I must`ve watched the start of the vid 10 times. The way it sort of "leaps" out of the launcher, seems to hover in mid-air for a moment, and then rocket away is surreal.

a quick snip from wikipedia:

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.

...just saying.

The top of a tank is normally the least armored part of the vehicle. Notice how the missile, After acquiring it`s target, parallels the ground first, then rises and dives nearly vertically for impact. All the while, The operator is helping guide it in case the target moves. It`s ready in 30 seconds and can be reloaded in 20 seconds.

A truly awesome weapon, That can target more than just tanks.

Good catch, wiseman74. Obviously the soundtrack was edited so it would synch up with the visual asplosion without the speed-of-sound delay. You will also notice that when the camera is near the tank, you can still hear the guys talking a quarter mile away, so we know it was edited.

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

`I`m really confused as why the "visual explosion" and "explosion sound" are in sync in the first clip.. from that distance there should be a delay...`

"call of duty 4 got this exactly right..."

No, it didn`t. Please do relate where in CoD4 you see a thirty-meter-tall fireball spew from a destroyed tank.

Older than Internet!

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.
