Ukraine will not have enough anti-tank missile systems (ATGM) FGM-148 Javelin (“Javelin”), which are supplied by the United States, for a possible war with Russia. The President of the Potomac Foundation Philip Carber said this in an interview with 19FortyFive.
Karber noted that the United States supplied about 120 Javelin ATGM launchers to the Ukrainian military. According to him, this can only be enough to contain the situation on the line of contact.
“But to cover six times more territory, Ukraine will need a hell of a lot of anti-tank guided missiles than they have now, or the number that we have supplied,” the analyst predicted.
The head of the Potomac Foundation noted that the US military is depositing a significant amount of equipment with the TOW-2 ATGM. He suggested that some of it could be transferred to the Ukrainian military.
Earlier, the 19FortyFive edition named the main weapon of Ukraine in a possible conflict. The publication noted the FGM-148 Javelin anti-tank systems, which work on the “fire and forget” principle.
Last December, Rossiyskaya Gazeta questioned the tests of Ukrainian Javelins, which hit a shielded target.
