Javelin Missiles Arrive in Georgia
Civil Georgia, Tbilisi / 23 Jan.'18 / 17:17

Georgian Defense Minister Levan Izoria said that the first stage of purchasing the Javelin anti-armor missiles has been completed successfully and the missiles have been stored in “a safe place.”  

Speaking after the meeting with U.S. Ambassador to Georgia, Ian Kelly on January 23, Defense Minister Levan Izoria noted that Georgian soldiers will undergo training in the near future to acquire necessary skills for operating the system.  

The U.S. Department of State has made a determination approving a possible Foreign Military Sale to Georgia for Javelin Missiles and Command Launch Units for an estimated cost of $75 million in November 2017.

Javelin, described as the world’s most lethal one-man-portable anti-armor weapon system by its U.S.-based producer - Raytheon/Lockheed Martin Javelin Joint Venture, is widely used by the U.S. Army and the U.S. Marine Corps.

The Georgian Defense Minister said last December that Javelins will be purchased in two stages.
