    There are more differences between the NLAW and the Javelin and they are used in different situations. The Javelin is self-guided whereas the NLAW is line-of-sight. The NLAW is best at close in contact and the Javelin is a distance shot from a hide. The Javelin’s warhead is different as well. It has a tandem shaped charge warhead to defeat reactive armor or other added defenses to the armor, such as the grills or bird cages. The NLAW is a HEAT round which can also be used as an overhead burst with a proximity fuse. Mr. Starkey, as Defense Editor, should know this. He, as well, left out a great deal of information on MANPADS engagements in the field. He also left out the FIM-92, an oldie but goodie. It was good to see that someone mentioned the Stugna, an ATGM with yet different operational characteristics than the Javelin or NLAW.

      Sorry you forgot to mention the soft launch on the NLAW no lethal back blast means you can fire it from a buildings window safely..also harder to spot after firing

    I was in the British army back in the day when the best weapons we had to stop a tank were the Milan and the WOMBAT. Amazing how technology has moved on. The vid should have mentioned Ukraine's home developed AT weapon the Stugna., by all accounts a great bit of kit.

    JAVELINS are actually the most advanced, sophisticated, and technologically astute weapons ever produced. Imagine having a million Superguns. A10's are cool too, nothing beats a minigun.

    NLAW has two attack modes: straight on AND also to attack from the top. Just like the Javelin. Also, Javelin is reloadable while you can, but usually don't, reload the NLAW.

      @Corzappy Yes, it does (to certain extent - closer range, I think) so that it can hit moving targets. Otherwise it wouldn't be fire and forget.

      OTA is NOT like the javelin.
      overfly top attack (OTA). In OTA, the NLAW missile follows a flight path one meter above the line of sight before impacting the target from above at a perpendicular angle.
      The Javelin can reach a peak altitude of 150 m (490 ft) in top attack mode

    NLAW, Javelins are ATGMs, anti tank guided missiles. MANPADS are Stingers and Starstreak.

    NLAW, Javelin, etc. are not MANPADS.
    MANPADS are man portable air defense systems like the Stinger.
    These systems differ from the man portable anti tank weapons like the NLAW, Javelin and others.

    A Russian man woke from a 6 month coma yesterday. On hearing about the Ukraine invasion he said to his friend “You mean 50,000 Russians have been killed, 5000 armoured combat vehicles destroyed, 2000 tanks, 1300 artillery, 250 aircraft, 200 helicopters, and 15 ships and boats, including the Black Sea flagship !? And how about NATO losses ?”
    His friend replied “They haven’t turned up yet !”

    The ‘Defence Editor’ doesn’t know the difference between a MANPADS and an ATGM. Nope; MANPADS are Man Portable Air Defence Systems (shoulder launched anti aircraft missiles). NLAW & Javelin are ATGM’s; Anti Tank Guided Missiles.

    The next-generation light anti-tank weapon (NLAW) is the first missile system for non-experts and can strike out tanks with a single shot as it strikes from above.
    The weapon weighs 12.5 kilos and depending on which year model it is, the fired missile reaches 600-800 meters. It can be fired in tight spaces.
    Price per piece $ 35,000.
    Developed by Saab Bofors Dynamics in Sweden and manufactured in the UK.
    The American missile weapon Javelin is twice as heavy as the NLAW at 24.3 kilos, and reaches 2500 old one to 4000 meters new one.
    In 2002, a single Javelin command launch unit cost $ 126,000, and each missile cost around
    $ 78,000 (equivalent to $ 112,000 in 2020). Thats $ 238,000 do you get it now ?!

    So much wrong information in this.
    Javelin and NLAW are not MANPADS (that stands for Man Portable Air Defence System, so that would be Starstreak, Stingers etc.)
    Javelin can be used in the two ways described, where it either flies straight at the target or goes into a high-arch attack.
    NLAW (or Robot 57, since the weapon was developed in Sweden) also has two attack modes. It can fly straight at the target or do a fly-over attack where it doesn't go into a high arch like the Javelin, but flies at foot or two above the target (say the turret of a tank) and when it explodes, the explosion is fired downwards towards the top of the target.
    I can't fault the general public for not knowing this, but this guy is "Defence Editor" and should know these things, things that are common knowledge for anyone with even a passing interest in military hardware. Things that can be readily found on Wikipedia.

    50% of the shots were blanks, due to technical problems and the inability of Ukrainian soldiers to use these weapons, Russian tanks also showed good resistance to being hit by these shots. Often the tank leaves after receiving three direct hits. In general, this is a marketing story with an effect close to zero, this stuff will not be sold anywhere else.
