Javelin Cost In real life?

Post by JattPavit on Wed Jan 06, 2010 8:31 pm

Random Question. Do they cost 80,000 or 800,000 per missle? I remember it said in the cod4 campaign after you die. Either way thats a crap load of $$$. So every time u fire a javelin, think of the money wasted if you don't hit anything Mad

Let Me Google That For You

Roughly $125,000-$150,000 per launcher and $80,000-$90,000 per missile. Based on the simple task of Google searching.

It costs way more than that. They are not that cheap. It costs the Unit $125,000 to buy a launcher, but it costs Military $1.1 Million in Technology to make the heavy bastards.

There wasn't a single missile I loaded on the F-15C that cost that much. I seriously doubt that a shoulder fired missile has more "technology" than a rail fired AMRAAM.

Want one?

Javelins are expensive and they are not as cheap as they say on Wikipedia. When I was out on a field training with the Squadron, the two Operators of the Javelin said that the total cost of their "Baby" was about a mil. No joke. One was a Captain and one was a First Sergeant. Right now, I'm going to stick with what they say until I get extensive proof. Oorah.

Well, I don't know what to say Major. I guess all that time I spent as Active Duty Air Force just didn't give me enough knowledge to argue ROTC hearsay, lol. I forgot how much I "knew" when I was younger. Those were nice times. Enjoy them.

Meh... I could care less. But I was stating what I heard. Nothing more.
