Awesome tank hits with powerful and modern anti-tank weapon systems. Footage shows the fearsome FGM-148 Javelin, AT4, BGM-71 TOW & SPG-9 anti tank rockets and missiles in action vs tanks, cars and other vehicles on several training ranges.
Video starts with US Soldiers shooting the powerful anti-tank weapons missile BGM-71 TOW ATGM against a target tank during a training exercise.
The following part shows US soldiers and US Marines destroying tanks and vehicles with the the powerful FGM-148 Javelin and also a nice hit on a tank with the AT4 anti-tank rocket launcher before the video switches to mixed shots of soldiers and marines firing FGM-148 Javelins, AT-4s and BGM-71 TOW ATGMs on fixed tank targets to destroy them in order of their live fire weapons training exercise.
The end of the video marks soldiers blowing up several tanks and armored vehicles with old but still effective and fashioned SPG-9 recoilless rifes.
The FGM-148 Javelin is an American man-portable fire-and-forget anti-tank missile fielded to replace the M47 Dragon anti-tank missile in US service. It uses an automatic infrared guidance that allows the user to seek cover immediately after launch, as opposed to wired guided systems, like the Dragon, where the user has to actively guide the weapon throughout the engagement. The Javelin's HEAT warhead is capable of defeating modern tanks by attacking them from above, and is also very useful against fortifications in a direct attack flight.
The AT-4 (also AT4) is an 84-mm unguided, portable, single-shot recoilless smoothbore weapon built in Sweden by Saab Bofors Dynamics (previously Bofors Anti-Armour Systems). Saab has had considerable sales success with the AT4, making it one of the most common light anti-tank weapons in the world.
The designation "CS" represents "confined space", referring to the propellant charge being designed to operate effectively within buildings in an urban environment. It is intended to give infantry units a means to destroy or disable armoured vehicles and fortifications, although it is not generally sufficient to defeat a modern main battle tank (MBT). The launcher and projectile are manufactured prepacked and issued as a single unit of ammunition, with the launcher discarded after a single use.
The BGM-71 TOW ("Tube-launched, Optically tracked, Wire-guided")[is an American anti-tank missile.
First produced in 1970, the TOW is one of the most widely used anti-tank guided missiles.
The SPG-9 Kopye (Spear) is a Russian tripod-mounted man-portable, 73 millimetre calibre recoilless gun developed by the Soviet Union. It fires fin-stabilised, rocket-assisted HE and HEAT projectiles similar to those fired by the 73 mm 2A28 Grom low pressure gun of the BMP-1 armored vehicle. It was accepted into service in 1962, replacing the B-10 recoilless rifle.
