UK seeks Javelin Lightweight Command Launch Unit

Aug 5, 2022

(Raytheon Missiles & Defense) The US Defense Security Cooperation Agency (DSCA) announced on its website on 1 August that the Department of State had approved a possible Foreign Military Sales (FMS) of 513 Javelin Lightweight Command Launch Units (LWCLUs) to the UK, for an estimated value of USD300 million. Also included in the potential sale are LWCLU Basic Skill Trainers; Javelin Outdoor Trainers; Javelin Vehicle Launcher Electronics (JVL-Es); associated training packages, training documentation, and lifecycle support; and Systems Integration and Check Out. This order would make the UK the first export customer for the LWCLUs. A UK Ministry of Defence (MoD) spokesperson told Janes on 3 August, “We are committed to the Javelin Lightweight Command Launch Unit and have requested further information from our partners. The Javelin capability will enhance the battlegroup-level anti-armour capability and ensure the British military maintains its leading edge on the battlefield.” Janes Mock-up of the Javelin LWCLU.
