    The UK has placed an initial order for 144 Javelin missiles and 18 Command Launch Units (CLUs), sufficient for one battalion, for first deliveries in 2005 to replace MILAN. Additional UK orders are expected to be placed; the eventual requirement is understood to be for as many as 3,871 missiles and 378 CLUs.
    Eight overseas countries have ordered or selected Javelin, including Australia, Canada, Ireland, Jordan, Lithuania, Taiwan, New Zealand and the UK.

      Catch-22 says they have a right to do anything we can't stop them from doing.

        There is a requirement for 54 launchers, as each Inf Bn has a requirement of 6.

            The original FMS request was for 60 launchers and 100 rounds:

            estimated cost was only $26 million including training yet seems we paid $12 million for a lot less, ideas anyone?

              "We didn't take the Javelin missile in when we went because of the lack of an armored threat however, we used the CLU's a lot, every night for that matter. Beautiful piece of equipment. They consume a lot of batteries and add a lot of weight. After it snowed, two in the company stopped working until they dried out a few days later. Other than that they held up real well."
