About this Item

64 pages. Dimensions: 9.7in. x 7.4in. x 0.1in.The US Army has completed fielding of the Javelin Antitank Weapon System to Infantry Battalions in the 75th Ranger Regiment and the 82nd Airborne Division. In the year 2000, the fielding team is issuing the Javelin to the Second Infantry Division in Korea. Thus far, results from the soldiers and leaders indicate that the fire and forget Javelin is largely accepted as a dramatic improvement over its wire-guided predecessor the Dragon. During numerous fielding tests, live fire tests, and force on force tests at the National Training Center, technological and tactical experts have closely monitored the performance of the Javelin. The capabilities and potential impact of this new weapon system obligates the U. S. Army to examine how it intends to integrate the Javelin system into all warfighting domains. This monograph answers the question whether the introduction of the Javelin into the U. S. Armys Light Infantry Battalions marks the beginning of a revolution in ground antiarmor warfare. This monograph begins with a comparison of the Javelin to the Dragon to demonstrate the significant increase in capabilities. The monograph establishes clear criteria for distinguishing a military revolution from an evolution and establishes the Javelins link to the U. S. militarys present Revolution in Military Affairs (RMA). The Infantry Revolution of the 1300s is examined as an example of a military revolution and antitank guided missile (ATGM) use during the Arab-Israeli War of 1973 is examined as an example of a military evolution. The monograph studies U. S. Army and U. S. Marine Corps relevant doctrinal manuals and text to determine if the introduction of the Javelin has caused any changes in the antiarmor tactics. The review will assess the progress and quality of incorporating Javelin tactics into doctrinal publications and demonstrate that much progress is still needed in developing new tactics for employing Javelin equipped units in both offensive and defensive scenarios.

Synopsis:

The US Army has completed fielding of the Javelin Antitank Weapon System to Infantry Battalions in the 75th Ranger Regiment and the 82nd Airborne Division. In the year 2000, the fielding team is issuing the Javelin to the Second Infantry Division in Korea.

During numerous fielding tests, live fire tests, and force on force tests at the National Training Center, technological and tactical experts have closely monitored the performance of the Javelin. The capabilities and potential impact of this new weapon system obligates the U.S. Army to examine how it intends to integrate the Javelin system into all warfighting domains. This monograph answers the question whether the introduction of the Javelin into the U.S. Army's Light Infantry Battalions marks the beginning of a revolution in ground antiarmor warfare. This monograph begins with a comparison of the Javelin to the Dragon to demonstrate the significant increase in capabilities. The monograph establishes clear criteria for distinguishing a military revolution from an evolution and establishes the Javelin's link to the U.S. military's present Revolution in Military Affairs (RMA).
