out to be internal documents of Raytheon, which manufactures these ATGMs.

In Ukraine, there is almost a cult of "holy Javelins", who supposedly can destroy any military equipment. But in fact, the complexes are not so good.

The documents indicate that the effectiveness of Javelin "is different from the declared." So, out of 11 test launches, only three hit stationary target (see first graph).

According to open data, the ATGM firing range can be up to 5 km. But internal documents say that it's twice as low (see second graph).

The Raytheon questionnaire, which was filled out by the US military who went through Iraq and Afghanistan, indicated that a third of the attempts to fire from the Javelin were "accompanied by problems."

These are trained fighters who have studied the Javelin and trained on the training grounds. Even they had difficulties. In addition, American soldiers do not fully understand from what distance the Javelin is guaranteed to hit the target.
