As a fire-and-forget missile, after launch the missile has to be able to track and destroy its target without the gunner. This is done by coupling an onboard imaging IR system (different from CLU imaging system) with an onboard tracking system.
The gunner uses the CLU`s IR system to find and identify the target then switches to the missile`s independent IR system to set a track box around the target and establish a lock. The gunner places brackets around the image for locking.
The seeker stays focused on the target`s image continuing to recognize as the target moves or the missile`s flight path alters or as attack angles change.
I want one of those for when my ex comes around bitching about her child support :D
otherwise pretty bad ass
A truly awesome weapon, That can target more than just tanks.
This is really a cool weapon, though. Tanks have heavy armor on their sides, but not much on top. This rocket climbs to several hundred feet and then shoots nearly straight down on the target.
Trust me, you would not want to be in that tank. :-O

Yeah what`s with that
That was pretty dope though.... see that shock wave develop!
No, it didn`t. Please do relate where in CoD4 you see a thirty-meter-tall fireball spew from a destroyed tank.
well at least there is (in comparison) very little kickback
*in call of duty 4*
BTW Tank hatches were welded to test over pressure during the impact. To be able to see any differance tank was primed with additional explosives to simulate full ammo load and then some. There is not enough explosives in a Javelin missile to cause this reaction from a tank even filled with full ammo load. Welding, extra explosives = only video of its kind. Javelin is perfect way it is even without hollywood style fake videos.
